Don’t forget to visit Scooterville, next time you are at a Willie Nelson and Family show.  As if you could!  They have the greatest collection of Willie Nelson merchandise (cds, books, shirts, posters, pins, license plates, bandannas, hats, and so much more) than anywhere else in the world.  This data is from my own personal study, but they have unique things that you can never find anywhere on line or off line or underground.  And they always keep getting new things, too.  Word to the wise, shop before the show, or after the opening act, because Scooterville has special posters and shirts printed up for events, but they are limited in number, and they go fast.  I have been disappointed, my self, when I finally make it back to their travelling store, and the poster for that night’s event is gone.  I kick myself.

While there’s lots of places to buy Willie Nelson paraphanalia and souveniers, from Walmart to the world wide web,  “Scooterville” stands alone.  The travelling Willie Nelson Store has been following Willie Nelson and Family around for decades, and it has albums and shirts and books,hats, license plate holders, pens,  key chains, so many things you can’t get anywhere else except at a Willie Nelson show.  And you won’t find a better collection or variety of Willie Nelson cds anywhere.   So, next time you go to a show, make sure you stop by. And go early, because they usually sell out of the poster or tee shirt created for that night’s show.   Don’t wait ’til after the show.  It’s worth the wait in the long line! And say hi to Scooter and Ruthie, Francine, James, JW, Jude, and whoever else you might run in to. They are the nicest folks. 

I’m going to paraphrase, but I read story about Willie Nelson’s loyalty to those close to him, and their loyalty to him.  When Willie started getting national recognition and becoming so popular, he was approached by major marketing company who wanted to take over his merchandising.  They promised they could make more money and represent his image better.  And so the story goes, Willie said, “Where were you when we were travelling in vans and selling out of our trunks?”

I got to visit Scooterville when I went to see WN&F in Texas last week.  So many cool things!  Make sure you stop by and say hello when you get to a show, and see all the great Willie Nelson & Family merchandise.  Largest collection of unique, one-of-a-kind souveniers.    And the folks are so friendly there!

If you are headed to a Willie Nelson & Family show, make sure you stop by Scooterville, the travelling Willie Nelson merchandise store. Scooter Franks and his crew travel around the country with Willie Nelson & Family with the largest collection of Willie Nelson souveniers and music and vinyl anywhere. They always have special limited edition merchandise for each show, too, i.e., a few dozen shirts for that show, and posters. The booth is always busy, but it’s worth the wait to get your souvenier. Only place to get a new Willie Doll, too!

If you do visit them, tell them Linda sent you. I owe those guys some money.
