Shopping Main Street: Boerne

Main Street Boerne

About 30 miles north of San Antonio lies the charming town of Boerne, Texas. Settled originally by German immigrants Boerne is picturesque and beyond lovely with the main street bi-sected by a meandering river. The banks of which are perfect picnic location material.


More Main Street-my favorite building,bought my first antique here in College.

New bedding store


Town square


Now to share with you one of my all time favorite shops. Good & Co. antiques is a lovely collection of old buildings and an interior courtyard right on main street. (I took some great shots of the exterior, but the new camera and I have not reached an understanding yet.) Good & Co. has a British/French colonial feel that appeals to me. The shop is such a brilliantly merchandised collection of gorgeous vintage and antique pieces with some new items thrown in for good measure. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do each time I visit.




Crazy about that cane trunk.

Magnificent mahogany armoire. Hmm... that armillary looks sort of familiar (Mrs. Blandings )

Brilliant use of a closet.



That buffet is calling to me!








Last shot is of the front of the store on my way out. Thank you to Good & Co. for indulging me in letting me capture the store in photos. Stop by if you make it to Boerne. It's such a treat.

Oh I'm tempted to fly to Texas just for that store!! (well, if I could afford it right now, money and time-wise...).

I am SOOOO in love with that black framed mirror - any ideas how many gazillions of dollars it was?

Claudia- Call Allison, one of the owners 830-249-6101. I spoke to her today, very charming and helpful. I think everything was well priced in the store.

I've driven by Bourne so many times, and have never actually been there. It looks very cute.

We moved here in Feb. to this great little town and am still making "finds." "Milk and Honey Original"is an absolutely darling children's store (mostly toys, room accessories, bedding, etc.) with probably the best selection of Melissa & Doug wooden puzzles, trains, etc., this side of Conn.
