    Fincher's White Front Western Store: Stop Here For Buckles, Belts and Boots

    by VeronicaG Updated Oct 7, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fincher's is the place to go if you like the look of the Old West! They've got suede vests, gleaming silver or brass belt buckles, smart-looking cowboy boots, leather and silver studded belts, unique jewelry, spiffy children's clothing, great-looking adult clothing and other Western gear including blue jeans.

    We stopped by to find a pair of cowboy boots for our grandson, who promptly found a pair of black ones he liked. He was nicely fitted by one of the sales staff and encouraged to walk around the store to adjust to his new footwear. I think he's a natural!

    You'll find good quality merchandise and helpful staff here. Why not buy a token of your visit that will last...located in the heart of the Stockyards.

    What to buy: Western paraphenalia

    Montgomery Street Antique Mall: Super Antique Shop

    by VeronicaG Updated Oct 7, 2008

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My husband and I love wandering the aisles of antique shops, so have searched out a few since moving to Texas. The Montgomery Street Antique Mall was recommended by several people, so while hubby was away on business a friend and I dropped in to see what all they had.

    We picked a great day to visit. Not only were they celebrating the 12th year of business, but most items were 20% off and champagne was being served in recognition of the occasion.

    I was a little overwhelmed at first glance, but after a moment jumped right in! There was aisle after aisle of antiques of all types and over 240 vendors. Everything and anything was here. I found some Fiesta ware--brightly colored dishes from the 50's--to add to my newly started collection. The prices seemed to be reasonable, in comparing them to similar pieces I've recently purchased.

    I've noticed most antique shops include a small tearoom. In this case, it was the Secret Garden Restaurant . Hours for the antique mall are Mon.-Sat. 10 am-6pm; Sun. 12n-6pm.

    UPDATE: We stopped by after the Stock Show and Rodeo and found that many vendors had sales going on once again--this is a great place!

    What to buy: Anything with some age---you name it! A place this large has to have what you're looking for...

    What to pay: Moderate to pricey

    M.L. Leddy's Boot and Saddlery: Hand Made Boots

    by grandmaR Updated Sep 1, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fort Worth storefront

    My second daughter had custom handmade English riding boots made by a bootmaker in Colorado. M. L. Leddy is apparently a very famous bootmaker making western riding boots.

    M L Leddy doesn't make boots at the Stockyard store now, they are made in San Angelo.

    Someone has recommended that you go into the boot and saddle stores and look at the fantastic work they do. I haven't been into this store, but I am sure it would be interesting.

    What to buy: Texas Best - Cowboy Culture says: T"he modern day cowboy boot evolved from the utility boot designed to fit the stirrup of a saddle. As a result, there are boots made for riding, rodeoing, and walking... Two inch riding heels don't make good walking boots." I think that's why cowboays that have been riding walk sort of funny.

    They add: "Get a custom made pair if you can afford them...

    "The stitching on the boot top originally served to hold the multi layers of leather together without sagging. The more rows of stitching the more expensive the boot. A work boot might have four rows of stitching and a dress boot will have six to eight rows of stitching. Inlays and overlays of leather shapes are found on a Hollywood type boot.

    What to pay: Someone posted on the internet that their boots cost them $650.00. Another site says, "Handmade boots from $475. to $1,275." Still another places says, :"A custom boot fitting will run $200.00 and the boots are an additional $4,500.00 and up. " Expect six weeks or more for delivery.

    Shops in Stockyard

    Stockyards Station area is truly an unique and very cosy-idyllic shopping spot. We had a lot of fun strolling along the shops. Also we had bottles of Dr. Pepper. Dr. Pepper, born in central Texas, is a native Texan soda. Very sweet and yummy. Along the shopping area, benches are provided almost at every other corner, makes shopping cosy and relaxing. Also a little train is conneting ppl from Stockyards Station to out of town. No stops in between though. Stockyards Station is a unique western destination located in the National Historic Fort Worth Stockyards district. It was once the biggest and busiest livestock-marketing center in the Southwest. Stockyards Station is now home to over 20 unique shops and fantastic restaurants, including galleries, clothing stores, jewelers, antiques, specialty stores and much more.

    Fort Worth Livestock Exchange: Live Animals

    by ATXtraveler Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sometimes, when you are looking for the perfect gift for that spouse or loved one, you overlook the gift of live animals. A cute puppy, or a baby kitten can sometimes be the perfect gift. Others look for the smaller creatures for a child like a fish, or a pet snake. I on the other hand prefer to give 800 pound longhorns to the people I love.

    If you are the type that likes to give divine bovine to those on your loved ones list, then the Fort Worth Stock Exchange is place to get some of the best. This place has been around for over a century (not all 100 years in this location), and at one time could ship out 5 million head of livestock. That is no small feet, so you know they are well equipped to Git Er Done.

    Anyway, if you want that special gift, this is the place.

    What to buy: Bovine and Bovine accessories.

    What to pay: $4 or $5 dollars a pound.

    The Candy Barrel shop is like a paradise of sweets, it's a mix of rainbow,- melon,- lemon,- strawberries colored and smelling store. If I could have moved in, I would have done, and live there by now. Happily ever after. Eventually I yet left there. With a bag full of a dream of candies. And a black sticker saying I LOVE TEXAS. And yes, I do love Texas.

    Sundance Square has a number of shops with a Western theme--Retro Cowboy has quite alot to offer in this regard. This store is packed with gifts that shout TEXAS!

    It's a great place to find Western inspired souvenirs and children's clothing, leather purses, candles, armadillo candle holders, vintage posters, specialty foods from the region, t-shirts, rhinestone buckles, leather belts, country western CD's, cowboy hats, longhorn stuffed toys, wooden signs (picture 2), candy novelties (picture 3), wines from Texas and more.

    It's fun taking our visitors here because they always find something to take home. A nice perk to one's visit is that parking is free at Sundance Square on the weekends--so why not drop by!

    Leddy's Ranch: Elegant Westernwear in Sundance Square

    by VeronicaG Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Leddy's Ranch is where you may want to go if you're looking for 'dressing up' your Western look. You'll find Lucchese Boots, fine men and women's clothing, snap shirts, many styles of leather belts, cool cowboy hats, comfy blue jeans and great jewelry all trimmed or decked out in Western style...but elegantly.

    I like to browse through this shop to look at all the trendy clothing! I'm drawn to the Western boots each time I visit--but I'm stalled by the price. However, these boots look so well made that I'm sure they'd last a decade or more!

    There is also a Leddy's Ranch at the Stockyard District in a more casual setting. In any event, there may just be something waiting here for you at either store.

    Hours are Mon.-Thurs. 10am-7pm; Fri. & Sat. 10am-8pm; Sun. 12N-5pm.

    What to pay: Fairly pricey

    Schakolad Chocolate Factory

    On a recent weekend, we popped into Schakolad Chocolate Factory after traveling to Ft.Worth. Once the front door opened, the wondrous aroma of chocolate wrapped itself around us and pulled us to the glass case, where all sorts of luscious confections were waiting.

    I spied a mini-chocolate cowboy hat (picture 2) for a couple dollars that I wanted to try. Ummm, it was so creamy and delicious! I'm afraid this will be a frequent stop for this 'chocoholic' when traveling to Sundance Square.

    The store specializes in handmade European-style chocolates. as well as, sugar free and low carb chocolates, wedding favors, custom chocolate designs, wedding favors and gift baskets. Stop by for a taste of the 'divine'. Their motto is "chocolate to live by".

    Hours are Mon.-Thurs. 10am-7pm; Fri. & Sat. 10am-9pm and Sun. 1pm-5pm.

    What to buy: Everything chocolate formed and filled

    What to pay: moderately priced
