When C and I visited Richmond this summer to see if the move here was doable, we luckily happened upon Carytown and the deal was much closer to sealed. This 30-something mom pushing a stroller liked the vibe of the young, local-centric stretch of Cary Street. When I saw The Byrd I knew I could make it here. (A Mighty Wurlitzer on Saturday nights!)
I was also encouraged by Need Supply, where I picked up one of my favorite necklace thingies of all time last summer. This boutique shop carrying a handful of labels you've never heard of has a vibe that's cool and feminine but slightly rebellious.
