Meet Travis Weaver, founder of Manready Mercantile in Houston, Texas.
Weaver realized his passion to start making apothecary items and decided to follow his dream. To gain knowledge, he took classes and learned by trial and error how to make candles.
He found a location where he could manufacture in the back and have a retail store up front. He decided to sell leatherwork items, his apothecary items and vintage goods. The store has been very successful with the community because of the team’s passion for the creative movement and support for other small businesses.
Weaver holds value in things that are hand-made and unique that aren’t sold in every store. He lives by his motto, “Work hard. Live well.” He hopes that his business represents as an example of what the American Dream stands for.
At Cadillac, we celebrate those whose passion and vision have reshaped our city, our lives and our culture - including Travis Weaver’s passionate work with his local shop, Manready Mercantile.
His continuous passion makes him one of the inspiring and driving persons shaping Houston.
