With more than 10,000 square feet of training space and 6,000 items available in its pro shop, Bases Loaded supplies baseball and softball enthusiasts with all the practice and gear they need for success on the diamond. Players 6 to adult can hone their swats within air-conditioned batting cages fortified with pitching machines by ATEC, Beta, and Iron Mike, each a high-grade mechanical hurler that never misses a throw or sets a bad example by chewing motor oil. Elsewhere in the facility, 2,000 square feet of free weights and conditioning equipment help athletes optimize their bodies’ performance, and a snack bar replenishes burnt calories. Surrounded by flat-screen televisions, a sitting area offers a place to rest.
The retail shop at Bases Loaded stocks a huge inventory of gear by top-name brands. Full sets of catcher's gear come with free pairs of knee protectors, and adult bats by Louisville Slugger, Rawlings, DeMarini and Easton help batters better point out airplanes flying over the outfield wall.

Founded in 1964, Houston Antiques Dealers Association is just shy of antique status itself. The organization tirelessly promotes the exchange of beautiful, storied goods through its biannual shows, which gather hundreds of international antiques dealers and designers together and provide a portion of proceeds to many local charities.
Because the vendors sell thousands of wares—everything from vintage jewelry to heirloom china to antique robot vacuum cleaners—the show can be somewhat overwhelming. That's why the association encourages visitors to attend lectures held throughout the year to learn more about antiques and gain the confidence to make informed purchases. Of course, HADA also makes sure its vendors possess a suitable level of expertise, display plenty of enthusiasm, and regularly don a thick coat of dust.
Big Tex Tree Nurseries grows and maintains an assortment of trees and plants ready to be picked out, delivered, and plopped in soil. The knowledgeable staff helps customers find outdoor furnishings ranging from 15-gallon trees (starting at $19.99) to box trees (starting at $79.99), ideal for creating natural shade or supporting one-half of a hammock. Lawn-lovers can also accent their yards with smaller ornaments such as shrubs (starting at $1.99) and flowers (starting at $1.99). Patrons trying to decorate their yard can work with Big Tex's staff to design an aesthetically pleasing pattern, and for an additional fee (varies upon location), customers can have their purchases delivered and planted in their yard or their neighbor's pool.
