Historic Shopping District Welcomes Sweet New Tenants for the Holidays

Fabbriology in Rice Village

RICE VILLAGE IS welcoming a sweet new tenant and two seasonal pop-ups to its roster this holiday season.


Opening in December, Sprinkles Cupcakes will occupy more than 1,700 square feet of space at 2563 Amherst St., situated next to the recently opened Van Leeuwen ice cream shop and Shake Shack.

Additionally, Rice Village will see two seasonal pop-ups, See's Candies and Fabbriology, open this fall.

"Sprinkles is an incredible brand with a highly sought-after product offering, and the fact they have chosen Rice Village for their next location is a testament to the continued evolution of Rice Village and its ability to attract top-quality tenants," says Morgan Lera, investment manager of Rice Management Company, in a release.

Known for its baked-fresh-daily cupcakes, cookies, brownies and cakes — and its cupcake ATM in Highland Village — the Rice Village location marks its second for the beloved California chain.

Contemporary artist Angela Fabbri will showcase her art in a Fabbriology pop-up gallery across the street at 2534 Amherst. The internationally collected artist is known for her bold use of color, and has shown her work nationally and globally.

And opening Nov. 8 at 2567 Amherst St., See's Candies displays its mouthwatering variety of candies, chocolates and seasonal gifts.

These additions follow the recent openings of SkinSpirit, the nation's number-one provider of Botox; Duck Camp, a hunting and fishing apparel store; CB2, a luxury home furnishings store; and Christina Greene, a local jeweler.

With Expertise in Blondes, Extensions and More, the Janelle Alexis Team Is a Go-To Salon

YOU CAN'T LIMIT Janelle to one title – Hairdresser. Her career and business has been established and built on a strong foundation. Using her two business degrees + one more in-process, this enables Janelle and the team to deliver not only a customer-focused experience, but a foundationally solid business. There is much more than meets the eye, and in sharing a little bit about Janelle, she was not only an international hair extension educator for over 14 years, but brings extensive expertise to blondes. She rounds this out with her previously launched namesake cosmetic line, which is a perfect complement to her belief that “Beauty is our Business”.

AS WE PRODUCE our second annual “Cool 100” list, we’re reminded of our thoughts as we debuted this feature last year. We acknowledged that deciding who and what is cool is not only a moving target but also entirely subjective. And that attempting to “rank” the coolest people in Houston is a fool’s errand, one that will leave us immediately open to criticism. “You think she is cooler than him? You included this person?! You left off that one!?"

SUMMER’S HERE, AND the pop-up art exhibits have begun. Maybe it’s a response to the relentless heat and unpredictably weird weather, but during June through August, the city’s more forward-thinking (and often relatively young) art mavens embrace an approach to curation and presentation that is both cost-conscious and community-centric.
