HOUSTON – Go Texan Day is this Friday, and RodeoHouston starts on Feb. 28. It’s time to dig through your closet or go shopping. You want buckles, boots, and bling, but you don’t want to spend big bucks. Consumer expert Amy Davis is sharing her go-to retailers to get Rodeo-ready on a budget.
Designer Diva Resale
Address: 10605 Stebbins Circle, Houston, TX, United States, Texas (make sure you have this new address!)
Give yourself plenty of time to browse this huge store. It is Texas’ largest resale store. We found discounted hats, jackets, belts and western dresses. If you are looking for something simple, consider adding western jewelry to an outfit you already own. Join the VIP email list here so you will get sale and clearance alerts.
A New U Boutique
Address: 11407 Spring Cypress Rd. #280, Tomball, TX 77377
This Tomball clothing consignment store has a healthy selection of western wear. Owner Cheryl Copperwheat can help you pull an outfit together with a mix of true western wear and clothing that can be worn for the Rodeo and other days of the year. If you don’t want to make the drive, check out the boutique’s Facebook page to see new styles daily. Copperwheat sells her styles online and ships clothing all over the country.
Hand Me Downs
Address: 3837 Southwest Freeway, Houston, TX 77027
This upscale consignment shop has been in business for 40 years in Houston. Everything inside is $9.99 and up. We found a small selection of Rodeo attire, and some of the clothing still had the original store tags on them. You’ll also find jewelry and handbags. Hand Me Downs only sells boots at rodeo time.
Kid to Kid
There are three Kid to Kid locations (Champions, Atascocita and The Woodlands). Each store collects Rodeo wear all year-long so they can set it out weeks ahead of rodeo season. You’ll find kids’ boots in all sizes and plenty of hats, plaid, and denim to outfit your buckaroo.
There are more than 30 Fiesta locations in Houston and they carry western wear for the entire family.
When you hit up a Goodwill store in Houston, you may have to dig a little, but you can usually find real rodeo treasures. During a quick stop by one Goodwill, we found boots for kids and adults with prices starting at $3.99 for kid boots. Denim button-up shirts start at $1.99.
When all else fails, head to Amazon. Just search for “cowboy outfit,” and you will find plenty of choices, some of which can be delivered in two days or less.
