Its that time of year when we go out and buy stuff for our friends and family.  I love to shop local whenever I can and I thought I would share a few of my favorite things right now...

Candlefish locally made candles and gifts: Candlefish has quickly become one of my favorite local stores.  They offer candle making classes, feature local artisans, and have a serious scent library.  Their space at 71 Wentworth is BEAUTIFUL; Candlefish is sure to have a gift for everyone on your list. 

Chambers Austelle original art and prints: I was lucky enough to win a beautiful Penelope print last month and it is now proudly displayed on our mantle.  All of Chambers' ladies are super special and would make a unique and thoughtful gift.  The best part?  10% of all purchases goes towards the Young Artists program for the students of Sanders Clyde Creative Arts School.

Raven Roxanne original art and prints: Raven has become an art crush of mine and I am currently obsessed with her "girls with flowers".  Subscribe to her newsletter to stay tuned for new work releases.

Itty Boo & Co baby and kids clothing: For anyone who might have a little-one to dress, check out Itty Boo & Co for adorable gift options.  This Etsy shop was established by my lovely friend and former roomie, Ashley Mathias, and her ridiculously cute son, Atlas, is her go-to male model :)

Fabulon local art: Finally I will shamelessly recommend checking out all the wonderful local artwork for sale at Fabulon.  There's always something new to see and chatting with the owner Susan is a treat. I've already started dropping off "Garden Party" pieces, and note cards will be available soon!

Happy holiday shopping everyone!
