Dayton’s newest businesses opened their doors today at 1132 Brown Street. The building, formerly home to The Flower Shoppe which moved to Oakwood, is now home to Dayton’s third location for Square One Salon & Spa on the 2nd floor. Several stylists from the original salon on Third Street have moved to the UD neigborhood salon, allowing both locations to add new clients, as the original salon was often booked solid. This also allows room for new stylists, which Square One will need as they’ve already got a lease on a 4th salon in Centerville, near Whole Foods.
On the main floor of the building you’ll find an upscale gift shop, Agnes & Orson. Joshua Stucky, co-owner of Square One Salon & Spa, has partnered with two Square One stylists, Canaan Good and Misty Wells to open a store that carries wonderfully eclectic gifts, candles, and small home goods. Named after Stucky’s two dogs, the store also has a small selection of gifts for pets, an array of leather goods, and a collection of barware.
My first impression of the store- it’s little bit classy and a little bit sassy! I picked up a few small novelty gifts, perfect for the office holiday gift exchange, saw a handbag I may ask Santa for and picked up several great gift cards, the kind they don’t sell at Hallmark!
The exposed brick, and reclaimed wood in the boutique give the place a rustic charm, the varied selection of merchandise make sure there’s something for everyone. And the parking behind the store make it easily accessible.
