Have you checked out the new West Village
location of Froggies 5 & 10 yet?
Open since December, this Uptown outpost of everyone's favorite Dallas tchotchke shop is a little more sophisticated than its sibling up on Knox. I stopped in yesterday, and was delighted to find a wide selection of jewelry, tote bags and gift items (no wind up chatter teeth or rubber chickens at this Froggies). But what really got my pulse racing was the store's adorable displays of tableware, cocktail accoutrements and various other foodie finds!
pic 1: I heart these colorful plates. We all know a Hippie Chick, Little Princess or Happy Camper that would love these as a gift. There were also matching cups.
pic 2: Check out these shiny mini cocktail shakers. They come in packs of four - perfect for parites, and cute enough to serve the drinks right in 'em! The coasters, above, were also a find. Love the faux cross-stitch set with messages like "Go *&%$ yourself."
pic 3: There was also a display of colorful cooking and cocktail books - great for hostess gifts. And those packages up on the left are cheeky placemats. Sweet.
Check out Froggies Uptown for yourself - these shots barely scratch the surface. Happy Shopping!
