Made in the USA: Settlement Goods to Carry All American All of the Time
The scene from Settlement Goods's weekend-only pop-up store preview.
Nothing but American-made clothing, jewelry and home goods. What a conceptual concept.
Scheduled to open in a few months, Settlement Goods will exclusively carry quality men's and women's goods by American designers ranging from Elizabeth Knight and Popo Momo to Samantha Pleet and Left Field NYC.
The shop is the brainchild of Gene Morgan (full disclosure: Morgan is a Houston Press contributor), Jenny Schlief and Alicia Redman, who plan to unveil the full-scale space at 3939 Montrose Boulevard, Suite M (next to Canopy and Dirk's Coffee) in January.
The idea for Settlement Goods is part functional, part conceptual, Morgan tells Art Attack during a pop-up preview that took place at 1513 Fairview on Saturday and Sunday.
"Houston has some good retail, but much of it lacks a concept that holds it all together," he says. "Our concept is to bring items from our country together. When you walk into our store, there should be no question the country of origin."

The merchandise that was displayed over the weekend ranged from a $1,100 oversized horsehair necklace to plain T-shirts for men by Gitman Bros. Once Settlement's Montrose spot is up and running, expect to also find large-scale items such as furniture.
Settlement Goods is scheduled to open in January at 3939 Montrose Boulevard, Suite M. Morgan, Schlief and Redman talked about throwing another preview event in December, but as of the time this post was published, nothing was set in stone.
