I had a formal to go to at the last moment and decided to try out One Night Affair Party Rental. I had never rented a dress but I have to say it was a good experience. The took care of me and got me in a perfect dress for the evening. I took it back the next day and felt great about it. This is perfect for people who go to a lot of events and don't want to buy a lot of dresses. The rental price was good and service was great.
Bridlewood is a fun course to play when you want a bit of a challenge. There are lots of hazards and it seems that there is water on everyhole (there isn't but it seems that way when you continue to sink balls!). The greens are nice and the fairways are well kept but sometimes get a little tall. The proshop is nice and you can get your basic supplies. The greens fees are reasonable and worth it for the type of course!
A friend of mine took me to Knick Knacks when we were visiting them and we walked around forever. They have everything. I found toys I had as a kid as well as a painting for my house. I was very impressed with how well organized and clean it was even though there was tons of stuff in each booth. You pay up at the counter and they credit each booth. Worth a look!
If you love paper and paper crafts- this is the place for you. They have all kinds and qualities of paper. I have bought paper to make letterhead with and other to use for personal invitations. The prices vary on the quality of paper. The store is well organized and worth checking out if you are a crafter. Call for directions or check out the website.
I have never bought here but I took a big bag of children's clothes to Rock A Bye Bay. They requested that they be laundered and if they had tags to leave them on there. Most of mine had tags. I ended up selling 90% of the items and got a nice amount for them. They are very professional and the store is very very cute. This is the place to go if you have kids. They grow out of clothes so quick.
Little Elm Flower shop use to be the only place to order flowers in Little Elm and when I would send them to my friend- this was it. They are a nice little flower shop that really takes care of their customers. They are hometown and treat every customer like they have known them forever. The prices are very good and the flowers have always been very fresh. They have some cute little gifts that you can put with the flowers. They are really helpful on the phone. I have never ordered from them on-line but do know that they do have a site.
Southlake Florist and Gifts is a nice shop that isn't very big but has a lot of flowers and small gifts. I have sent flowers here many times and always been happy. They did a very nice arrangement for friends who had a baby and they tried to deliver it to the hospital but she has already checked out-- they called right away and got the address and took it to their house. I was very impressed. A little expensive but right in line with other florist in the area.
Curiosity Gifts is a very nice gift store that has lot of higher end gift type items. I bought a lamp there for a friend who has very unique taste in decorating and she loved it. The store is decorated very nice and gives you a lot of ideas on how to incorporate their items into you home. They have a lot of home furnishing as well as gift items. The style is eclectic with a flare of animal print. The clerks seem to always be very helpful and I have always been approached and asked if I needed help. It is right off of Rufe Snow and easy to find.
The Chocolate Rose was suggested to me to go find some bath lotions and I did. They have so much in the shop and you can get it delivered. I got flowers and a bath basket delivered to my mother in law and she loved it. They do have some chocolate in the store and it smells wonderful but I have never tried it. I go for the gifts and they have some really neat ones and very upscale. The prices are right in line with the high quality they carry. The cashier can be a little aloof but other than that- love this place!
This is my favorite store for gifts, especially Christmas Gifts. Merry's Christmas and Clowns has the most wonderful little gifts and collectibles for anyone. They have a lot of collectible ornaments and christmas nativities. I collect an ornament that I can only find here and the price is great (cheaper than ordering it on-line or e-bay). The staff is really nice and doesn't bother you if you just want to browse but are there for you when you have questions. They also carry a lot of clown related figurines and stuff clowns. I have never looked at the prices but if they are like the rest of the stuff, they are priced well too. Come in around christmas to see the whole store really decorated to the hilt. It is decorated with trees and ornaments all year long but at Christmas it is even better. This store is on Main Street in Grapevine and is very easy to find.
PROS: Great selection of gifts
CONS: some scarry looking clowns in there
