The last two weeks of April are absolutely insane at my job. . . and working extra hours means losing blogging hours.
However, I wanted to pop in and share a beautiful shop that I fell head over heels in love with during my trip to Dallas in March. After my trip to Blissdom, my blog friend Katie and I spent the day exploring the Bishop Arts District of Oak Cliff, an “up and coming” area with just a few blocks overflowing with indie-business awesomeness.
My favorite of them all was Society, a home decor and candle company that is owned by a small interior design company. Their shop only opened a few months ago, so the website isn’t up yet, but for now you can find them on Facebook.
The tiny shop is a great lesson in going “up” the walls when you don’t have a lot of horizontal space to work with!
The “number” candles are their very own line of lifelike scents, handmade in Dallas.
I was excited to discover them carrying my favorite brand of Virginia-made candles, Sydney Hale.
The decor and display that was squeezed artfully into the super small shop just amazed me. I especially loved the galvanized steel shelving.
If you’re in the Dallas area, I highly recommend visiting the Bishop Arts District, but don’t rely on public transportation, because the train doesn’t go there. Yet. It appears that it’s not very safe to wander beyond the gentrified blocks. I am puzzled that the businesses were revitalized into a very hip, very bustling mini-district, while the surrounding neighborhood appears to still be in decay.
If you’re familiar with the area, I’d love to hear your thoughts on it!
