When we moved to our new location here in Downtown Tulsa, Oklahoma in March, we knew we wanted a new store-front to be a part of it.
Over the past couple of years, our customers have often asked about a retail shop of our own that they’d be able to visit and see the product lines we offer, in person. However, conducting our business and creating everything in-house at a warehouse previously didn’t offer much room or flexibility for that. Thankfully, we’ve had our products in a large amount of other boutiques and shops nationwide where people could go to see them, but a shop of our own was something we looked forward to hopefully having in the future.
So after moving and becoming a part of the ever-growing Pearl District, we knew it would be the perfect time and place to finally make it happen.
We had a great time designing the shop, building unique displays and innovative pieces, as well as putting them all together it a way that we felt best represented our brand. Even though we didn’t quite finish it as quickly as we originally hoped (between getting the wood shop back up and running, new product launches, going to Market in Atlanta, and going through the process of getting on Shark Tank, our schedule left little room for our project), like everything else we create, we wanted to take the time to do it right and knew it was going to be worth the hard work and patience we put in.
And finally, on Saturday October 24th, we had our Grand Opening!
As a part of our celebration, we offered free custom back-etching on any bow tie purchased in our store, as well as giving away free sample bow ties to the first 50 customers who walked through the door. It was really great to see the overwhelming support and positive feedback we received as people from all over the state came to check out our newest addition and get in on the fun.
The photo above is a little sneak peek of our front desk. Designed using metal strips to mirror the look of wood grain, it was easily one of our most commented-on pieces.
From our wood-brimmed fedoras, pocket squares, wooden bow ties, lapel flowers, and t-shirts, we have everything we offer online, in stock at our store. So come stop by, say hello, and take a look around! We are open Monday-Friday from 9:30am to 5:00pm. Our address is: 623 S Peoria Ave, Tulsa OK 74120—We’re located just a couple driveways down from the Phoenix Cafe at the corner of 8th and Peoria. Just look for the sign below and you’ll know you’re at the right place!
