I am completely in love with all the cool things happening along N.W. 23rd Street, partly because it can only help my Paseo-area home's value, and partly because it's simply great to see positive things happening in that area of town.
Just check out this postcard from the shopping district's heyday (courtesy of the Rick & Liz Ferris collection):
A friend from Retro Metro OKC
(a really great group of people preserving and promoting OKC's past) sent me that picture a while ago. Pretty cool, right?
And now we can add another new shop to the growing list that is working to revitalize the street. Oklahoma City University has opened OCU BLUEtique
, an upscale resale shop. The store (1933 N.W. 23rd) just opened Monday in a renovated home right by the campus.
BLUEtique will stock housewares, decor, accessories and other odds 'n' ends. It's staffed entirely by volunteers, students and alumni, and the money made will go toward student employment scholarships.
Check out more on BLUEtique " and a whole passel of other new stores " in next week's ShopGirl.
