We have lived in the Texas Hill Country for over twenty years, enjoying the history, people and places and putting down roots for our families. We have always been inspired and drawn to the connection with the stories of the past through the old and unexpected treasures that we find at Estate sales, shops, markets and stranger’s attics.
After years of collecting and cultivating, and with the launch of our children, it was time to start having fun with a new direction in our love of all things “aged”. After finding this uncommon historic industrial building and surrounding architectural buildings and land, we sold our successful vintage rental business and poured our hearts into our little piece of Comfort, Texas.
We began the process of finding the “bones” of the building in December 2015, and delightedly opened the doors for business in May 2016. The people and businesses of Comfort have given us such a warm welcome and we are eager to follow our dreams for the buildings, land and opportunities to serve our clients in new and exciting ways.
Robin Morgan – Owner
I’ve been in the Texas Hill Country for a little over 20 years and I have been blessed to raise four beautiful children in a great community. My life has drastically changed in the past year because of the birth of my first grandbaby, Malachi. Owning my own business gives me the freedom to escape to Lubbock and visit him on a whim. We are thrilled to be in Comfort and look forward to doing life with the community here.
Sherrie Klein – Owner
I was raised in “small town Texas” and my husband Howard and I decided to raise our three children in another little town just down the road from Comfort called Boerne, Texas. Now that our children have families of their own, I have time again to pursue my passion for repurposing the unusual and incorporating pieces with character and history in design both inside and outside the home. I am thrilled to be a part of the space and the community that make up The 8th Street Market.
Dustin Morgan – Owner
I have called Boerne and the Hill Country home for 21 years. I am a part-owner of the 8th street Market with my mother, Robin Morgan and business partner and long time family friend, Sherrie Klein. Along with 8th street, I work for my dad’s ministry and have a radio rental business as well. In my free time I enjoy playing soccer with my friends and fishing the creeks and ponds of the hill country.
Originally from Alabama but as they say “she got to Texas as soon as she could” at 2 months old! Raised in San Antonio she had always loved the Hill Country and spending as much time shopping for antiques and what some people might call “junk” as much as possible. She attended Baylor University where she studied Fashion Merchandising for a few years then moved and traveled all the South before finally returning back to Texas to be closer to her family.
My name is Trey Jones and I’m 21 years old. I was born in Abilene, Texas and have lived in Boerne for the past 17 years. I love hunting and fishing and I’m a lifelong soccer player and fan. I am currently pursuing an associate degree in Fire Science and EMS from Blinn College and I hope to one day work as a first responder here in Texas. I work at the cash register and as an all around handy-man for the 8th Street Market. I am thrilled to be working with a great group of people and I hope to see you soon!
