Corner View: Shopping, Reno

When people think of Reno they usually think of casinos, gambling, divorce, and a silly show on Comedy Central. However, there is a lot more to the Biggest Little City these days. In the past decade there has been a huge push to redefine downtown and as a result a few little ‘districts’ have sprouted. There is the CalAve area and then there is the 1st and Arlington area around Wingfield Park and the Truckee River. Both of these that have some great little shops, eateries, a movie theater and a few sweet little watering holes. Not to mention what the outdoors have to offer like the river and kayak park. Check out this site for more details about the area.
One of my favorite spots to stop and drool is at Shoe.

I stopped in last night and visited with the gals that run the shop and the one next to it (I.Me.Mine)- super nice and friendly. They didn’t mind that I pulled out my camera.
oh man are there ever some drool worthy pieces of footwear in that shop!
I found this link this morning, all about shopping in the Biggest Little City. Pretty cool.

PS today is MrO’s 8th month ‘birthday’ update is on its way tomorrow complete with chair picture and milestones. I know, you all can hardly wait right?

    Love shoes.. love the photography.. love your corner.

    My friend is from Reno, and we tease her by pronouncing it Rehhno.. not Reeeno. It drives her crazy.
