So, the other day we were walking down Cedar Springs after “sampling” cocktails at every bar along the strip. You know, research in the name of science. And keeping in-the-know.
As we trekked to Walgreen’s for our pre-hangover remedy of Yoo-hoo, baby aspirin and Bugles, we stopped to gaze through the windows of NUVO, one of our preferred gayborhood shopping haunts.
The next day (in actual daylight) we popped in to see Donna Lanier, one of our favorite reasons to shop at NUVO. If you need a gift, just let her know your budget and the occasion and she’ll find exactly what you need. Or just let her show you around. She’ll inevitably introduce you to something you can’t live without.
As usual, there’s some great new merchandise, including wonderfully unusual masculine jewelry from Leah Gormly and pretty pieces of etched glass from Polly Gessell, both Dallas-based artists. Fantastic lamps, frames, barware and other decorative accessories are always unique, exquisitely crafted and for the most part, very affordable.
NUVO’s selection of Acme Studio pens is always extensive and it’s hard not to walk out with a new one on every visit. (Yes, we have a pen fetish.)
Of course, NUVO is well known for its extraordinary lines of bath products, as well as a spectacular collection of greeting cards, from elegant and sophisticated to off-the-wall and bitingly hilarious.
So next time you’re down Cedar Springs way, whether it’s your first or five-thousandth visit to NUVO, stop in and say hello to Donna. And re-discover one of the city’s best places to shop.
