I really enjoy a good antique shop, but this place was disorganized and a big pile of junk. Good luck finding anything in this mess.

One of my favorite places in Gonzales. The gentleman is kind and fair with his prices. He has a little bit of everything and a lot of character. Whether you want a keepsake, a gift, or simply to look around, I would suggest this as...More

This is your place. There's so much stuff in there that the owner has no idea of all his inventory. Great place for "pickers".

On a recent trip we stopped to check out the Emporium - interesting. Rows and rows of stuff piled high and deep. Very dusty - watch where you walk - not recommended for small children - they may get lost. Looked like items stacked from...More

I've just got back from a road trip in Texas and we made an unscheduled stop at Gonzales. My wife had been looking for a store like the Emporium and she was not disappointed. To be honest, had it not been for our hungry 18...More
