BRYAN, TX — The eclectic South Congress (SoCo)shopping district has come to 32nd Street and South Main in Bryan!! Vintage
Rose held its grand opening July 24th. Proprietress Rosemary Rodriguez can boast the most pollos (that’s chickens for you gringos) under one roof in the Brazos Valley. She’s collected great Mid-Century furniture, retro clothing, and other fun decor.
Down the street there are the BV Decorative Center at 401 S Main, Earth Art at 209 S Main, Southern Grace Antiques at 102 S Main, and waaaay too many more great stops to mention. Really you need to go get in your car and shop it! We’re talking about a 15 minute trip downtown as opposed to 2 hours to Austin or 9 hours to New Orleans.
Get the full SoCo experience when you attend a First Friday (one coming up this Friday August 6th). Sometimes I even pick up a New Orleans vibe, as I walk down the street with others, smelling the great food, hearing the music pouring out from Stafford Main or Revolution Cafe. Who would have thought the City of Bryan would draw this funky urban artsy crowd?!?
Back to Rosemary at the Vintage Rose, her store hours are Wednesday through Saturday from 10a-5p. Start your shopping excursion at her bright yellow store and make your way down Main Street. Finish off your evening at the new Lemon Wedge Restaurant.

Only a few more days of triple digits,
