Holiday shopping is upon us and wouldn’t it be great if we could get all of our shopping done right in our little neck of the woods?! You can cross people off of your “nice” list, all while supporting local businesses and artisans and I have a couple recommendations for you!
Are you looking for an inexpensive little gift for that “hard to buy for person”, the jewelry lover or even the gentleman in your life (I know you don’t want to keep buying him socks)? Then you should certainly check out Flamingo’s Divine Finds at 3404 Cedar Ave. They are an occasional shop filled to the brim with unique little gifts, jewelry, small furniture and fabulous little trinkets. There is something for everyone here in this little shop of wonders. Please check them out on Facebook or at www.flamingosdivinefinds.com to find out when they will be open in the next months. They will be open for their “Pink Sale” which takes place on November 25th, 26th, and 27th .
And how about the gift of self care? A gift certificate to Imbue Yoga at 2223 E. 35th St. is an excellent option for the person needing some spiritual energy and healing. Also, consider a day of pampering with a gift certificate to Shear Art Hair Studio at 2228 E. 35th St. There are also small gifts available inside, so make sure to check these items as well for great gift giving options.
And last but certainly not least, consider connecting with a local artisan from right here in Corcoran! They are all around us! Here is a short list of some local artisans that you can purchase items from for that special someone:
