If you love hand-crafted gifts or simply a beautiful shop to be inspired by, you'll adore Oolala . Oolala changes everyday and always offers new local artists displaying creations from jewelery, to handmade bags, garments, baby gifts galore, photographs, vintage linens, glass art, hand-cured soaps, the latest Webkinzs and lovely surprises daily. And now for the great part....everything is priced soooo reasonably! My-kinda-place.... I've bought the most unique jewelery and handstitched children's clothes made by the owner and her mother. When I need a gift and want to stay in the neighborhood, this is it. However, I can be "in a hurry" and ultimately spend over an hour browsing each trip. There must be 50 different local artists and it changes constantly. Prices range from $4 for this vintage tatted linen i had to have... to these fab bags made from retro album cover and 'that's why they call me..bmp bmp. ...BAD COMPANY and the inside! I want this for Christmas Honey! Just a beautiful store... Wondering through Oolala is EXCELLENT retail therapy baby! She always as a fresh arrangement of the most gorgeous bags!The owner is an incredible seamstress and in collaboration with her mother, they make the most beautifully unique garments, quilts and seriously cute, one of a kind baby gifts...
She's always looking for exceptionally gifted artists to share their work! And did i mention, connected to Oolala is Kaboom Books? Kaboom Books relocated to H-Town from New Orleans French Quarter and I've found the BEST art books at the lowest prices here. If you ever come to Houston, Oolala and Kaboom are MUST shopping stops!
