Since R.E. Dennard opened his first store in 1890, Dennards Farm & Western Wear's family owners have been outfitting farmers and cowboys in a range of durable stable supplies and western threads. Men's and women's jeans by Cinch and Cruel Girl ($39.95–$59.95) swathe legs in style durable enough for equine adventures or nights on the town. Industrious toes can peruse the selection of footwear, such as men's waxy brown Justin work boots ($89.95), or design a pair of custom cockroach killers with a choice of leathers, patterns, and John Wayne catchphrases. Meanwhile, trusty steeds adorn themselves in an array of tack such as Futurity nylon sheets ($39.95), wooden 3-inch bell stirrups ($49.95), and antique arena show spurs ($34.95), which flaunt a stainless-steel trim to keep heels flashy as they goad show horses and sluggish cab drivers alike.
Pro Design Center's craftspeople custom construct blinds and shutters from PVC, wood, and faux wood and affix them to residential and commercial windows alike. They also drape portholes with a stock of window coverings from Hunter Douglas and Comfortex, which they fit to windows of all sizes and shapes, including arches. During in-home consultations, staff members unfurl measuring tape around the window's frame and waistline, flip through sample books with the customer before undertaking the project. Once clients choose their blinds or shutters, the crew drills and maneuvers these coverings into place with installation.

Father-and-son team Robert and Fred Lee worked as homebuilders for years before going into business selling lights in 1965, so they knew how quickly something impressive could rise from a humble foundation. Sure enough, Lee Lighting, their small family company, grew to include a vast online retail shop and one of the largest lighting dealers in Texas. They've even purchased Savoy, a company that designs fixtures to bring cheer to dining rooms and make rooms full of ventriloquist dummies less terrifying.
Lee Lighting stocks shelves with a diverse selection of indoor lamps from brands including ELK Lighting, Quoizel, and Hudson Valley. Staffers certified by the American Lighting Association move beneath the dazzling crystal sprays and faux candles of chandeliers. They suggest outdoor lighting to transform backyards into regal terraces. They also stay abreast of lighting trends to help patrons select lights that will stay in style.
