    I’m so excited for Little Boxes! I always shop small/handmade during the holidays, and I’ve never actually shopped on Black Friday cause it seems like the most hellish experience I can think of being anywhere near a big box store on that day, so I’ve always avoided it completely. But now that I have an added incentive to shop small on that day, you can best believe I’m gonna be getting my bootay out there!

    I like to start my holiday shopping right here in my hood, and in Montavilla my favorite spot for gifts is Branch & Birdie! I’d take my mister with me to not so subtlety hint at all the things I wouldn’t mind ending up in my stocking. And then I’d pick up a little something for all my favorite ladies- Anna carries the best candles, perfumes, pouches, nail polish, scarves, tea towels, jewelry and so many little things that are perfect for all the females on my list.

    Then we’d stop at Por Que No for a bean and rice bowl, to fuel up before hitting Presents Of Mind, which is my go-to place for cards and little gifties and stocking stuffers, like funny notepads and cute key covers and cool books.


    Then I’d have to drop the mister back off at home before heading down to Sellwood to shop for him! First to Stars Antique Mall to find some vintage toy cars for his collection, and maybe a cool old film camera cause he’s been into shooting film lately. Then I’d head over to Sock Dreams to nab some warm wooly socks for his stocking, some nice cashmere ones for a few friends, and if some fingerless gloves, totally not for me, I’m shopping for gifts here people, happen to fall in my basket on accident- so be it.

    And then I’d head up the 99E, to Burnside to head east towards home, stopping off at Lille Boutique on the way for, okay, a gift for myself. Cause momma’s been needing some new bras for a loooong time and I’ve never been in there before but would love to finally have the chance to treat myself a bit, with a discount!

    And that’s about all the shopping this girl could handle in one day, so then it’d be time to snuggle up on the couch with my cats, my mister and a pint of Cannoli ice cream (thank you Ben & Jerry’s.)

    Thank you so much, Jena!  This sounds like a perfect shopping route for LB!
