In a Walmart dominated world, holiday shopping has become homogenized. The unexpected becomes the a thing of the past and the big predictable brand predominates. But every once in a while you run across something very unique. For anyone reading this, it is probably too late for me to making suggestions as to where to buy that last minute gift for Christmas Day. But you may have some people that you still have to shop for after the holidays. If you live in Westchester NY, and have a yen to find something truly unique…try Whimsies in Tarrytown on Broadway. You can tell by their window display that they are not your same-old, same-old. I took this picture on the 22nd. Its a great store with a character all its own. It also has something for just about anyone. And while you are there, if there is a four-footed friend on your list, try Bark and Meow. Its just a couple of stores down towards Main St. from Whimsies and it has everything a cat or dog could wish for and then some.
Local merchants make a community what it is and shopping LOCAL using local merchants – keeps more money in your local community.
Happy Holidays Everyone!
