The Texas Boot Company in historic Bastrop—just an hour’s drive from Austin--plans to celebrate Texas Independence Day in true cowboy fashion, outfitting visitors from near and far and preparing rodeo enthusiasts for their favorite time of year. The Texas Boot Company will have margaritas, Lone Star Beer, and traditional Texas appetizers and desserts for customers that visit the store on Sunday, March 2, 2014. They will also give away two tickets to the upcoming Austin rodeo as well as offer $50 off any boot made in Texas on March 2, 2014.
“Our deeply rooted love for Texas inspired our dream for The Texas Boot Company,” Marc Conselman, owner of The Texas Boot Company, said. “From head to toe, we’re all Texan. Whether you live around the corner or six states away, we want everyone who walks through our doors to leave feeling like they experienced our great Texas culture.”
On any day, customers can find horse and cattle trailers out front and spurs clinking in the aisles—a testament to the authenticity among ‘real cowboys’. Even if roping cattle is not your day job, you’ll still feel at home since The Texas Boot Company carries one of the largest collections of boots in the world, from brands like Lucchese, Old Gringo, Corral, Ariat, and Anderson Bean. Many of the boots on the shelf were designed by Conselman, who takes great pride in offering a unique selection of boots from a wide variety of exotic leathers.
Founded in 2010 by husband and wife duo, Marc and Shelly Conselman, The Texas Boot Company is located off Highway 71 at 733 Old Austin Highway It’s open seven days a week in Bastrop, a city with natural beauty in the “heart of the lost pines” on the banks of the Colorado River.
Other attractions include taxidermied animals, Western artifacts such as original buckboard wagon serves, and calf roping machine lessons--perfect entertainment for true-minded Texans.
