The ladies from jewelry, apparel and home goods line All the Wire — sisters Tori Gonzales and Desiree Cox — will be at the Flea Style Summit, talking about finding the perfect business partner and managing a partnership. They live in Denton, Texas, home of the University of North Texas and often called “the new Austin” for its funky, low-key vibe and plethora of emerging musicians. The little town is packed with creative minds and cool things to see and do. Here are a few of the sisters’ favorite spots.
