A few weeks ago, hubby and I went shopping on Dempsey Hill for some furniture. Window shopping... understand we didn't actually buy anything. We both have a real issue with spending money like that... lol... ask our kids - our furniture was a brazillion years old! So I guess I have to say we just browsed. We did find a couple of things we loved, but we did not commit by buying any of them. Dempsey Hill is known for shopping and food. We had originally gone to Dempsey Hill to go to Margarita's Mexican Restaurant:
It is good food with a twist (as most restaurants here are), but for a truer Mexican, I like El Patio in Holland Village better. More about that another day. However, Margarita's sure has great atmosphere and the food is nice as well - ahhh, and the Margarita's are great!
Once we finished eating, we decided there were several furniture places we wanted to revisit. Dempsey Hill has a lot of great places to shop:
If you look at the picture above again, see that blue sign on the right?
This is one of our favorite places to browse. There is a reason this place is jam packed :-) Check out the great prices here - we found them to be more than reasonable and very helpful. We will be going back here :-)
Dempsey even has places to sit and wait for shoppers:
And an entire row of more restaurants:
If you have time to play, this is a great place to do it. You can go up on the hill to browse, eat and shop - and may you will even buy something. It makes for a very relaxing day, lots to see and plenty of places to buy some awesome treasures.
Dempsey Hill has a ton of history too. You should check out the Dempsey Hill page, read all about it, check out the tenants and then head up for a visit. Be sure and look all around the hill - it can be deceiving - lots of little nooks and crannies to miss places.
Hope to see you on Dempsey Hill!
