Simply calling Commerce a hotel gift shop doesn’t do the space justice. Yes, it is situated within the Adolphus Hotel, and sure, you can find a toothbrush and a charging cord there, but every detail of the shop, curated by the effortlessly chic Christine Visneau, has been meticulously planned and executed. “We think as much about display as anything else,” explains Visneau. “We overanalyze everything to figure out if it makes sense.”
The retail veteran stocked the shelves with hard-to-find Texas makers that shoppers may not know about yet. So whether you’re just passing through or have been in Dallas your whole life, you’ll almost certainly discover something new at the lovely downtown shop.
