Witches Ball, one of the hottest (and sold
out) tickets in town, autumn has brought
to the Witchery a recent offering of
calendars, annuals, and planners in early
preparation for the New Year.
The store is also an active participant
of every ArtWalk, hosts psychic readings
every weekend, and regularly holds
educational events, author lectures, and
classes. Visit www.WitcheryOnline.com to
keep up to date on their latest events.
Tina’s on the Strand
2326 Strand | 409.762.6816
Sunday-Thursday 10am-6pm;
Friday & Saturday 10am-9pm
Since 2006, this upscale Strand boutique
has been a favorite of both locals and
visitors with its enticing and elegant array
of casual women’s clothing, jewelry,
accessories, skin care, and home décor.
Four times a year, the store’s inventory
is revamped with the latest seasonal
fashions, and this fall is no exception.
New fall arrivals include clothing from
some of Tina’s most prestigious brands,
including LIOR, Clara Sun Woo, and
Johnny Was, which are joined by the
newest designs from both the Mary
Frances line of handbags and the Simon
Sebbag line of sterling silver jewelry from
Israel.
Also noted for providing specialty home
décor for every season, the Halloween
spirit has officially descended upon the
store this month with adorably festive
decorations that cannot be found
anywhere else on the Island.
With a remarkably gracious and friendly
staff that is knowledgeable and ready
to assist shoppers with the intricacies of
their inventory, an experience at Tina’s
is an exceptional example of Galveston
retail at its finest.
Tom’s Thumb Nursery
and Landscaping
2014 45th Street | 409.763.4713
Monday-Saturday 9am-5:30pm;
Sunday 10am-4pm
Much more than a plant store, family-
owned Tom’s Thumb Nursery has
grown from offering only plants, garden
products, and landscaping services, to a
full-range boutique that carries specialty
items, gifts, coastal themed décor, and
high-quality outdoor furniture. This
boutique sits adjacent to a fairyland
of flora, complete with pathways that
weave through an enormous variety
of geographically appropriate plants,
flowers, trees, and vegetables.
Fresh in for the season, Tom Thumb is
well-stocked with fall flowers and starter
plants for winter vegetables. Inside, the
displays are sectioned off with areas that
feature hauntingly festive Halloween
decorations next to autumn sundries in
their quintessential shades of red, brown,
orange, and yellow. However, Tom and
his thumb do not revel too long in the
trappings of fall, as their annual Christmas
Open House, complete with door prizes
and refreshments, is scheduled for
October 21.
experience.
Most recently, the Style Co. added a new
rack dedicated to upscale casual pieces,
such as cocktail ensembles and LBDs
(Little Black Dresses). Island fashion is
typically presented as almost exclusively
casual, but this created a rather dire need
for a local boutique to provide clothing
that was appropriate for a bit more
formal occasions. Style Co. answered
the call.
The shop also features jewelry crafted
by local artisans, handmade jewelry
from Bali, a line of vintage book-themed
t-shirts and handbags, and a line of
homemade candles from Missouri called
Pick Wick, whose highly concentrated and
long-lasting scents will soon be available
in limited edition, seasonal varieties for
fall and winter.
The Witchery
2116 Postoffice Street | 409.515.0669
Tuesday-Friday 11am-6pm; Saturday 11am-7pm;
Sunday 12pm-6pm; closed Monday
Owners Clyde and Kimberley Wood are
the “purveyors of fine esoteric goods”
within the confines of downtown’s
most mystic and magical destination. A
transcendent atmosphere opens up a
portal into an unrivaled retail collection
that includes among its treasures fine
jewelry and an extensive library of
educational literature, as well as crystals,
candles, statuettes, and keepsakes.
Although the shop did take on water
from the alley during Harvey, a dedicated
group of employees and volunteers had
it cleaned up and up and running within
days.
In addition to this month’s upcoming
