Local Event: Girl Crush 2017 Holiday Market

Posted by Myth & Symbol Team on

The Girl Crush Holiday Market is back on Saturday, November 4th & the new & bigger location at Space HTX has allowed for a new & bigger all-girl cast of artists, makers & local shops. The impressive lineup covers everything from womens-wear, knit-wear, vintage, kids, bags, ceramics, home goods, apothecary, food, party supplies, mens accessories, prints, & even floral arrangements & flower crowns!

There will be a free DIY station, complimentary face painting for the kiddos & an interactive photo booth. Come early because the first 100 guests receive a goodie bag (with something something special inside from us). As with each Girl Crush market, donations of diapers, tampons & pads are greatly appreciated & will be gifted to the Houston Area Women's Center. These necessities are unfortunately exempt from government aide programs & the center has been resiliently assisting women & children in Houston for the past 35 years.

Due to space limitations, we won't be able to take all our inventory with us. If there's something that you are interested in seeing in person, please email us so that we make sure to bring it to the market. There will be a dressing room for you to try on apparel.

For additional details, check out the Girl Crush website here or the event page here.

Hope to see you there!

15% Of Sales To Hurricane Harvey Relief

Posted by Myth & Symbol Team on

Thank you to everyone who reached out to us! We feel fortunate to be safe, but our heart is hurting for Houston and the surrounding areas affected by Hurricane Harvey. In its wake, we have witnessed countless acts of kindness big and small that have united the city. We feel very blessed to be part of such a richly diverse community. If you would like to help with recovery efforts, we encourage you to check out Preparing for Action and Sketch City for opportunities to volunteer and donate.

We will be donating 15% of all sales this Labor Day weekend (Friday, September 1st through Monday, September 4th) to the Texas Diaper Bank. Diapers are not provided by disaster relief agencies or even by any federal aid programs, and with little ones of our own, we especially know how essential they are.

The M&S Team

P.S. Please be aware that the United States Postal Service is still running on limited resources & some facilities have been temporarily suspended. Our local post office is now accepting outgoing mail but orders may take longer than usual to arrive. Express orders will still be given priority & will not be effected. We apologize for the delays & thank you for understanding as our city tries to recover.

  2. Type in your order info.
  3. Select your requested item(s).
  4. A pre-paid shipping label will be emailed to you.

    Be on the lookout for more new features!

    A New Chapter for Myth & Symbol

    Posted by Myth & Symbol Team on


    In 2012, Myth & Symbol opened its doors in the Rice Village. Houston didn’t have many independent shops that favored emerging designers and artists who prized craftsmanship over mass-market production. We hoped to help fill that void. 

    Over the past five years of hosting workshops, exhibitions, charity events, and collaborating with other shops, designers, and area businesses, we’ve created a wonderful community together. Myth & Symbol has gifted us the opportunity to meet so many people, many of whom now are our closest friends. And there are so many of you across the world that we have befriended online—and who, if you passed through Houston, were lucky to meet face to face.

    Our lives have recently and radically changed—for the better. Chau’s son Bennett arrived last August and Trang will welcome her son this June! With our families expanding and our needs outgrowing our current space, we have decided to move the store totally online for now.

    This is a new chapter for us. Our Rice Village shop will officially shut its doors on May 21st but we will stay open on the web. This gives us the breathing room to operate while we adjust to new-parenthood and brainstorm about the future. During this time, we plan to keep participating in pop-ups and opportunities around Houston. We’ll also be keeping our eyes peeled for new digs, a place that feels right.

    We thank you all for your generous support. We’re overbrimming with gratitude. You’ve brought our vision to life. Five years later and we are still constantly honored and humbled that we are—and, we hope, will remain—your shopping destination.

    Please stop by and say hello in the coming weeks!

    FAQ For Our In-Store Customers

    Can I still use my gift card online?
    Yes, if you have a gift card with an open balance, please bring your gift card to the shop before May 21st. We will transfer the amount to an e-gift card which can be redeemed online. You can also email us anytime with your gift card info.

    Can I still use my store credit?
    Your in-store credit will be transferred online after May 21st. Because a contact info is required for all return transactions, we do have a record of all remaining in-store credit. You will be notified via email if there is any remaining store credit left in your account after May 21st. Like gift cards, store credit never expires.

    What if I need to return an in-store purchase?
    All in-store items purchased before April 30th are subject to our regular return policy. Please refer to our return policy here. All in-store purchases after May 1st will be final sale & non-returnable. There will be no changes to the online return policy.

    Will you still offer Postmates Same Day Delivery?
    Yes, this shipping option will still be available for orders with Houston delivery addresses. We started offering the service this year & it is a great shipping option if you need an item immediately. A Postmates driver will pick up & drop off your purchase within 2-3 hours of your order submission. The rates are reasonable & usually range between $6-$12 (depending on your destination & order total).

    Will you still participate in local pop-ups & markets?
    Yes! Now that we will not have a brick & mortar location, we hope to participate in a lot more markets. Please make sure that you are subscribed to our In-Store Events email list as we will transition that category to our "Local Events" email list.

    Will you be selling your furniture & fixtures?
    Yes! Stop by the shop to check out the items for sale. We will also slowly post photos of available items on our Facebook page in the upcoming days here.

    Please email us at if you have additional questions.
