Shopping & Specialty Retail
Five Star Shopping....
If you think you have to stick to the big cities to experience the state’s best dining, shopping, and culture, then you don’t get out enough. From fine art on the streets of Nugent Ave. and fresh farm fare at Hye Market to a glimmering swimming hole on the Pedernales, there’s a multitude of sophisticated surprises to be found in even the smallest towns.
While Seth Stidham carves, tools, and sews custom belts, wallets, purses, catchalls, and other works of leather art in his workshop, his other half, Jasmin Arpin, stocks the retail side of their enterprise with apparel, jewelry, and home goods from like-minded indie brands. (Meanwhile, Pearl, the sweet shop dog, dutifully poses for social-media snaps.)
