Hidden Gems: East Dallas

Every day we have a choice. We can support an up and coming podcaster, try a new family-run restaurant, join a boutique gym started by a local fitness champ or we could keep giving away our money to the handful of giants who already control so much of our commerce. Our daily decisions impact the kind world we live in; if we want a world where small businesses are growing and artists and creatives are thriving then we should support them with our time, money and attention. We’re proud to highlight inspiring creatives and entrepreneurs each week in Hidden Gems series.  Check out some of East Dallas’ gems below.

We are designers by trade. We met at the office and found we shared a mutual love of fashion and styling. We had been dreaming of owning our own boutiques and decided to take the leap together.
