April 2023 Update… Since I wrote the original article in the summer of 2021, Pronghorn has moved (across the street) into a larger space and expanded to fill it. After a recent visit and new photographs, I have decided to amend and update this post. Pronghorn is still one of the most interesting and innovative stores/galleries in this area. A visit to Marfa is not complete without stopping into this business (120 N. Highland).
Shopping~ Our Larger Local
This week we are featuring yet another favorite among the shopping possibilities in our West Texas #LargerLocal neighborhood. Pronghorn, now located at 120 Highland St. in Marfa had humbler beginnings. We first met Mark Wilkerson, proprietor of Pronghorn, when we moved back to Fort Davis in the summer of 2020. At the time, Pronghorn was a tiny shop in the J. Davis Emporium just off State Street.
I liked Mark immediately, and soon found out we shared many of the same tastes in art, and a similar philosophy regarding life and business. Over the months that followed, I continued to frequent his cute little shop. Two of my favorite paintings at home came from Pronghorn Fort Davis, along with a number of other treasures. (Yes, Pronghorn is a store for discovering Treasures.)
When Mark had an opportunity to move Pronghorn to the much more appealing location in downtown Marfa, I was very happy for him, but sad that Fort Davis had lost such a wonderful shop.
Pronghorn is blossoming in its new home, however. We make the comparatively short trip over to Marfa as often as we have the time, and have been delighted to watch the store not only fill up with wares exotic and rare, but to take on the wonderful and unique design aesthetic of its owner. It’s been great fun watching it grow.
