Progress on Park Plaza Shops in Downtown Lafayette


The temporary fencing that had been in front of the Park Plaza shops in downtown Lafayette for a while have finally been removed, the Available signs are up, so I look forward to seeing which stores, restaurant and/or cafe will open up in this location. Note the store at the far left in the photo is the Pioneer Store which was built in the 1860s and used as a store, post office and dwelling house.

Progress on Douglah Designs Showroom in Lafayette

3535 Mt Diablo Blvd, Lafayette

Back in March we learned that the pop-up boutique Leslie Evers would be closing in downtown Lafayette in Lafayette Square, to be replaced by a new Douglah Design showroom and their temporary signage is now up. This store will feature lighting and plumbing fixtures, sinks, tile and more while their other location at 3586 Mt Diablo Blvd. down the street will host their showroom. More information at their website here.

From their Facebook page:

You may have heard the rumors, but it’s true…. we are opening a second showroom in downtown Lafayette! Here are some photos of what it looks like right now, with the DD guys hard at work, plus a sneak peak of what we will be featuring: luxury plumbing, exclusive tile, and more, from ultra-modern to rustic traditional & everything in between!

Threads Consignment Relocates into Downsized Norf London

1341-H North Main St, Walnut Creek

In February I noted that Threads Consignment moved next to Norf London in downtown Walnut Creek and now more change is happening in this area as Norf London has downsized with Threads Consignment taking over the other half of the store. CY Louie, the jewelry and accessories boutique previously in Broadway Plaza will relocate where Threads Consignment used to be, right next door.

In case you don’t know where this fashion hub is, as you’re walking down N. Main St. towards Neiman Marcus, turn right right before Brandy Melville in the covered passageway and it will be on your right, a few stores down.

Body Time Opening July 15th in Downtown Walnut Creek

1378 N. Main St, Walnut Creek

Last week I noted that Berkeley-based skin care company Body Time would be coming to Walnut Creek and it turns out they’re having a soft opening tomorrow, July 15th followed by the grand opening on Saturday, July 19th. I had a chance to preview the inside and it looks amazing (see photos after the jump). Check out their product line here. They also have a small men’s section in the shop (see product line here). They even offer birthday parties where kids can add scents and design their own lotion.


Check out more photos of the inside after the jump…. Continue reading
