About Robert's Robert's opened in Houston in 1995. After 25 years of buying tabletop and gifts at a major department store Robert decided to open his own business. He saw a void in offering better tabletop goods with an emphasis on customer service. Robert's has become one of Texas's largest china, crystal and silver retailers and registering is a must for the most discerning brides. We look forward to you enjoying our online store and invite you to visit our store in Houston. Thank you for shopping with Robert's.
