Great little shopping experience! 10/10/2010

Old Town Spring is a cool place to walk outside and enjoy the wonderful fall weather, and find some unique shopping experiences along the way! I loved browsing around the little shops. Some of them are a little pricey, like you'd find in any shopping area or mall, but most are reasonable and run by friendly helpful people. The guy with the comments about a dirty, smelly town obviously hasn't been there very often. It's usually clean and beautiful. I love it during Christmas when they have the whole town lit up with lights and carrolers and bands playing music on weekends. I found the best little engraving shop called Akulazik hidden in one corner of the town, and a great restaraunt by the tracks called Wunsche Bro.'s. I love this little town. You should go see it. more

Come see for yourself 11/2/2009

Old Town Spring is a well thought out, unique destination in North Houston. It 's an old railroad town which was rescued from disappearing about thirty years ago. Spring has allowed people to start small businesses and succeed plus given Houston a place unique in it's various stores and the festivals it sponsors each year. A large historical organization works tirelessly to bring improvements ,keep property values high and visitors interested in visiting. Come see for yourself the magic of Old Town Spring. Pros: unique shope, festivals,easy to get to Cons: Very busy during festivals more

Dirtiest Place on earth 8/14/2009

Disgusting garbage refuse, people urinate and heave for two weekends every year-on every part of the town during Crawfish. No one spends a nickle to pressure wash or clean the area up. Gross is not the word.\r \r The hallmark of this town is that they invented swine flu. If you really want to be impressed search the 68 registered predators in the town zip code 77373.\r \r Pros: One Less Place to Spend Money At Cons: Dirty as all Heck more

So much FUN!!! 3/23/2009

This is a fun place to go if you love to shop but are in the mood for something on a smaller scale. We love to take our kids here and have a girl's day out. We love to walk around, grab an ice cream from Puffabelly's and window shop on days when money is tight. It's just so quaint and most of the vendors are very friendly. Pros: Fun and quaint Cons: alot of walking more

Tacky, over-priced and shabby 12/22/2008

Don't be lured in by the claims of historical significance, this tacky conglomeration of stores are over-priced and mainly sell products made in China. Pros: Good for presents for people you don't like Cons: Tacky, over priced, shabby more

Excellent Place to Visit a few times a year 1/9/2008

As a shopper who visits Old Town Spring seasonally and for many years .. I felt I had to leave an adequate review so people knew TRULY what this town is about.\r This is a wonderful place to visit and do a little shopping and lunch on a season basis. For example Spring brings the bright colors and easter/valentines type merchandise out. And while I agree with the one of you that left the review that SOME of the shops are over priced.. I have to say unless you have been out to Old Town Spring this year that is NOT entirely true anymore. MOST of the shop have better prices and the variety of shop themes/merchandise is much different now...Country decor people.. try Apple Annie's(and don't forget to pick up one of their authentic caramel/chocolate covered apples), or try for more gifty items..CharCheri and the Cottage. Home Decor and Accessories? Try A Little Something Different they are VERY reasonably priced! Also try Teapots and Lollipops, Libby Lulu's J&B Collectibles, the best pet store is Haute Dogs and to eat.. well my fave is the newly renovated Bluebonnet Cafe! And if they are too busy try the British Tea Room. And for something sweet DEFINITELY get your Funnel Cake!!\r Old town spring is truly a wonderful experience and has changed Drastically in the past few years for the BETTER! I hope this helps some of you and I apprecaite the read!\r Pros: Experience, Funnel Cakes, Shopping Cons: ONLY on some weekends and Holidays is the parking more

Avoid Ellen's Cafe 4/10/2007

The shopping at Old Town Spring was delightful. Our dining experenience was not. The staff was rude. The food was mediocre. Chicken salad was dry and the chicken noodle soup was all broth. Will go again, but not to Ellen's. more

A Must See at Christmas! Step back in time! 11/29/2005

Old Town Spring is like stepping back in time at Christmas. The sounds, smells and the twinkling lights at night especially are beautiful! Some shops have extended hours during the holiday season. This is a leisurely shopping experience. Antiques are a bit scarce, but unique items with old world charm are available! If you want bargains - go to Walmart. Parking may be a challenge during peak times but can be worked around. Well worth the time. Not a place for small children as shops tend to be a bit tight and quaint. Totally boring for children unless you like being tortured while you shop! Pros: festive, colorful, unique Cons: parking, bargains more

Go only at Christmas 5/1/2003

There are some excellent shops, but parking is a problem, and crowds can ruin the experience. Some shops are dramatically over-priced, and overall, the experience is not very good except at christmas time. There should be a law requiring that everyone visit Olde towne spring at Christmas Pros: Unique, Variety, Quality Cons: Traffic, Parking, Value more
