What to Buy in Marfa, Texas

Marfa, Texas, is known for its art scene, but this small desert outpost also contains a number of stylish shops. All of them are independently owned and within walking distance of one another, which makes for an unusually pleasant and unhurried retail experience. Here are a few of my favorite purchases from my latest trip.

The Marfa Book Company has been in open for 20 years, but it recently moved into a new retail space inside the Hotel Saint George. The stylish bookstore sells a nice selection of large-format books and prints on modern art and Southwest living in a gallery-like atmosphere. Grab a margarita at the Bar Saint George and casually shop for a beautiful book to adorn your coffee table back home.
