Looking back a couple of weeks, Textures was very proud to celebrate it's 29th birthday on August 15! We opened for business on August 15, 1983, and were located at 30 Hess Street - current site of the Gown and Gavel.
In early 1994, Textures moved down the street to 11 Hess St. (beside the parking lot at King Street).
Early 2000 found us at our current spot - 236 Locke Street South . Hard to believe we've been on Locke for 12 years now!
Our original six members have blossomed to more than 50, so you are always assured of finding a wide variety of unique, handcrafted works, and our personal approach to serving our loyal customers remains the same!
In celebration of back to school, the approaching fall season, and the annual Locke Street Festival (September 15, 2012) we would like to offer a seasonal sampling of sensational specialties to whet your appetite, and maybe lure you down to Locke Street for another visit:
