Somewhat of a mis-sight on my part in not giving a little background on the Thompson Antique Center of Texas. Several decades ago, the future doyenne of antiques in Houston, Carolyn Thompson, founded and established the "Carolyn Thompson's Antique Center of Texas", located on Old Katy Road near the 610-290 Hwys in close-in west Houston. Hailed as "Texas' Largest", there was little arguability. An instant success, it
progressed merrily along it's way. Eventually the city of Houston grew in population enough that highways
needed to be enlarged and adjusted. The Texas Dept of Transportation (TXDOT) deemed in it's wisdom that
the land on witch Carolyn's Center existed was needed for their use. Fortunately, Carolyn Thompson's demise preceded the finality of the process. Purchase by eminent domain forced the re-location of the "Antique Center". Carolyn's son Phillip (wife Rebecca) and daughter Kathy Zingergy negotiated a move about a mile north on Post Oak to the west end of Northwest Mall, located immediately west of 610 and between Hempstead Hwy and 18th st Renamed the "Thompson's Antique Center of Texas", the "Antique Center" continues to grow in both dearer count and quality of merchandise offerings. Get your act together and visit what's STILL the
largest antique center in Texas, and perhaps this part of the country!
