Floral and flat-top artistry

tobarb.jpgtoflor.jpg The florist shop in the oak-shaded corner of the Twin Oaks shopping center has a beautiful piece of window art, a hand-painted rendition of old-fashioned double hollyhocks. Or maybe they’re intended to be carnations. Or roses. At any rate, they’re highly ornamental.

Also at this corner is a barber shop currently meeting the Fast Freddy price for a plain cut. Walk-ins are welcome, and so are women. Among the cuts offered are flat-tops and every possible variation on the fade theme.

This corner is where the late, lamented Twin Oaks Hardware used to be located before it moved over to Congress, where it held the spot now occupied by White Crane. Next to The Fabric Shop and the nail salon, which also has some hand-painted window art, there’s remodeling work going on for a new tenant, but the ladies in The Fabric Shop report that the workers either don’t know or won’t say anything about the nature of the new establishment.
