"I would encourage folks to pay attention to the details of the building. Built in 1901 most everything in the building is original, like the beaded ceiling, the original restored skylight, the back doors — all quite wonderful," says Alexander. Adrienne Breaux

The Owl isn't just for shopping: A bar in the middle anchors the space. Customers can grab a glass of wine or pint of beer (or sample something first), continue to poke around or enjoy a comfy corner of a couch (and maybe even decide they want to take it home with them).  Adrienne Breaux
