Let's say you need a change of pace. Something different. Something a bit out of the ordinary. A place where you can see and buy fun things. Now throw in a healthy dose of nostalgia and you've got Wabash Feed & Antique Store on Washington Avenue. It's a fun place to take older people who have ties to country living and are stuck in the BIG CITY. And it's fun for the kids to see animals, plants, and a feed store. Plus, the garden art is fun, fun, and more fun. Stop by now that it's cooler since they have no A/C.

Cloth chicken

Metal chicken

Live chicken. These beautiful Black Australorp hens just arrived and need a good home.

Lots of herbs, vegetables, and other plants.

Whimsical doesn't begin to describe the art! I love it!

This is definitely a good post for my blog, "The OTHER Houston". It's not what you imagine you'd find in a metropolis of over 2 million.


  1. Ok I love that place. I lived in Houston for 38 years and didn't know it was there. My husband and I stumbled upon it one day and I fell in love. They have puppies and kitties too. It is so neat to find a place like that in the middle of town. I told my mother we had found it and she said- oh Wabash, we used to go there and get Cokes in high school. So, it's been around a while. Every little turn in there we were like LOOK.
    Great post.

  2. I love this place. Thanks for reminding me. My puppy Scooter loves to go there also, while I'm buying lavender plants, he's picking out rawhide to chew on or sniffing the bunnies.

  3. What a fun place to visit! I need to add it to my places to visit the next time that I'm in the area. Hope you have a great weekend!
