Our Storyteller Summertime Edit

Written By: Devin Williams-McCrary

Published on July 8, 2020

Our Storytellers are the first people to greet you at our doors and often the first ones to unbox, try, and get to know our new brands when they arrive in our stores. Needless to say, they know the fit and feel of every product better than anyone else. 

“Storyteller” is more than just a title. These team members know about brand founders, sustainability initiatives, and the why behind the brands at Neighborhood Goods. When they recommend something, your ears should perk up, because they know what they’re talking about. 

Morgan, Lauren, Jonathan, Marcus, and Arlette, team members from Austin, Plano, and NYC, handpicked our Summertime Edit. Feel free to browse their selection of warm weather gear and sun-kissed must-haves for this season and scroll down to discover what makes these products our Storytellers’ favs.


Smiley T-Shirt by Neighborhood Goods

“I love this shirt. I wore the green one and someone told me I reminded them of a camp counselor. I took that as a compliment and bought the navy one, too.” 

-Jonathan, Chelsea Market


Dolly Dress by Faherty

“An easy denim dress is a must have and this blue style from Faherty is a chic, versatile option. The self-tie belt makes it universally flattering for any body type.”

-Marcus, South Congress


Bo Shorts by Alex Crane

“The Alex Crane Bo Shorts are the perfect linen weight for these crazy hot Texas summers and are a gorgeous deep green you don’t see very often.”

- Lauren, South Congress


Sowden Bottle by Hay

“Hydration in this Texas heat is necessary, so do it in style :) ”

-Arlette, Legacy West


Field Bag by Rains

“This Danish rainwear brand is the perfect combination of form and function. Every item is beautifully designed and does exactly what it’s supposed to do: keep you (and your belongings) dry in wet weather. Their “Field Bag” is my go-to whenever I see rain in the forecast.”

-Jonathan, Chelsea Market


Vicky by Féroce

“Fun, funky shape that looks great on anyone!”

-Arlette, Legacy West


Goods Tote by Neighborhood Goods

“Having a tote is a must this summer! Whether you’re popping into the local farmers market to grab some fresh produce or shopping at Neighborhood Goods! A tote is the best way to carry your goods!”

-Morgan, Legacy West

Beauty and Wellness 

Shimmer + Glow Body Oil by Olive + M

“This shimmer and glow body oil adds a really beautiful glow to sun-kissed skin. Add a few drops to any moisturizer or sunscreen to give your everyday skincare staples a little shimmer for a buildable, custom highlighting effect.”

-Marcus, South Congress


Reboot by Barefoot Scientist

“This brand is an absolute one-stop shop for everything you need to care for your feet. One of my top picks is the “Reboot” Revitalizing Foot Peel. You gotta see it to believe it!.”

-Jonathan, Chelsea Market


Miss Independent Pure Polish by Miniluxe

“Miniluxe has created the perfect pastel lavender polish. It’s a great way to incorporate one of the seasons’ hottest color trends into your look. The color is youthful and fun while still being neutral enough for everyday wear.”

-Marcus, South Congress


Stoneware Dinnerware by Food52

“Whether it’s a summer backyard barbecue or a day spent lounging by the pool, this serving bowl is a beautiful way to display your favorite summer dish!”

-Morgan, Legacy West


Leash by Wild One

“Don’t let your Pup be left out of the wardrobe update! Snatch up the limited edition Lilac walk set from Wild One, including a leash, collar, and poop bags. Who says neighborhood walks can’t be a fashion show too!”

-Lauren, South Congress
