Mesa Home: A Cherokee Street Shop Dedicated to Renewal and Creativity
This little clothing-and-decor retailer finds the sweet spot between wall-to-wall cuteness and sensory overload. The shop regularly hosts bustling pop-ups with local jewelers and designers, with a space small enough for attendees to reach out from anywhere on the floor and touch an array of quirky objects in stock, from fabrics, necklaces, cat toys and ceramic mugs to baby-sized harem pants.
The inventory is a mix of locally handcrafted items and fair-trade or tribal merchandise from around the world, interwoven with vintage furniture and accessories. Along the back walls, racks of unique, gently used clothing—the shop specializes in streetwear from the ’80s and ’90s—highlight owner Anni Stone’s dedication to renewal and creativity. The staff is quick to strike up a conversation or hold a baby while a customer browses, making Stone’s four-year-old shop feel all the more home-like.
