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 125 Highland Street in Marfa had humbler beginnings. We first met Mark Wilkerson, proprietor of Pronghorn, along with Cody David Bauer, when we moved back to Fort Davis last summer. 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 the 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.)
Last fall, 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.

I loved all the pictures, got some ideas too.
Tell Mark he looks a lot like Ashton Kutcher (I think they are both cute).
Keep sending your weekly blogs. May take me awhile but I always catch up.
Thank You, Kathy! Always love your comments. I’ll pass along your compliment to Mark. He is undoubtedly one of the nicest (and cutest) people I have met in a long time. And Pronghorn is an amazing shop. I get ideas every time I go over there, too. Mark’s design sense continues to Wow me.
All the Best,
