Heights Mercantile

Over the weekend I finally decided to check out the Heights Mercantile Area that opened up last year and am so glad that I did!

Heights Mercantile (located at Yale and 7th Ave) is an urban market district that comprises of several shops and eateries, which includes The Gypsy Wagon’s Houston location. This store is ah-ma-zing! Not only do they sell stationary and products by Rifle Paper Co. but they also have the cheekiest home decor and fun clothing styles.

Another popular store that is located in Heights Mercantile is the storefront for eyewear brand Warby Parker. Known for their retro styles and “Buy A Pair, Give A Pair” program, Warby Parker has become a household name now in the world of eyewear, which is easy to see due to the crowd that gathers in their store.

So if you live in the Houston area or are coming to visit here soon, be sure to check out Heights Mercantile and the quirky Heights neighborhood that it sits in.

To the right of Adickes Sculpturworx Studio in The Heights area lie busts of presidents along with a larger than life sculpture set of The Beatles–with their guitars and all! There also used to be a “We ❤ Houston” sculpture sign but that has recently been moved closer towards Downtown Houston.

If you’re in Houston, do make a quick stop to see all the sculptures as it’s just an unusual site. Even just stopping for a few minutes, like we did this past Saturday on the way to a Houston Roller Derby match in Downtown, is all you need.

 

Hope y’all had a great weekend as well!

P.S. I swear I didn’t purposely plan on wearing a Beatles tee, life can just be ironic like that.
