Shops in the Fort Worth Stockyards
Dozens of shops are sprinkled throughout the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District. And, much like the rest of Fort Worth, these businesses are locally owned. Know your hat or boot size? Order 'em up from M.L. Leddy's, Cavender's, Fincher's or Maverick Fine Western Wear. Love a great country tune? Snag a record from Chief Records. Fabulous jewelry options, souvenirs and more can be found here.
Funky Finds in the Near Southside
The Near Southside is made up of mom-and-pop businesses. Shops like Kendall Clay Davis, Danette's Urban Oasis and Etico have shifted to the online model in recent days. Fort Worth Locals, LAUDE the Label and Winton & Waits have long offered online shopping and will continue to do so. Follow all on social media for real-time updates and ordering specifications.
Fort Worth Museum Gift Shops
The museums of the Cultural District have re-opened with limited hours and you can shop their gift shops in-person or online. The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth sells prints, clothing, books and postcards through its online portal. The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame has some of the coolest western jewelry, clothing and trinkets around. The Amon Carter Museum of American Art and the Sid Richardson Museum also have lovely shops worthy of a browse.
Shopping centers like Sundance Square, Crockett Row at West 7th, the Shops at Clearfork, Westbend, Waterside, University Village and Tanger Outlets all thrive on foot traffic. During this time of social distancing many have limited hours and capacities so consider shopping your favorite boutique online. Sundance Square shops like Parts Unknown, Overland Sheepskin Co. and Yours Truly have online storefronts.

We've published numerous gift guides to Fort Worth over the years. One that makes repeat appearances is Shop Small Fort Worth. Local small business owners showcase various gifts, clothing and more in one physical location, The Collective on Montgomery Street, as well as online. Owner Whitney Howell's personal line, Cowtown Made, is a must for Fort Worth-centric gifts and decor.
