Salado, TX is the next day-cation or weekend getaway you need to take right now! It’s conveniently located along I35 between Austin and Waco. This quaint village is filled with shopping, local eateries, a recently renovated historic hotel and a beautiful creek running through Main Street. Salado can easily entertain you and your family for a whole weekend. I only skimmed the surface and will definitely need to go back soon. I hear they pull out all the stops for Christmas! Check out my highlights below. (Photos by Jeannie Warner)
Sofi’s a cute eclectic shop that will inspire your crafty side. They handpick unique items including local art, clothing, jewelry and home decor. One stop and you will complete your Christmas shopping list. My mom purchased the rhino Papier-mâché rattle for Mr. babes.
Timeless upscale consignment is a shop for fashionistas who likes a bargain. Do you pride yourself on finding designer brands at a fraction of the cost? I personally love a good deal and enjoy the hunt most of all. You never know what you might find. It’s the unknown that drives me to continue visiting the same secondhand places over and over. They are ever changing like fashion itself.
Salado Creek Antiques is a beautiful high end antique shop. It looks like a museum of fine furniture and glassware. Perfect for the collector or if you just need more mahogany & leather bound books in your life. My wedding was Alice in wonderland themed so you better believe my eye was on that pastel China.
Strawberry Patch is a delicious treat! They have the greatest selection of canned jellies and hot sauces. We were first introduced to the candied jalapeños as a gift from my mom. We have yet to find another jar that compares! We stock up to create gift baskets for holidays or for friends out of state. It’s like a local Texas fruit stand that’s always in season.
Chupacabra wasn’t open when we passed through but we are looking forward to trying it on our next visit!
