Manready Mercantile was officially created in November of 2012 by Travis S. Weaver, a small town guy originally from Zephyr, Texas. Manready Mercantile is a small business built upon values of honesty and hard work...that's just how we do things. You combine these two traits together and you can't help but get quality service and products. We do things differently at Manready Mercantile and hope you'll come pay us a visit and see why!

Travis started by making candles on a stovetop in his apartment to prove that you don't need a handout or to grow up with a silver spoon in your mouth to start a successful business. The initial business was named Manready Mercantile and was sold through and to retailers across the U.S. The focus was on apothecary goods, with everything made in small batches, right here in Houston, Texas. Most of the goods are unisex, but great for men...that's the twist. In the past, many of these items were never purchased by men or for men. We felt that by revamping the packaging and branding, we could change that...which is exactly what happened.

We've come a long way in such a short timeframe and are proud to be expanding. Manready thrives on offering high-quality goods for patrons and we carry over 100 made in the USA vendors and select brands from around the world. Our little shop in Houston has become the ultimate general goods store with unique offerings unlike no other that you'll find in the world!

On March 28th, 2014, we opened our flagship store, located at 321 W 19th Street in the Historic Heights neighborhood of Houston, Texas. Come see us Tuesday through Saturday 10am-7pm & Sunday 11am-6pm!

Here are some pictures of the shop in action:
