Meet The Merchant: Emporium Pies

Our “Meet The Merchant” series is written for you, our reader, to introduce you to the shops, restaurants, services + people that make the Bishop Arts District unique. This week, we’re talking to Emporium Pies.

Emporium Pies wants to make people happy and to create opportunities for friends and neighbors to spend time together over a delicious slice of pie.

BAD: What is your business all about?

EP: We are a local pie shop. We make our pies with love by hand, from scratch with our own recipes. Our menu is seasonal, but our smiles are always in season!  🙂

BAD: When did you open your doors?

EP: We opened in September 2012.

BAD: Why did you choose the Bishop Arts District?

EP: We chose Bishop Arts District because it is where our community lived and the folks in the neighborhood really understand the value of a hand made product without a bunch of hydrogenated oils, dyes and preservatives.

BAD: What’s your favorite thing about the Bishop Arts District?

EP: I love that I can walk down the street and see a bunch of people I know. Friends and neighbors, fellow business owners. It is a real community of people who look out for each other and genuinely care for each other.

BAD: Build a perfect date night in the Bishop Arts District. Where would you go? What would you do?

EP: My perfect family day would start with brunch at Boulevardier and then a walk down to Dirt Flowers to pick a flower out for each of my girls. We would stroll around for a bit to walk off breakfast and then grab a piece of pie before nap time.

BAD: Any fun news you’d like to share during your “Meet the Merchant” Tuesday Takeover?

EP: National Pi Day is coming up on March 14th (3.14) and our delicious Chickin Lickin pot pie will be in stores all day!

Meet The Merchant: Mosaic Makers Co

Our “Meet The Merchant” series is written for you, our reader, to introduce you to the shops, restaurants, services + people that make the Bishop Arts District unique. This week, we’re talking to Katy, with retail space Mosaic Makers Collective.

Mosaic Makers Collective is a new retail concept in the renovated 410 Market on Bishop Avenue that touts some of Dallas’ very best female-designed, handmade goods. Mosaic sprouted from a need for an artisan community, and founder Katy Sensenig Schilthuis wanted to create a fun space where artists could get to know Dallas as a whole – and likewise, Dallas could get to know the artists and their work.

BAD: What is your business all about?

Katy: Mosaic Makers Collective is a co-op shop in the Bishop Arts District that sells high-quality paper goods and gifts from 11 local women: all designed in Dallas + handmade. I formed the collective in April of 2018 as a way to form community amongst local, female artisans. I knew there were women around Dallas with incredible talent, and wanted to celebrate that! At Mosaic, the artists make the items and work behind the counter – so the customer gets the chance to actually meet the artist while shopping.

BAD: When did you open your doors?

Katy: May 1, 2018. Just over 7 months ago!

BAD: Why did you choose the Bishop Arts District?

Katy: I’d call the Bishop Arts District the “hip Greenwich Village” of Dallas. Its chalk full of adorable local shops, eateries, and bars – all run by incredibly friendly and passionate people. Their passion spills over into the community, and that in combination with the hipster vibe and a plethora of fun events, keeps locals coming back for more.

BAD: Build a perfect date night in the Bishop Arts District. Where would you go? What would you do?

Katy: I’d start with a cocktail during happy hour at Tribal All Day Cafe, then head to Boulevardier for dinner. My favorite items on the menu? Crawfish beignets + steak frites. Then, I’d head to the Wild Detectives for a fun, quirky backyard show. Finish off the night with a piece of pie from Emporium Pies and viola! Fun night to be had by all.
