VIDEO: Retropolis' New Home. Dramatika, Coda, & Jubilee Are Also In the Halloween Spirit

Check out all the Halloween fixin's folks have in stores on the "19th Street antique strip."
(At least that's what I call it.)

First up! Retropolis, in its new location on 19th Street. 
I spoke with Sam at Retropolis for the latest on their new home in the heart of Greater Heights. 

Yoko Vintage has a spot inside! So does the Wear It Again Sam lady! Here's a fresh look inside!


And don't call it a costume shop. Ooooh no! Because it's NOT.

Retropolis is a serious fashion staple in the Houston Heights where they've selectively curated a great collection of unique looks from way back, to keep you in style for many years to come! 

Down the block is Dramatika, they have the most fabulous card and image selection.


Also, custom framing and unique images like this witch on 
The Saturday Evening Post that I saw in their window. 


Framed and ready to purchase!

I also popped in Jubilee to see all the great Halloween items they have for you to check out.
Here's a look!



I also popped inside Coda on 19th because I saw these fun pumpkins they have in the window. Turns out, their also having a sale on Halloween items!! Also, Veterans Day is fast approaching.




So shop local and support local area businesses.

CONSTRUCTION: Greystar and Broadstone Heights Waterworks Still In Development

Today I had so much fun looking around the Heights. Greystar is coming soon where the big old Chase bank was. The bank has since been built into a corner of the block and Greystar will occupy 3/4 of the entire block.


Here are the guys way up there, hard at work!


A couple of guys doing construction wave (avbove) as they continue to build on 19th and 20th where the old blue water tanks were. 

Broadstone Heights Waterworks is also coming soon. It'll be across the street from Greystar. 



This one is framing up nicely too! I can't wait to see the inside!


And I just love the Heights Medical Tower. 
My mom worked as a nurse in this building for much of her career. 
Here's a look at who's there today.
