Junk in the Trunk Tuesday! (I'm about to call this Texas Tuesday, they have junk for days)

215 Welch St. Houston, TX is the home of  

Texas Junk Co.

Houston’s largest collection of used cowboy boots, and a great selection of random Texas junk.

The owner is Bob Novotney, a baby-boomer hippie kind of guy with long, gray hair and a soul patch on his chin.  He spends his weeks scouring his connections across Texas for the goods - nice used boots, denim jackets, cowboy hats and other miscellany that he can reload his shelves with.  And, because he is shopping during the week, the store is only open Fridays and Saturdays.  Bob says that over 30 years ago with just $50 to his name, he started the company selling various odds and ends, but he came to realize that the boots were a big draw for his customers.  As his selection of boots grew, so did his customer base. "I'll go just about anywhere to pick up some new stock.  I buy boots in any condition and I'll buy every pair I can find." - See more HERE
