Tucked between stately dwellings on 25th street not far from the Pleasure Pier, it’s easy to hurry past the quaint converted dwelling that houses Galveston Gallery. It’s both easy to miss and not to be missed.
Outside, the gallery bears resemblance to a charming pied-a-terre, but inside the shop is stocked with luxurious trinkets, sumptuous bath products and gourmet delights — gifts to give yourself and others.
Curated by stylish owner Kent Brashears in the essence of good taste, Galveston Gallery carries all manners of kitchen goodies, including a charming line of midcentury cookware from Poland.
As you enter the boutique, the subtle aroma of freshly brewed coffee delights the senses. Galveston Gallery’s signature blend was crafted by Houston-based coffee maker, House of Coffee Beans.
A library of treats lined with peanuts and preserves, salsa and seasonings can be found on a floor-to-ceiling shelf. There are a bounty of items from Fredericksburg Farms, South Texas Mesquite barbecue sauce, Old San Antonio Tomatillo Salsa and Apricot Ginger preserves. Pick several delectable offerings and they can be assembled into a basket.
Only steps from the gourmet grocery section, stunning Arthur Court Serveware is on display. The aluminum pieces come in many patterns, but there are two stunners in stock at Galveston Gallery — the Magnolia Collection, which features the delicate blooms endeared to Galveston, and the Sealife Collection, which was inspired by underwater creatures, including freshwater fish, crabs, shells and coral.
If you’re dawdling around the island on a lazy summer weekend, stop by and check out the objets d’art on display at Galveston Gallery.
