The Mercantile and Free Parking for Carpools of 3!

The Mercantile on Fort Worth's Camp Bowie Blvd. is the Parking Sponsor for the March 1,2,3, 2019 Fort Worth Show of Antiques and Art. 

How? Come in a carpool of 3 ticket buyers. Pay to park. Receive a cash parking refund at the Mercantile Booth at the show entrance after you buy your tickets.  Look for the big red M. Pretty sweet! Pretty easy!

Why? "We love being involved in the antiques community and we take pride in being part of the Fort Worth Show," says Mercantile General Manager Tim Beckett, right. "And we love buying and selling antiques and art at the Mercantile. Come see us."

All parking fee refunds at the Fort Worth Show will come with another gift for you --- a discount coupon for your next Mercantile visit. They are open 7 days a week on the Weatherford Traffic Circle, at 7200 Camp Bowie Blvd. 

What's at The Mercantile? Founded by the late Fort Worth businessman Holt Hickman, The Mercantile offers 40,000 square feet with 204 dealer booths of antiques, fashion, decor, art, gifts, books and a tearoom, open 361 days a year.

 At the Fort Worth Show you can meet 2 Mercantile dealers, Merryl Carson and Tracy Morse with Our Fort Finds, featuring mid-century and vintage home decor, furniture and original art. Tip: they find the best stuff!  

Need gifts? The Mercantile offers lots of gift ideas, both new and old, a book nook, furniture, lighting, art, jewelry, rugs and styles from rustic to glam.

Several dealers at The Mercantile are artists, such as cowgirl artist TK Riddle. I knew when I walked in to TK's booth that it was hers-- not just because of her paintings of cowgirls like Mitzi Riley, but because of the vintage dishes and art with delicate images of birds. TK loves birds almost as much as she loves cowgirls.  
Some of my favorite booths include Tom Duke's collection of Staffordshire dogs and Susan Davis, with Victorian to early 20th C. smalls, jewelry and furniture.

The Mercantile also offers regular classes in DIY projects--crafting, home decor, seasonal projects. 


Over the last few years, I've bought some good things at The Mercantile. Here's the jacket that I will be wearing at the Fort Worth Show. Arty and great texture and fit --or at least I think so!  

The 6 fashion stores at The Mercantile are fabulous. The staff are there every day to help you, they have dressing rooms and regular discounts/sales. And each of the 6 carries a different look and different lines of clothing and accessories. Look for these clothing stores inside The Mercantile: FLAX, Hip Chic, Cashmere Bouquet, Swice and Chimps. Good range of styles, sizes and prices. The newest clothing boutiques at the Mercantile are Nomadic with casual men's clothing, polos, jeans, belts and men's grooming products.... plus Casey & Co. which offers mid-price clothing for younger professional women.        

And here are a pair of huge wrought iron panels that I bought at The Mercantile and displayed, right, in my booth at the Marburger Farm Antique Show. Sold!

By the way, The Mercantile has a great staff, willing to help you load the big buys like these. The mall is clean, well-lit and full, full, full of finds.  
Of course there are keepers too, such as this c. 1950 folk art inlaid wood table that I found folded against a wall in a Mercantile booth. "Anything," said Cadillac Jack, "can be anywhere." (Right now it's in my living room!) 

The Mercantile offers a mix of different styles and eras. English, American, estate sale finds, Victorian, Contemporary, and more. 

And that's not to mention the award-winning Rose Garden Tearoom. Try the Chicken Salad and Peach Tea!
