Shopping for antiques, like going to garage sales, isn’t everybody’s idea of a good time. But for those of us who enjoy the doggedness of the hunt and the thrill of the find, there is little better. If that sounds like you, consider spending a few days at our Central Texas Bed and Breakfast while antiquing in nearby towns.
About ten miles northeast of Cat Spring, Bellville TX is home to Nothing Ordinary Antiques, Cottonwood Cottage, and Antiques Etc Emporium, all within a few blocks of each other. Nothing Ordinary is located in an early 1900’s auto dealership, and upon entering it is clear that the walls house something special. The space is large – nearly 8,000 square feet – so perseverance and energy are required. This is a good place to find Victorian beadwork, Majolica from England, Europe and Japan, and lovely lace and linens.
About ten miles southeast of Cat Spring, Sealy TX is home to Bitter Weeds Antiques, Stokes Antiques, Four w Co, and Hradil Auction Co. & Antiques. Hradil’s puts on auctions and estate sales every other Sunday – a great place to find all sorts of unexpected and unusual items.
Cat Spring’s local treasure is Mustang Alley, located in an old general store close to Carol’s fine dining restaurant. Here you’ll find everything from antiques to jewelry, along with an impressive selection of Brazilian cowhides.
Antique hunters should enjoy lodging at our Central Texas guest cabins, since they are furnished with antiques. Poke around nearby antique stores by day, and sleep on a comfortable antique bed at night.
