If you are a lover of all things Mexican, there is a treat waiting for you on the banks of the Guadalupe River in the Old Ingram Loop. Established in 1989 and housed in a 100 year old building that was once the Old Dog Saloon, HORSEFEATHERS personifies the ambiance of Mexico. Every inch of it's 1500 sq. feet is filled with specially selected crafts from deep in the interior of Mexico, Central and South America. For riverside shopping, the adjoining courtyard and patio present Canterra (Mexican Limestone) and clay for landscaping with a Mexican influence. HORSEFEATHERS offers Peruvian, Mexican and Guatemalan Folk Art, traditional and contemporary, but their specialty is Vintage Mexican Ceramics and Textiles - they are well known for their sizeable collection.
Under the category of "Lavinias' Art" you will find the work of an artist extraordinarie, Lavinia Schlabach. If you are able to visit our area, you may see that exhibits exclusively in her own gallery, OLD INGRAM GALLERY & STUDIO , directly across from HORSEFEATHERS . She has also amassed a vast collection of vintage clothing and costume jewelry, some of which we will be offering from time to time.
Don't forget to drop in the other shops on the OLD INGRAM LOOP where you will find several artist and their galleries, antique and gift shops, handmade leather boots, belts and saddles, custom belt buckles, wood carving and custom furniture, and custom lamps and shades. The OLD INGRAM LOOP is a gathering of specialty shops and galleries housed in the historical buildings and spaces of Ingram, Texas.
Marrena Robinson, Owner and Mary Waller, Manager, invite you to visit HORSEFEATHERS and enjoy the lazy meandering of the Guadalupe River at the back door. Don't forget to give Pierre (the shop cat) a pat on the head before you leave - he will be expecting it!
