Where Are the Best Shopping Experiences?
If you are a great candidate for that bumper sticker “Born to Shop,” then there are plenty of options in the region. The winners and honorable mentions of County Line Magazine’s Best of the Upper East Side of Texas — as selected by our reader poll — are a great place to start.
Let’s start with the overall “Best Shopping Experience” champs:
- First Monday Trade Days, Canton (2017)
- Uptown Forum, Greenville (2016)
- Downtown Mineola, Mineola (2015)
The category of “Best Home Décor” goes to Pandora’s Box of Frankston. Featuring vintage to the newest trends in décor, Pandora’s Box offers “a carnival of cool curiosities.” Located in the little town of Frankston on Texas 155, the shop offers a treasure trove of antiques, furnishings, primitives, stained glass, ironwork, imports, architectural salvage and an outdoor area featuring perennials, garden statuary, arbors, gazebos, and other outdoor furniture. 302 North Highway 155. 903.876.5056. www.pandorasboxantiques.com.
Finally, check out a few winners in the “Best Antique Store” category.
For the 2017 poll, Mr. B’s Antiques of Ben Wheeler took the award. Visitors to this downtown store find scores of hidden treasures here from antique furnishings to collectibles to artwork in a concept that feels like a 140-year-old general store. It’s operated by the owners of Wagon Wheel Antique Mall in Murchison. 903.833.1070. www.benwheelertx.com.
Honorable mentions: Beauweavils and Finders Keepers, Winnsboro; Margaret & Ophelia’s Antiques & Uniques, Henderson; Pandora’s Box, Frankston; and Town Square Antiques, Sulphur Springs
