The Gift Guide: It’s Not Only Shoes at The Little Shoebox!

0 Written by: | Saturday, Dec 13, 2014 10:30am

The Little Shoebox raised the bar on the Baltimore retail shoe scene when it opened almost a decade ago. Now it’s doing for gift giving what it did for shoes! With its exclusive lines and unique selections, the gifts at The Little Shoebox are sure to please.  (Read our interview with the owner, here.) Check out some of our favorites below…

Coir Reindeer - These decorative pieces for the home are made in Scandinavia and come in large, medium and small sizes.  Use them to decorate your home or to give as a hostess gift!

The Gift Guide: Treasures from Halcyon House Antiques

0 Written by: | Friday, Dec 12, 2014 4:30pm

It’s Christmastime and time to get to Halcyon House!  A bountiful array of gifts awaits: chunky necklaces, stylish roomy bags, elegant scarves, spiffy umbrellas, chic coffee table books, all you need for the tree, the table, the bar and more. And don’t forget to stock up on savory or sweet treats for your favorite hostess, or grab some for yourself to have on hand for guests.

Visiting Halcyon House feels like entertainment. There is always so much to take in, from the artful way they arrange a tabletop to the glorious way they decorate the tree! Incidentally, it’s a great place to take out of town guests, not only for a glimpse inside the store, but also for the beautiful drive. Just looking at Halcyon House is fun, but bring your plastic.  You’ll want a few things, guaranteed!

It’s no wonder the selection stands out.  As owner Jonathan Gargiulo told me, everything in the store is something both he and co-owner Stiles Colwill likes and would have in their own home or buy for their own friends. It shows.

See some of the stand outs below…

Eat, Santa! Delicious treats and more. From left to right: toffee covered nuts, red hurricane lamp – sold as a pair (also in green), decorative tabletop Christmas trees, small platter, Heritage shortbread, Toffee to Go in dark, milk and white chocolate (it sold out last year!). Read More →
