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.
Scooterville didn’t disappoint, they had so many new cool shirts and hoodies and mugs, and all our favorite Willie Nelson souveniers and paraphanalia. I love this shirt; comes in spring green and spring yellow. The artist who did this, Jay from Austin, (sorry don’t know his full name) does such a great job. Back of shirt says, “Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die”
I hooked up with Scooter, Ruthie, JR, in Phoenix, and it was so fun to hang out and catch up. Stop by and see them when you are at a show. Buy a Willie Doll; you’ll thank me later. They have things that you can only get at a Willie Nelson concert, from their travelling merchandise stand.
Scooter Franks and his family and crew brings his travelling store to every Willie Nelson & Family concert, with the best selection of Willie Nelson merchandise available anywhere — shirts, posters, key chains, pins, buttons, cds, vinyl, bandannas, books, dvds, coozies, cups, hats, license plate holders, I can’t even think of all the cool stuff they have.
Each show has special event show items , a limited number of shirts and posters for that show — get yours early if you go; they do sell out. It’s always fun to see what’s new. They don’t have a website — only place to purchase it is at shows, so stop by and say hello when you visit a show. Word to the wise, go to their booth before the show.
Oh, and Willie Dolls! Scooterville is your source for the Willie Nelson dolls

Don’t forget to stop by Scooterville the next time you get to go to a Willie Nelson & Family Show. The Frank Brothers and their efficiently friendly staff travel the country with Willie Nelson & Family and sell one-of-a-kind Willie Nelson souveniers. You can’t get them anywhere else. Sometimes I hear people say, “I’m going to go on line later and get one” and I tell them, “Oh, no, these are not available on the world wide web or anywhere — just at Willie’s shows.” Shirts, posters, bandannas, are created unique to each event, and they become collectables the minute you leave the venue that night.
