In April my husband of a whole year (go team Cargill) and I decided to spend our 1 year anniversary in a stay-cation here in Dallas. We have visited Dallas’ many districts like the Music District and Design District more times than we can count.While taking a rather lengthy bus ride to Bishop Arts District, I found a beautiful, somewhat hidden, gem called All Good Things on West Davis Street.
why we chose bishop arts district for our stay-cation
We decided on Bishop Arts District because we don’t have thousands of dollars to devote to an actual get-a-way vacation. So for our 1 year anniversary, I made it my mission to find undiscovered areas of Dallas. We scored a newlywed upgrade at Le Meridien Dallas hotel in Uptown when my hubby and I ventured Deep Ellum, Harwood District and West End. We are art and music lovers and love to roam the streets of local shops and buy from local vendors.
At the time, I really needed to locate a jewelry store because the back of my earring popped off. God only knows where it is in the world. I feel completely naked without earrings, I searched for a jewelry store with a reasonable price point. I received a tip that Bishop Arts District is stock full of jewelry and clothing shops!
the best hidden jewelry shop at bishop arts district
Bishop Arts is home to outdoor vendors surrounded by bars and restaurants meant for the ultimate foodie. All Good Things was the first store I saw while hopping off the 029 bus. Looking at this quaint stationary and gift store right off the curb, I was immediately reminded of Anthropologie. Fixed with whimsical planners, desktop organizers, handbags and jewelry, jewelry, jewelry! Right at home in the eclectic neighborhood of Bishop Arts District, the shop offers a curated collection of letter pressed cards, desk accessories and custom stationery. I fixed my eyes on the not-too-fussy greeting card display cases, hanging pottery, and desk nameplates that read Girl Boss and Mr. Wonderful.
My husband stayed faithfully by my side as I walked the store, making sure I saw every trinket at least once. I landed on 2 cute items that were unique enough not to be found anywhere else. I left with a pair of gold double drop earrings and a Celfie Vase in chocolate. The small vase will take on the duty of holding my makeup brushes.
I was pleasantly surprised to find women’s and men’s bath and beauty products. I tried to get my husband to purchase some skincare and body wash products but he is the type of guy that “ain’t into that…”
