Run, don’t walk, to the Goddess of Glass in NoMi
Today I get to take fellow NoMi Passengers on a virtual shopping trip to the new art and gift shop in NoMi.
The Goddess of Glass, who sometimes goes by Connie Beckers, has opened a beautiful shoppe in the heart of NoMi at the up-and-coming intersection of Penn and Lowry. You’ll find The Goddess just west of the famous Northend Hardware and Rental store and directly next door to a soon-to-be cafe, hopefully called Lowry Diner. Darryl from Northend is working with a foodie guy (not the original foodies who were hoping to open here, but a different guy). Sounds like they are hammering out the menu theme, so if you have any suggestions, I suggest you head on into Northend, buy some hardware and leave your friendly opinion in Darryl’s ear. Knowing how community-minded they are, I’m sure they would welcome the input on what is going to bring in the customers.
Now, for the virtual shopping trip. I’m about to share a whole bunch of photos with you, but don’t let this be a substitute for an in-person visit! The shoppe is superb and amazing and nothing can beat a real, live visit. Never mind the fact that you can’t support this local business through my blog. So put it on your to-do list and think of what gifts you need to purchase soon, as there really is something for everyone here.
