Well folks, you can't get much more Texan than Silver Star Mercantile & Co. in Carrollton, TX.  When you pull up to their storefront you know you are in for a real southern treat.  It's one of those stores that has a little bit of everything, new and old, and a whole lot of southern pride.  You will find signs with good ole Texan sayings, handmade items, apparel for the country girl and some great vintage treasures.  And, with the July 4th holiday around the corner, you are going to be tickeled red, white and blue with all the patriotic decor. Owner, Susan Myers, has kept Silver Star Mercantile going for 12 years so she's doing something right, ya'll. So, make your way to downtown Carrollton and pop in to get out of the heat, find some southern charm and even listen to a good story or two. It's kind of like visiting with a neighbor on their back porch...wooden rocking chairs and all.  It really is a fun store!
