What’s new on Henderson
A new salon has opened on the corner of Henderson and Bonita in the pink house built in 1923. “There were so many challenges, but we overcame them,” says Glitz Salon owner Debi Gidner. “We have converted the pink house into a glamorous hair salon.” The salon specializes in the Organic Color, Curl and Control systems line, which does not use ammonia and is preferred by those who suffer from allergies.
Boutique catering company The Hospitality Sweet will provide sweets for London Cafe inside the new Timothy Oulton design store at Central and Henderson. Sisters Kristen Adams Scott and Meghan Adams, who own Hospitality Sweet, specialize in sweets and party food, plus wedding cakes, full catering and boxed lunches for meetings. Timothy Oulton opened in the former Potter Art Metal Studios building last month. It is the London-based designer’s first Texas store.


Art is Art offers design consultation with purchase
Art consignment store Art is Art now offers free in-home, professional design advice with the purchase of artwork valued at $500 or more. “We’re hoping to reach out to local people that definitely want local, modern, original art from our store but need a little help with placement,” says co-owner Carrie Jepsen. Co-owner and professional designer Renata Holder performs the design consultations.


Good 2 Go Taco/Barcadia owners open Acme F&B
A dream team of owners — Colleen O’Hare and Jeana Johnson of Good 2 Go Taco and Brooke Humphries and Brianna Larson of Barcadia — have opened a casual, fine dining restaurant at McKinney and Monticello. Described as “come-as-you-are fine dining,” Acme F&B features New American cuisine with a focus on seasonal, sustainable and local ingredients.
