Places to Shop ~ A Visit to Emporium 1905

Emporium 1905 is located down in the heart of Corsicana, Texas, in the revamped old-town district. It is a treasure trove of fun goods to wear and home decor goodies to add to your home. I will be heading down to Corsicana this weekend for an IOOF event and will definitely be stopping by! Let’s see what I found for you this past fall…

Emporium 1905 is fun vintage dress and housewares shop owned by two sisters who have went in business together after both retired from their previous lives. Finding themselves a little bored with retirement, they decided to open their shop five years ago to meet new people and do something fun. The name itself comes from the age of the building when it first opened.

Located next to another favorite shop I found last time I was down in Corsicana ~ Victorian Sample Florist (and jeweler) ~ and also talked about in this other post ~ Tom’s Secret GardenEmporium 1905 holds all kinds of vintage dresses, hats and shoes for anyone looking to dress up for a special occasion!

Of course there is a good selection of Texas goodies in amongst the mid-century canning jars, books, embroidered tea towels, bakeware and such. I love stores like this, don’t you? They are fascinating to browse and you just never know what will strike your fancy and have to “come home!”

Look at the chickens!!! I still love chickens ever since my grandmother
Helen had so many lined up above her kitchen counters…

The two sisters also have a surprise Christmas room!

Christmas anytime of year? Yes, please!

I know many of us love vintage Christmas decor so this is a must-stop shop for you if you are ever down this way. I found those little cotton elves like my mother used to collect plus vintage Golden Books with Christmas themes for children (and adults!). 

Just look at this sweet Santa! “Take me home!” I clearly heard him say…

On this day I found a 1950’s style hat for my friend Laura and a pressed metal scrolled vanity mirror to use in our bathroom.

If you are ever in the area, do stop by! These two ladies are a hoot and know much about the history of the area. They will also gladly tell you about the goods they pass onto you.

  1. What a fabulously creative thing to do in one's retirement, starting a gorgeous shop like this. I'd definitely love to spend a couple of hours exploring here, Barb, and I'm so glad you offered me the chance for a virtual visit! Thank you so much for bringing this post to the Hearth and Soul Link Party and for being a part of the H&S community. I’m featuring this post at the party this week. Hope to ‘see’ you there. Wishing you a safe and healthy week.
