Vintage clothing store Hoot + Louise had their grand opening at last Friday night's trolley tour on South Main.

Anna Avant, the store’s owner, says her inspiration (and the name!) comes from her grandmother, as evidenced by this adorable photograph sitting on the checkout counter.

In terms of clothing, Hoot + Louise offers moderately priced vintage, including dresses and shirts…

…and beautiful belts.

The store also stocks new clothing from designers Avant handpicked. There are some beautiful pieces hand-printed with scissors and birdcages.

They also have clothes and accessories for babies, as well as a section of cute trinkets and teacups.

Check out Hoot + Louise at their new home on G.E. Patterson, between Delphinium and Cheesecake Corner, and on their Facebook page, where you can find more information and much better photographs than these.

Also during Friday’s trolley tour was a convention of sorts for enthusiasts of Etsy.com, a site where artists can set up shop to sell handmade wares.

Many of those wares were available to buy at the Robinson gallery, where a group of Memphis sellers put their products on display.

These cute ruffle-y necklaces are from FlyingHearts.

These knit necklaces can be found in the Fickle Fiber Diva’s store.

These cute little plates, along with other cute, mostly tiny pottery (my favorites were miniature flower vases), are made by Pleasantview Pottery.

These gorgeous lamps (the iPhone does them no justice) are part of the selection available in Rock Paper Scissors’ shop.
