Although Thread didn't win BEST RESALE SHOP in this year's Houston Press 2011 Best of Houston Poll we are very excited that 19th Street won best window shopping!
Best Window Shopping - 2011
Though in constant flux, one thing about 19th Street in the Heights hasn't changed in years — it beats the Galleria by a mile (several blocks, actually) when it comes to window shopping. For one thing, the items in the windows on 19th Street are things you can actually afford. Vintage fashions at Replay complement the Heywood Wakefield furniture in the little antique store next to Shade. If you prefer modern wear, just around the corner is Buffalo Exchange, where you can find modern designers at gently used prices. And while the Galleria has AC, more and more restaurants and cafes are popping up on 19th, where you can rest and refill before hitting the shops again.
