:: Railside Architecturals & Antiques: Looking for a weathered fireplace mantle, old door, or just a doorknob? Get your fix on fixtures here. Info.
:: Bougie Redneck: This place that calls itself “a little fancy with a healthy dose of redneck” has become a local favorite of those in the upcycling business. You’ll find the cheapest bargains on the old school bus out front. Info.
Bonus: Shop downtown Cameron this Saturday during the town’s Summer Sizzler Sale. The official start time is 10 a.m., but plan to start hitting vendors at 6. You know, before you start sweating all over their stuff.
