There are lots of great shopping opportunities for home decor in Waco, Texas. You may visit Waco to see the wonderful Silos, but hopefully you have some time to visit the other great shops that have been in Waco for years. Today, I am sharing some of my favorite home decor shops located on Austin Ave in downtown Waco.
The great thing about Austin Ave is it is a short drive from the Silos or you can take the trolly for free. Please note the trolly does not run in front of all the shops on Austin Ave!
Check out wacoheartoftexas.com for more information or track the Silo trolley here. The trolley runs through the Silo District every 20 minutes Mon – Sat 9 am – 630 pm.
Now, lets get started on Austin Ave. Thanks to many efforts by Chip and Joanna and fellow Wacoans, the downtown Waco area is growing and old buildings are being restored to house new shops and restaurants.
Honey’s Home Style is actually located ‘uptown’ but it is one of my favorite places to shop. Honey is an interior designer and carries high end lines of bedding, couches, rugs, furniture and lighting. She also has a few vintage pieces with a french country vibe that I love. This is where I bought my custom slipcovered sectional sofa. Honey helped me pick out this gorgeous fabric. I would have never picked out a patterned print without her suggestion, but it is one of my favorite pieces in our home.
A block away is the shops at Sironia! Located inside is a clothing boutique, several small booths that sell home decor, clothing, jewelry and a sandwich shop.
Located across the street are a few more home decor shops, including Junque Queen’s. There is a lot of white painted furniture, handmade signs and a children’s clothing boutique inside.
Next door is La Grange. This is a small home decor shop with lots of vintage finds and architectural pieces at great prices. I believe these two shops are open Thursday through Saturday only.
I found this chalkboard at La Grange for $100! I have found some of my favorite chippy wood gates and architectural salvage pieces at this store!
A few blocks away in downtown Waco is a row of shops including Christi’s. Before Chip and Joanna, Christi was on Trading Spaces. Christi is another amazing Waco interior designer with her own bedding line. Next door is Papillon which has real European antiques including French baskets and vintage demijohns. Because of the authenticity of these antiques, the price tags matches!
Christi’s is where I found my beautiful ruffled bed skirt, shown below!
Across the street is a new shop called Simply Irresistible that opened last year. This shop has beautiful displays with new and vintage decor. There are a few booths of home decor located inside too. There are lots of vintage finds, chippy furniture, architecture, handmade signs, lighting options and reclaimed wood pieces.
A few blocks away in the middle of downtown Waco on Austin Ave in is Cameron Trading Co. This shop has been in Waco for as long as I remember, so at least 20 years. As a photography major at Baylor years ago, my husband would find vintage cameras here to give to me as gifts. I still have them! Cameron Trading is made up of individual booths, so the assortment varies from good ole junk to antiques, but its all old stuff at reasonable prices. I have found silver platters, brass candlesticks, blue and white dishes, and aqua jars here for years.
