Showcasing Six of the Many Upscale Shops that Comprise Highland Village’s Most Unique Shopping Destination

For months, local residents waited with eager anticipation as an old, abandoned supermarket in Highland Village was transformed and brought back to life as the Painted Tree Marketplace. Little did they know the unique shopping experience that waited behind the sliding glass supermarket doors. Formerly numbered grocery aisles now boast charming street names and are home to multiple small shops filled with uncommon finds.

“At Painted Tree, shoppers will find hundreds of upscale shops, all under one roof,” says Caylie Barnett, Painted Tree Marketplace head of marketing and media. “Our talented vendors stock their spaces with home decor, fashion, soaps, candles and more. We also offer fun workshops, events and giveaways.”

Christian Gillum, Highland Village Painted Tree managerial consultant, says he has been amazed by the community’s response to this new way of shopping.

“It’s been such a blast seeing a strong community of shoppers who support local businesses begin to form here in Highland Village. Painted Tree promotes a productive, creative community through a fabulous, approachable marketplace.”

This month, Cross Timbers Lifestyle features six of the many shops that comprise Painted Tree Marketplace: Kali Hirst Photography, Joanna A. Boutique, Hollyhocks Vintage Home & Market, Grammy’s Closet Boutique, Handmade & Reclaimed and Oak Street Market.
