About Us

        The Silk Purse Market is a daughter/mother partnership that blossomed from an addiction to estate sales and a love of stuff from the past.  As a result of our very different interests and styles, as well as input from our husbands, children and friends, our inventory is wonderfully eclectic.  Our small shop, our homes, and several storage facilities are bursting at the seams with antiques, vintage items, collectibles and unique gift ideas.   


        We have antique furniture, vintage glassware and a wide variety of unique pieces from the past.  We have collectibles of all sorts: baseball cards, Pokémon, vinyl albums, license plates, dolls, toys, kitchenware, and the list goes on.  We have locally made soaps, candles, ceramics, notebooks and cards.  And, since we take our name from the old Scottish proverb, “You can’t make a silk purse out of a pig’s ear”, we have plenty of pig’s ears, too…vintage furniture and household items that are just waiting for a creative soul to make them useful again.  We are the local distributor for Fusion Mineral Paint, so we can help you with a top-notch paint, as well.


        We are located in Sour Lake, a small town about 10 miles west of Beaumont on Texas Hwy 105 and would love to visit with you.
