Shop Local This Season!

Skip the Mall & Shop Small


Window display of clothing and accessoriesDid you know that for every $100 spent at locally owned small businesses, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll and other benefits? When you shop small and local you don’t just go home with a unique purchase, you help put food on a local family’s table and put their kids through college.

Plus the atmosphere at independent brick-and-mortal stores far surpasses a maddening mall experience. Sales associates are attentive and knowledgeable, and shops are decked out for the holidays—many offering holiday sales, custom gift-wrapping and special in-store refreshments.

So, we propose that you give back to our community this holiday season by shopping in it! Don’t know where to begin? Read about shopping in West Chester in another article in this issue. And, we have a few more suggestions …

 

Stop & Stroll Through Malvern

This quaint town is home to a collection of locally owned gems, many along King Street. Boutiques abound and are stocked with the latest trends. Visit Nota Bene Boutique for a wide selection of stylish clothing for all ages—with many brands made in America. Then stop in Gingy’s Boutique for more clothing and accessories, including original designs by Jean, the owner.

You’ll find elegant women’s apparel at Posh Collections, with personal shoppers available to assist you in your quest for the perfect gift or holiday outfit. At Louella, with another shop in Wayne, take your pick of classic and contemporary styles.

Looking for personalized home décor items? The Picket Fence is packed with hostess gifts, candles, quotable signs, specialty baby items and more. Or stop in Knots & Weaves for more than just stunning rugs, including throws, pillows and signed art.

Support local artists and fair trade supporters at Terra Culture by buying artisan-made jewelry, pottery and home accents. And if you have a giftee in need of pampering, stop by Grazia Skin Care Studio and Spa for a gift certificate. And consider treating yourself!

Shopping Specials: Malvern Holiday Madness on Third Thursday, Dec. 17, plus shops are open for Victorian Christmas, Dec. 4–6.

 

A Bit of the Main Line in Wayne

Don’t overlook the bustling Main Line this season. First up, The Eagle Village Shops on Lancaster Ave. let you visit several shops at one stop. For the eco-conscious fashion lover, Element Six has chic yet environmentally and socially responsible clothing with impeccable style. Family-owned Ellie offers contemporary fashion, plus their sales associates double as stylists to give professional advice.

The Little House Shop is a long-time favorite for many, with gifts fit for any occasion—ornaments, candles, stationery and more. Valley Forge Flowers is another gift gold mine with much more than just flowers—art, baby items, pet toys and themed gift baskets to name a few.

Venture over to another eco-friendly shop, Waltzing Matilda, with locally sourced handmade leather and silver accessories. Or visit newly opened Company C for tasteful home décor and entertaining pieces. Finish up at Wayne Art Center for their year-round gallery shop and, starting December 4th, Craft Forms exhibit for stunning pieces from established and emerging artists.

Shopping Specials: Free parking on Small Business Saturdays through December 27. Join them for Wayne Hotel’s Old Fashioned Christmas, Dec. 4–6.

 

More than Food in Phoenixville

It might seem like restaurants dominate the scene here, but there are plenty of shops to discover on your holiday gift hunt! First, take a walk down Bridge Street. You’ll find gifts for music lovers and fans of all things vinyl at Deep Grove Records & Audio and some of the tastiest, decadent treats in town at Bridge Street Chocolates.

For an eclectic shopping experience, head to Diving Cat Studio & Gallery and sift through over 200 artists’ imaginative work to find the perfect gift. Ellie’s Choice Gift & Specialty Items gives off an artsy vibe too, with fragrances, bath and body products, clothing and more for the hippie-at-heart. And Romantic Jewelers has that one-of-a-kind piece among their selection of heirloom jewelry and handcrafted reproductions—in a welcoming Victorian environment.

Main Street is also a must-visit, especially for local fashion. Founded by two friends with a vision, LuLu Boutique & Gifterie is jam-packed with wearable vintage clothing and accessories. With roots online on Etsy, Minx Vintage’s storefront is another treasure trove of vintage goodies, with clothing, housewares, art and assorted curiosities. And don’t forget to stop in Generations Toys for fun and creative gifts for the young and young at heart.

Shopping Specials: Unwrap Phoenixville, “passports” available. Make 5 purchases at participating locations through December 4 to be eligible for prizes! More details here.

And speaking of everything you need, Earth Wood & Fiber truly does have it, from kitchen tools and bar gadgets for foodies to beautiful but useful office items for working professionals.

And do visit Mostardi Nursery to get your friends and family in the holiday spirit, with seasonal flowers, wreaths, trees, stocking stuffers and more.

Kuta offers exclusive handmade jewelry, accessories and clothing from eco-friendly brands, while Earth & State carries an array of local and international designs from pottery, glass and metal work to wood carvings, musical instruments and even fairy wings!

Similarly, Seven Stones is dedicated to promoting fair trade practices, selling authentic Native American jewelry, leather, crafts and more.

For the little ones, skip the chain stores and visit newly opened Simon Says for all kinds of baby and kid-approved gifts from toys, clothing, books and more.

And there’s still no reason to head to the mall when you can visit local women’s apparel shops like Sorella Boutique, Per Lei Boutique and Tancreed’s Specialty Shop for your pick of classic or trendy clothing and accessories at a variety of price points.

If you haven’t been in downtown West Chester in a while, it’s time to get into the holiday spirit, hit the historic sidewalks, and check out new offerings in boutique-land.

Many downtown merchants are helping to make giving gifts that someone actually wants much easier by using Holiday Wish Lists. These helpful lists—complete with the name and location of participating stores—let the wisher write in desired items and then place in a strategic spot for a potential gift giver to discover. Win-win and wishes fulfilled!

Now is the time to explore …

 

New to Town

Brand new to downtown West Chester is Old Soul Décor, 119 W. Market St.; OldSoulDecor.com. The shop, owned by PA Academy of the Fine Arts grad Krystal Reinhard and antique furniture dealer Josh Unruh, occupies a sunny, gallery-like space with walls of bead-board and brick. Period antiques occupy the welcoming gallery space alongside early-1980s furnishings and accessories. The showroom’s specialties include mid-century modern furniture, throw pillows made onsite, and old chairs and settees reupholstered in vintage grain sacks, linen or cowhide. Plus fair-trade Kenyan hand towels, Brooklyn-made soy candles and vintage jewelry.

Another exciting store is Beau Étre, 148 W. Gay St.; BeauEtre.com, the intimate and beautiful apothecary bed and bath store that embodies the essence of cozy comfort and luxurious relaxation. The name means “beautiful being” and captures the spirit of femininity for the modern woman who has a “refined sense of wellness.” You’ll find products like Silvanus, Beau Étre’s very own organic line of body care products customized and formulated right inside the store. With more than a dozen products and 44 scents, the aromatic possibilities are endless.

 

Changes to Check Out

“I have a passion for jewelry and enjoy working with people to help them design or purchase jewelry that fulfills a personal need in their lives,” says Lisa Kaplan, co-owner of Kaplan’s Fine Jewelry, 111 W. Market St.; KaplansFineJewelry.com. A downtown destination for decades, the jewelry store suffered a brief closing after a fire in an adjoining structure, but Kaplan’s is back and open full-time. “I love the feeling that we can offer an expertise that helps define a customer’s momentous occasion and can even become an heirloom passed to future generations,” says Lisa. A goal Kaplan’s achieves every day.

For those who love to browse for treasures, Greene Street Consignment will fill the bill, now at a new location, 106 W. Gay St.; GreeneStreetConsignment.com. Items are seasonal and reflect a wide range of current styles from affordable, quality brands to high-end luxury labels. There are men’s and women’s clothing, jewelry, handbags, shoes and other accessories, so shop, recycle, consign.

Visual Expansion Gallery has also moved to a new location, but it’s only right next door, 132 N. High St.; VisualExpansionGallery.com. It’s there that Mary Manning and Elizabeth Taylor, both professional framers, continue to produce high quality custom framing for art and that family heirloom that can now become the centerpiece of a room. There’s an expanded selection of works from local artists that truly take the Brandywine tradition to new levels. And for your favorite map collector, check out the large selection of regional and local antique and reproduction maps.

After an extensive remodeling that nearly doubled its space and selections, Mainline Custom Clothiers is ready for your holiday shopping, 129 W. Market St.; MainlineCustomClothiers.com. Owner Larry Albert has designed a store for men who desire the best in formal and professional menswear at affordable prices. He offers quality lines for business suits, tuxedos and custom dress shirts by Loro Piana, Robert Graham and Bugatchi for the timeless style and excellent custom fit that will last years instead of a season.

 

Visit Some Favorites

West Chester University’s off-campus gift store, the WCU Ram Shop, 134 N. High St.; WCURamShop.com, has great new merchandise!

Golfers want Titleist Golf Bags, club covers, Ram-faced golf balls and performance golf tees, while tailgaters will appreciate logo chairs, tents, wine glasses and serving trays to be topped off with decadent sea salt caramels—great stocking stuffers. For the student who has it all, you can’t go wrong with the award-winning Ugly Christmas Sweaters!

If you haven’t noticed Chester County Historical Society’s recent improvements, check out the newly expanded patio, the perfect warm-weather party place, and the renovated auditorium for events with up to 200. Check inside for an often-overlooked retail spot, the Museum Shop, with the biggest selection of Chester County-made items including local honey, candles, jewelry and pottery for those holiday wishes. Plus Chester County and West Chester ornaments, mugs and glasses. Is someone on your list a history buff? The museum shop is a treasure trove of books and prints of the history of the Brandywine Valley.
