From Our Editors
A potpourri of flower arrangements and interior decorations elicit cheery exclamations, which drift to the ears of patrons crowded before The Owl's Nest’s café-style lunch fare. Customers gather personalized bouquets or test out sweet-scented jar candles by burning floppy discs from estranged computers in them beneath the cubist spread of the shop’s array of frames. Against the baritone burble of cauldrons of soup, custom T-shirts definitively end debates about who is the greatest grandpa. Boutique apparel from designers such as Bella Taylor informs the world of the wearer's fashion sense, and ornaments and home accents from lines such as Willow Tree beg to add endearing flourishes to domiciles.
