Located in the small but growing town of Florence, Texas, site of the oldest known cultural artifacts in the western hemisphere, The Florence Marketplace sits downtown at the corner of Story & Main in a historic former Post Office, originally built in 1910.

We call our building Bessie, after the first Postmaster, whose name still adorns our threshold.  Come and see Bessie's fresh Western Chic makeover and shop a curated mix of new high-quality Dry Goods & Home Decor, Health & Beauty, Bags & Jewelry, Gifts & Crafts, and Vintage & Antiques, plus unique resale and consignments items from local curators and artisans.

A modern twist on the small town apothecary, mercantile and emporiums of old, we feature independent retailers, designers, makers, and growers as well as notable brands from around the globe - all with an eye for great products at reasonable prices.  And, attached is our sister brand, Vintage Vapor, a speakeasy-inspired vaporium complete with a lounge.

  • Courteous & Knowledgable Customer Service; First Time & Every Time

  • Curated Product Mix of Thoughfully-Sourced High-Quality Brands and Unique Finds, All at Fair Prices.
