Tulsa native Whitney Eslicker is responsible for providing holiday cheer throughout the year.
Her shop, Adorn, is decked with items for each season.
Eslicker opened the shop at 317 S. Trenton Ave. in fall 2018 after she created a holiday interior design business three years ago with her mother, Debbie Miller.
“I started decorating homes for the holidays,” Eslicker says. “There was such a demand for it, plus a lot of hard work, long days and not enough of us to go around, and I didn’t like turning people away.”
Eslicker and Miller mulled the idea of opening a pop-up shop spanning Halloween through Christmas.
“People began asking us, ‘Well, are you doing anything for Valentine’s Day? What about Easter?’ and I thought, maybe it needs to be a permanent store.”
The shop — full of purple, glitter and fun — was set up in four days by Eslicker’s family and friends and was even inspired by locally owned stores from Tulsa’s past. “When I was a kid, my mom would take me to Et Cetera House,” Eslicker says. “We would go down the stairs, and it was just this magical experience with all of the Christmas and holiday decorations.”
That is the same feeling she is working to recreate at Adorn, to make it a place where families with kids of all ages can shop and feel excited about the upcoming season.
“We know and love our products and will tell you more history than you want to know,” Eslicker says. “I want people to feel special and know they bought something artisan and supported crafters and artists. I want people to walk in, smile and leave with glitter.”
