Happy Monday, everyone! Hope you had a fabulous weekend…today I am once again showing San Antonio Treasures with Leigh & Me.
Leigh Ann & I decided to share with you a few San Antonio treasures that are off the beaten path. So far we have taken you to:
And today? Believe it or not…one of our San Antonio Treasures is a hardware store! Sunset & Co.
SAN ANTONIO TREASURES: THE DISCOVERY
For years, our family lived within walking distance to this location.
It originally was a five and dime with goldfish at the bag and every little thing you can think of …many actually were nickels and dimes.
Just a side bar, in this strip center many years ago was a cafeteria …..and Mr. B’s mother worked there as a young woman. His dad would come there to eat and that is where they met.
The rest is family history.
The location went from the old five & dime to a hardware store …..mostly hardware at the front…and a few fun gifts on the side.
It slowly, over time, grew to be included among San Antonio treasures, because the buyer was so smart at selecting items women (and men) would love.
The hardware section is also affiliated with Ace Hardware which has a popular following.
I started to stop by for holiday inspiration years ago…their Christmas section is amazing was it goes up.
As they added more merchandise, I began to stop by for other San Antonio treasures.
The kitchen section was always good, but now includes a full blown kitchen for demonstrations. How fun is that?
I love to give a gift card for wedding gifts to San Antonio Treasures…and so far, I always receive a special thank you for the gift.
Then I started stopping by for baby and grandchildren gifts…as their children’s department expanded to lots and lots of fun.
In fact, the bag I am holding in the first picture is a birthday gift for my little ballerina granddaughter…all she told me she wanted was “ballet stuff.”
Then I started to stop by for accessories…I have a handbag and hat from this shop that I love.
And isn’t that scarf meant for me. I did not walk out with it, but it is still calling my name!
Now, they have clothes! Will have to check back in more often now!
SAN ANTONIO TREASURES: TO REMEMBER YOUR TIME HERE
Once again, this shop is one of our San Antonio treasures worthy of your souvenir shopping…don’t do the airport! Go off the beaten path!
It is also located next to the gorgeous McNay Art Institute…you can visit the museum and then go shopping. The whole are is fun.
Planning a day trip to the city, make sure you put in time to visit Sunset & Co.
They have expanded and now include more fun with the hammer & nails more toward the back!
It truly is one of our San Antonio Treasures.
I am always inspired by places like this and once the construction dust is gone, I will dive into bringing fall home.
I hope those of you who are planning to visit our city are earmarking these San Antonio Treasures…nothing like a fun hardware store!
Thanks for being here…please comment or ask questions…Leigh Ann says HI!
