If the anticipation is killing you while you wait for the Lake Highlands Town Center to bring fresh new retail to our neighborhood, this news may make you happy. Construction begins this week on a new shop called T. Hee Greetings and Gifts next door to Highlands Cafe at Walnut Hill and Audelia. Owners David Farris and Tony Doles have extensive experience in retail, and they have scoured the nation looking for gift, stationery, and party items which will sell in LH. "We love the small town feel here," Tony told me. "We want to be the neighborhood place everyone turns to when they’re looking for the perfect gift." Tony should know. After years of working for Party City and Michael’s, he became a manufacturer’s rep with over 400 accounts, discerning his personal favorites such as candles from Nouvelle, stuffed animals by Jellycat, baby gifts by Swanky Blanky, personal care products from K. Hall, and party platters and serving ware by Tag, Design Design, and more. "We’ll also offer some Wildcat stuff, high end stationery, and holiday decorations," he reported. "It’s a great fit because we practically live at Highlands Cafe anyway." Don’t we all, Tony. Don’t we all.
