Keeping small businesses busy and supporting local families, is a passion for 007 and I. We love the town of Fairhope and whenever possible we will stop in to a family-owned business long before we stop at a big box store. That is what these “First Friday” posts are all about. Supporting local merchants. The top story this month begins at a local art gallery.
This Friday, The Lyons Share will be featuring artist, Jennifer Nyblom who showcases touching, lovely art that represents “the town that raised her.” What could be more worthy of a First Friday stop? Lindsey Lawrence from The Lyons Share offered this about the event:
“The Town That Raised Me” by Fairhope native, Jennifer Nyblom is a beautiful showcase of Fairhope past and present. It truly captures the timeless beauty of this place. Locations selected in each painting have a feeling of home. Jennifer takes places we drive by, or used to drive by every day and transforms them into timeless treasures.
This once proud home was built by E.B Gaston, one of the founders of Fairhope. It stands lonely but patiently, on it’s little hill waiting to be loved again. But for now, it stares at the street with empty windows. (I don’t know who owns her now, but please do not let her fall prey to the bulldozers.)

Just across the street from The Lyons Share, stop in to The Fairhope Store and get one of their brand-new-this-week, exclusive Fairhope Cast Net T-shirts. Not only are they a perfect design for the city, but they are SOOOOOO comfortable!
These fun, short-sleeve t-shirts are available in white, ice blue and caribe green.
Sizes are small through XXL.
They sell for $24.
Continuing on Del a Mar Street, get by The Fairhope Salon and Spa early (they close at 5) for these new products:
This incredible product is a dry shampoo. It is simply a puff of powder rather than an aerosol. An instant refresh using oats to soak up any oils, it smells of 25 pure flower and plant essences! It sells for $30 and only $26 for refills.
Fairhope, I will race you to the salon for this one. The Beautifying Scrub is made of mineral-rich salt crystals to comfortably polish away surface cells. It renews your skin while certified organic plant oils melt the moisture in! It smells divine, as most Aveda products do, with hints of lavender, bergamot, and rosemary. It sells for $50.
New Arrivals for Fall! DejaVu is featuring Judith March clothing and will be open on First Friday until 9:00.
They will also be having a featured sale for tax-free weekend. Stop in for details.
Come by and share a beverage. DejaVu loves getting to know their community!
This lovely store on Fairhope Avenue will be open for Artwalk! A little boutique that carries all or your game day styles, no matter who you are cheering for!
Here are your Auburn colors.
And your Crimson Tide colors.
Stop by and say hello!
Isola is a brand new line at Shoefly. I want the one on the right, so don’t buy that one in a size 8! (hahaha) I love, love, love the color combo and the stacked heel!
These Tiba True boots with the oh-so-fabulous fringe sell for $130.
And look how stylish they are with shorts! Thanks, Sarah for modeling!
Thanks for supporting a local blogger by reading this post! And a very special thank you to all of our local shops for letting us know what’s new in Fairhope. I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow night at the August 2016 First Friday Artwalk.
