Manready Mercantile was created in November of 2012 by Travis S. Weaver, a small town guy originally from Zephyr, Texas. Travis began Manready by hand-pouring candles on a stovetop in his very own apartment in Houston, Texas. He began crafting other high end goods as well, which included leather accessories, apothecary, pantry items, and more. Shortly after assembling a successful line of flagship goods, he began sourcing items of the best quality from several different brands made in the USA.

Manready Mercantile is a small business built upon values of honesty and hard work; when these two things are combined, you can't help but get quality service and amazing products. We do things differently at Manready and hope you'll come pay us a visit and see why!

The Man Behind Manready


Founder Travis S. Weaver is originally from Zephyr, a small town in West Texas. He played 6-man football, chopped firewood, worked cattle, was a welder, hauled hay, and even worked on a turkey farm. “If you wanted a vehicle and school clothes, this is what you had to do. I'm proof that if you’re willing to make sacrifices, work hard, and pay your dues, you can make it in this world on your own.”

After leaving Zephyr, Travis pursued a degree in advertising, spent time traveling, and even lived with a family in Mexico where he learned to tool leather. “I see something and I get fixated. I start envisioning ways to make things better or more marketable.” Many of Manready’s products are preexisting, but marketed to women. “We twist them, we turn them, and we make them, well, Manready.”


Start from nothing. Create something with purpose. Fight your way through it all. Stay true and earn your stripes. — Travis S. Weaver
