Walking up to Tavin's front door, we were amazed at the transformation. Completely overhauling the building's facade (as well as inside), team Tavin had been working overtime. Erin and crew, working on a budget, aged IKEA lamps and the stores walls to give them a vintage look. Our favorite DIY are the shelves made from cabinet doors and chicken wire hanging by thick rope. In addition to all things fashion, Tavin carries bath products, artwork, design books, stationary, hammocks from Nepal and pillows and blankets from India. Not to mention vintage recycled and refurbished furniture obtained at nearby flea markets. During your visit, you can count on hearing French tunes (with a little Van Morrison sprinkled in). Tavin is definitely worth the trip across town--we felt like we had just stepped into a quaint Parisian boutique.
