If you’ve been caught on N. Western Avenue during rush hour recently, you’ve likely had plenty of time in bumper-to-bumper traffic to survey your surroundings. Next time, take note of a new shop called Take-out Treasures (4335 N. Western; 408-6386).
From the window, one might surmise it’s a regular gift shop, with its display donning red-, white- and pink-heart-shaped everything. One would be wrong.
The store is much bigger than it looks at first glance, and chock-full of purses, hats, scarves, drinking accoutrement (toppers, openers, flasks) and a substantial stock of jewelry in every color imaginable, especially Thunder colors.
If your search is for the extraordinary, try Dwelling Spaces OKC (25 N.W. Ninth; 208-4455), housed inside The Womb Gallery. It welcomes shoppers with a disco ball and offers a variety of fun, Oklahoma-centric products.
Pick up a flannel shirt that has been hand-altered and tweaked to align with current styles, or pick up adorable, Thunder-themed baby onesies.
As Valentine’s Day approaches, consider out-of-the-box gifts like a painting from Daniel Sutliff or a pink Valentine’s robot, both available there.
Speaking of spaces to dwell, Perch’d (14 N.W. Ninth; 494-0419) is among the newest and most unique shopping experiences to hit OKC.
One of the first things you’ll notice is that it is, in fact, a metal shipping container. It’s been painted and spruced and turned into something thoroughly modern.
On the inside, you’ll be met with a breath of fresh air by way of innovative products.
For example, ever feel like you need a hand? At Perch’d, pick up a wall hook in the shape of a hand. You also can grab a sleek light fixture or modern decorative pillows to add that special touch to your home.
Whether you’re searching for a Valentine’s Day treat or a quirky, uniquely local gift or you simply want to liven up your space, you’ll find what you need. Let’s shop, OKC!
