Here at okc.net, we’re big believers in supporting local businesses. Not only does it keep our money in our own community, it helps to build our civic identity. You can’t complain that there’s nothing cool to do unless you support the people trying to do cool things.
Every week we’re going to dispatch one of our crack photographers to take pictures of some of the awesome things that you need to buy from local shops. This week, Grace Gordon (of the excellent fashion blog http://www.highfashiongirl.com ) goes window shopping in The Plaza District.
Collected Thread and DNA Galleries have become anchors in the ever expanding Plaza District between Penn and Classen on NW 16th St. Perhaps this brief photo essay will explain why. Photos by Grace Gordon, captions (such as they are) by Colin Newman.
