Tyler’s treasures: Take a day or two to see Tyler

You will need a day or two in Tyler to see all the great Treasures.

Start on the west side of town and travel east. From Athens/Murchison, travel East on TX-31 toward Tyler to Moore Than Imagined (#1 on Map, Info P19), to explore Chalk Painted furniture, western art, antique toys, man cave items and traditional antiques. They even have estate sales occasionally.

Just inside the Loop, Fancy’s Run (#2 on Map, info P20) has one of the best garden areas, as well as unique gifts and healthy smoothies. They feature local artists as well as gourmet gift baskets. You can also catch them at 1st Mondays in Canton inside the Arbors 2.









Head east on 31 to downtown Tyler. Take a left on Broadway and right on Locust to Ye Olde Antiques (#3 on Map, Info P20) one of the oldest and best shops in the area. Here you’ll find true antiques in the mall and a market full of oddities and other unique items. There is something for everyone here.

Head back to Broadway and take a left toward the square. Turn left again on Erwin and head east. Take a slight right on Old Henderson and you’ll find Key Antiques (#4 on Map, Info P21). This warehouse full of treasures is on the left hand side of the road. There is usually stuff outside to attract your attention.

Finally head Southeast on TX-64 to Texas Outhouse (#5 on Map, Info P19) but call first because this treasure chest is only open Canton weekends and anytime you call – 903-539-8211. Here you’ll find glassware, furniture, man cave items such as beer signs and one of the largest record collections around.
