For today, I present three favorite places in my town -- Sacramento, CA. Happy shopping to our local readers!
Pulp Papery, at 3020 H Street, is having a fabulous 50% off everything in the store sale this weekend. The sale runs from 10 am to 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday, July 18th and 19th. You can stock up on wrapping paper, holiday cards, and more! They also have a fanstatic assortment of invitations and birthday cards.
William Glen, located at 2651 El Paseo Lane, is your one stop shopping destination for fabulous home and kitchen products. You can also find gifts for just about any recipient imaginable. One of my favorite items from the store's website is the fabulous baby flatware set pictured above. This set would make a perfect gift for the newest baby on the block.
If you're over on J street, be sure to stop in to Koukla Kids, This children's boutique has unique clothing, shoes, accessories, and gifts. They carry a nice selection of See Kai Run shoes and a wide variety of the Tea collection clothes -- two of my very favorite lines if I am looking to splurge on something special. It's located right next to a few coffee places, a cupcake store, and a frozen yogurt shop so buy some clothes or gifts and get a treat for yourself too!
So there you have it, three local jems in Sacramento. Which city will be next?
