118. Best Source of Hippie-Chic Clothing for Women—San Antonio, Texas The sultry fragrance of incense wafts through Kathleen Sommers’ eponymous shop, located in the premises of a former beauty supply house on North Main Avenue. The store is so dimly lit and so full of wondrous “stuff” that one has to navigate slowly to take in even half of it: sequinned Mexican skirts, Asian noodle cookbooks, sculptural beeswax candles, glittery evening shoes—in short, lots of feel-good girlie luxuries that have won Sommers an avid following among hip San Antonio ladies. Most alluring is her own line of luxe but comfortable eveningwear “made in our factory a few blocks from here” for those who like the rich hippie look. One irresistible ensemble included a short, fitted, antique velvet jacket of beaujolais red worn over a creamy crushed silk shell, with flowing velvet pants of a burgundy so dark it was almost black. Novelist Sandra Cisneros is said to shop here. Contact: Kathleen Sommers, 2417 North Main Avenue, San Antonio, TX 78212. Telephone: 210-732-8437.
