“Gypsy Daze” is a new shop opening in the Montrose District of Houston. From concept to fruition, Gypsy Daze is the brain child of two local Houston women with a vision to have a forum displaying beautiful and affordable clothing, jewelry, accessories, artwork, and more made only by designers and artists local to the Greater Houston area.
Karen Siragusa and Brooke Statham of Houston are two local woman who design and make their own clothing and accessories. These women decided to take their vision to the next level, in the process becoming entrepreneurs, and creating a place where local artisans can display their wares and the community of Houston has a place to shop in a truly 100% locally owned and operated business. Karen comments on the progress they’ve made in such a short time, “When we originally discussed the concept it seemed impossible that within just two months we’d be opening! The support we’ve received from all of our designers, artists and crafts people as well as our neighbors and people from all over Houston has been overwhelming and extremely encouraging. We are very excited and grateful for the strong and community oriented people that are helping take Gypsy Daze from a vision in our imaginations to a real place where we can come together and share.”
Gypsy Daze is located at 2414 Taft Street, Houston, Texas 77006. Situated right across from the oldest and noblest antiques store in the area, Reeves Antiques, just next to TNT t-shirts and around the corner from Boheme, it seems Gypsy Daze is soon to become a local hot-spot. The shop is opening on October 3, 2009 with their “Hello Houston!” party. This all day event starts at 7am and ends at 9pm. This celebration is not only for the grand opening of Gypsy Daze but also for their brother store Dark Matter Books which is located right next door at 2412 Taft. The event features the debut of Gypsy Daze and shop tours, live music by the James Reese Band and other local musicians, Bar-B-Que, lemonade &coffee, hula hoops, arts &crafts tables in the backyard, and fun of all sorts. There is no cover charge to this event, and it is BYOB.
Normal Hours of operation for Gypsy Daze will be Monday through Friday from 12 noon to 9pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 6pm. One will be able to drop by the shop anytime during normal business hours to find the doors wide open, lemonade and coffee complimentary and a truly amazing selection of the finest clothing, jewelry, accessories, bags, artwork and more by incredibly talented local Houston designers and crafts persons. Gypsy Daze is depending on the Houston community to support each other in this venture.
It seems there is a new and interesting place to check out unique items and visit with Houston locals making a difference in their lives and others.
