The grand opening party starts tonight at 5:30 pm. Lula B’s is self-labeled as “cool stuff for cool people.” We dig that description. And there’s never a better way to check that out for ourselves than at an opening party with cocktails, music, and snacks, right? Come here to find all kinds of tchotchkes. Looking for Western wear? This is a hot spot for finding inexpensive, used cowgirl boots and pearl-snap button-ups. If you’re a knick-knack collector, this paradise packs in the collectibles, retro dinnerware, vintage music, movies, and books, and an eclectic mix of jewelry and art. Decorator types will find plenty of house wares, too, with the furniture, lighting, and accessory collections. We’ll see you there, drink in hand, grooving down the aisles, looking for funky odds and ends. Tonight from 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm at 2639 Main St. at Good Latimer.
Pitiful response to the socks giveaway, guys. I know socks aren’t as impressive as, say, a bottle of perfume, but let me tell you something. I hate pink. The combination of pink and fuzzy makes me queasy, but the pink, fuzzy Karen Neuburger socks are seriously amazing. I actually wear them all the time. So here’s what’s going to happen. I want to hear which ShopTalk giveaways work and which ones don’t. First three people to email me at email@example.com with your two favorite giveaways and your two least favorite giveaways will get a pair of socks. Just kidding. You’ll get something cool from my “stash.” Unless you want a pair of these magical socks, in which case, they’ll be on their way. Ready? Go.
