1. Main Street Mercantile
Main Street Mercantile, better known as “The Merc“, was born from a love of old things, and Old Town. Local natives (Fight Farmers, Fight!) and owners of The Merc, Randy and Ronda Owens, saw the untapped potential of Old Town Lewisville as an opportunity to share their passion for vintage treasures.
In 2013, The Merc was founded and took residence in a historic 1920’s house on the corner of Charles and Main. After just a couple of years, the need for a larger space was undeniable. So in 2015, The Merc packed it’s bags and moved down the street to occupy a suite in the iconic brick buildings of Old Town, with double the space!
Heading into it’s fifth year, The Merc has 14 dealers, and is bursting at the seams with beautiful pieces.
