Synister on the Strand is an entirely unique shop to Downtown Galveston that specializes in alternative fashion including Steampunk and Neo-Victorian styles. They also carry a large variety of plus size clothing.
The Synister brand is being built from the ground up by the mother daughter trio, Nancy, Kailey and McKenzie Stephenson. “We want to bring the dark and edgy alive to downtown in a way that's not done all year round. Think New Orleans meets Queen Victoria, but with vampires” says owner Nancy. The dynamic trio hopes to create a true haven that embraces the strange and unusual. “We want our store to feel and be eclectic. It won't be for everyone, but anyone will be welcome,” explains Nancy.
After 20 years of traveling back and forth from Houston to Galveston, the Stephenson's now call the island their home. They couldn't be happier to begin this new chapter in Galveston. When asked why they chose Galveston, Nancy answered, “The charm and inspiration of Galveston is undeniable, there's something about this city that has such an ease that's very inviting.”
With a great selection of unique items, Synister appeals to locals and tourists. Their presence on the Strand is a wonderful addition and makes the search for a one-of-a-kind outfit for events like Dickens on the Strand and Mardi Gras much easier.
