I walked in to Oak Cliff’s Bishop Street Market with a fellow coworker–after eating delicious soup at Hattie’s, yum!—expecting to do a little hands-off shopping (read: no buying), but couldn’t help myself when I started looking around. The Market carries so many of my favorite body lines it was overwhelming: Thymes, Niven Mordan, Caldrea, and more. There are all kinds of fun home accessories and gift ideas, too. I walked away the “I Can’t Sleep Journal” from Knock Knock for recording restless nights, two Archipelago votives in the sultry Havana scent with notes of bergamot, tobacco leaf, and ylang ylang, and a couple fabulous cards; one glittery one with Marie Antoinette sporting a birthday cake in her hair, and another—one of the funniest cards I’ve ever seen—which I’ve featured left. (The inside reads, “Seriously, I don’t even know where we keep the salad dressing.”) The damage? $31.34. Not bad.
