“Strange and Wonderful”
Review of Prada Marfa

Prada Marfa
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The sculpture is in Valentine, Texas on a highway in nowhere. It's interesting to see. It's starting to show signs of age and deterioration. The land around the store is beautiful. The fence is covered in locks and graffiti. Dust will blow in your eyes! This was a must see for me, but might not be as interesting if you aren't into rt.

Horizon after horizon on this desert road you will see plenty of nothing... maybe a litter barrel sign or two. Finally you happen upon this little slice of strange in the middle of nowhere. Why someone would not stop is a mystery to me. There is really nothing to it. It is a small fake facade that's good for a few pictures, but it's an incredibly unique thing in the middle of nowhere. Another point of interest a few miles farther south is a tethered blimp run by the military for unknown reasons. That makes for a pair of strange sights before you go back to nothing.

We knew about this Prada Store but did not expect to see it on our trip. As we drove by, we knew exactly what it was and hit the brakes. I loved it - lots of other people stopping as well which added to the fun. It was in very good condition - no vandalism - just a little dust on the windows. Don't miss the locks on the fence out back.

This is a fun little place to stop by if you are passing near it. It’s not really worth it to go out of your way for, but neat to see. There is a small fence behind it that people have started adding locks to so I recommend bringing a lock and a sharpie.
