Marfa may be small, but it’s not without its own unique, charming shops. At The Hotel Paisano, shop Paisano Drygoods for leather bags, books on the area, Marfa mugs and souvenirs.
Or, pop on over to my favorite discovery, JM Dry Goods, where the indie and vintage picks (and colors!) will delight and astound.
From Mexican ponchos and fab hats to blankets and bedspreads, JM Dry Goods is a visual feast for the eyes.
Run by a former Brooklynite (who has the cutest ’40’s bob and red lipstick — sorry, I didn’t get a pic!) with a great curatorial eye, you’ll think Hey didn’t I see that on Design*Sponge?
Indeed you did.
Hats off to eye-popping color.
Pick up some boots or simply a t-shirt.
Or, if you want to pick up a purple and green broom like the one you fell for at El Cosmico, you can! Might as well snag a hammock while you’re at it, too.
Spot the Food Shark Dining Car (i.e. the blue bus) in the distance and the What You See Is Not What It Is sign, which couldn’t sum up Marfa better.
Then pop next door to Fancy Pony Land, where you’ll find handcrafted dresses, skirts and more. It’s part gallery too. Is this the best name ever for a shop or what?
In addition to cool boutiques, Marfa has a rock and gem shop too. Which makes sense because, as you know, Marfa rocks (couldn’t resist!).
