Best Place to Find a Birthday Card

Photo: , License: N/A


Sloan/Hall
5424 Broadway, (210) 828-7738, sloanhall.com

Housed in an Alamo Heights landmark beneath one of the few surviving Mobil Pegasus neon signs, Marcus Sloan and Shannon Hall’s “multi-category lifestyle store” tackles specialized gifting from various angles (jewelry, books, clothing, housewares, fragrance, etc.) but truly takes the cake with its carefully curated wall of refined greeting cards. On a recent visit, standouts from the nicely varied birthday corner included hand-painted creations by Judy Barnes ($6), hip letterpress offerings from Elum Designs ($5.50) and MikWright greetings made from quirky vintage photos ($3.50).

RUNNER-UP: On Main Off Main
120 W Mistletoe, (210) 737-2323, onmainoffmain.com

If the birthday boy or girl in question has a particularly naughty or campy sensibility, On Main Off Main might be the best choice.
