We have a thing about tortoiseshell barrettes. We don't know why, because we don't really have a thing about either tortoiseshell or barrettes, but the particular array of tortoise-shell barrettes on the counter at Nau Enfield Drug made a convert of us. Just check out the Fifties-style (prob-ably Fifties vintage, in fact) glass-fronted display case full of clips, clasps and combs mounted on blue velvet. You can't help but realize you're in the presence of an utter fashion classic.
Nau's Enfield Drug, 1115 W. Lynn, 512/476-1221
