"Upscale specialty florist, et al." For Upscale Shoppers Tip by etfromnc

For Upscale Shoppers, Dallas: 4 reviews and 5 photos

I don't write many shopping tips and this is my first tip on Dallas but I could not pass up a place called Cymbidium when I was in northeast Dallas last summer. What young Amercan male was not introduced to the floral industry via a cymbidium? When I saw it I had to check it out. Robyn and Rachael, the sisters who own and operate Cymbidium are very young and hip, probably too upbeat for my continuous comfort, but great for a rather out of the ordinary florist cum candle shop. The shop is light, clean, and, in a sense, very transparent yet very colorful. Transparent because they use a lot of lucite and glass. Colorful because they shower you with splashes of seasonal color. If you described this place to me, I probably would react negatively toward it but by experiencing it first, I was very favorably impressed.

What to buy: Flowers and plants (some of them off-beat)
Cymbidium orchids, of course
Fashion accessories, such as ladies' handbags and jewelry
Scented items for the bath

What to pay: Probably a bit more than you might expect to pay elsewhere but someone has to pay for Robyn's and Rachael's creativity
