The Tipping Point is Downtown Houston's first and only creative lifestyle destination located on the ground floor of the historic W. L. Foley Building at 214 Travis Street, Suite A. Locally owned and operated by native Houstonians since 2007.
We curate a select collection of limited-edition footwear, books, art, apparel, music, and accessories that are a reflection of our creative lifestyle. Our ongoing mission is to expose new innovative products and ideas that reflect our beliefs to our hand picked audience. We also seek to educate our guest on the history and story behind our products.
The Tipping Point is building a brand that extends beyond retail by partnering with local non-profit organizations and small businesses to create a springboard for creativity and innovation to flourish through a series of book signings, fund-raisers, product awareness campaigns, art exhibitions, movie screenings and music listening parties.
The Tipping Point’s namesake and philosophy are adopted from the book by Malcolm Gladwell, which embraces the concept that ideas can be spread quickly by a select group of early adopters who take something unknown and make it a trend.
