I'm not an avid shopper. Lately, I usually just shop online. When I do go out,  I'm usually a  get in, get what I want, and get out kind of shopper. So, I'm just as surprised as anyone that I found a new store here in San Angelo that really captured my attention.

The 4th location of Venture No. 19 is now open at 1819 Knickerbocker in San Angelo. Fresh off their ribbon cutting ceremony on September 7th, Venture No. 19, is ready for shoppers, who seek a style that is hard to find in other stores.

Discovery is the key word.  While so many stores today seem to be clones of major chain stores, like the Gap, Marshall's and others, Venture No. 19 really carves out their own niche.   There is such a rich array of choices. They specialize in Accessories, Women's Clothing, Mayna Beaded bags, Gifts and Home items and  stylish Men's Clothing.

Finding items at Venture No. 19 that truly stand out takes the "stop and shop" concept to a whole "nother" level.  At last, here is a store that makes you want to take your time.  It is truly a shopper's paradise. Perhaps the best way to showcase exactly what we mean is to show off some of the more unique items you can find there.

We are especially drawn to the whimsical, yet intricate designs of the Mayna beaded bag collection. Here is where airy Butterflies meet Cheetah Beaded bags.  You don't know whether to purr or lightly fly across the sales floor.   Truly, such contrasts are a hallmark of a well-balanced sense of style.

Another example of how Venture No. 19 is ahead of the curve is their incredible selection of men's socks. Socks are the new shoes. In years past, people dumped a lot of money into their Nikes, Adidas, Airforce Ones or Jordans. They still do, but that is no longer enough.  Fashionistas of today are discovering fashion forward socks.

You have to see some these. There are men's "Cup A Soup Socks", men's "Get Your Kicks Socks" and a personal favorite the "Real Men (Love Cats)" Socks. Your feet will never be more fashionable.
