Favorite Things – Part 2

Fleurish ink’s Faves – Part Deux!

Hey there, gorgeous gifters! As promised, here’s part two of Fleurish Ink’s favorite things list! These local, women-owned businesses are among our top go-to shopping spots for fabulous finds– at any time of the year!

Artware: (Abington, PA) You can check so many people off your list at this adorably-chic boutique. Owner Becky LaPierre curates a unique selection of jewelry and gifts, and her ‘Lunchtime Live’ Sales make it oh-so-simple (and entertaining!) to shop from your computer!. We’re fans of the embellished vintage clothing, but the InBooze Infusion Kits ($23) are clutch! And if you love Ah’dorned Bags– Artware has those, too.

Handmade kits to infuse your booze. Each kit makes 8-10 cocktails.

Dorset and Pond: Owner and interior designer Alicia Tiberio has an eye not only for the beautiful, but also the inspirational. So she’s been expanding DP’s collections of home goods and furnishings to include unique, eco-friendly pieces that also facilitate the empowerment of women. Handmade treasures like the Gunnar Leather Tray ($128, ships free), which is made by, and supports the efforts of, artisan women in Senegal. A star on our list, this tray is versatile in design and function— for it serves-up accessories or appetizers with style and sentiment!

This Little Gallery: (Jenkintown, PA) Nestled in the heart of a quaint town’s walkable shopping district, TLG always has artful must-haves in store. Owner Trish Miller carefully selects handcrafted (primarily in America) jewelry, as well as giftable home goods and accessories, like fabulous Fingerless Cashmere Gloves ($38). Made from repurposed material, these cuties take cozy to cool. And yes, we both wear and gift them, often! 

Lovebirds Boutique: (Wayne, PA) Talk about wow factors! We’re obsessed with pretty much everything in this shop! But if we have to pick just one, then the prize goes to the cool (and hysterical) Quarantine Collection. We’re all grads of the 2020- school-of-hard-knocks, so these ‘college’ sweatshirts ($50) are sure to fit everyone on your list!

Robertson’s: (Philadelphia, PA) Blooming with gifts and goods beyond flowers, Robertson’s in Chestnut Hill is one of our traditional holiday shopping destinations! To be honest, it’s actually a stop on our travels every time we’re on (or nearby!) the Hill! And being the fine Philly Phans that we are, Parcel Island’s pretty Philly Special print with it’s fine lines and delicate details… makes us cheer with glee!

Roost: (Ambler, PA) Owner Megan Sullivan has created a destination for beautifully-curated home accessories and furnishings in a range of prices and styles. And we’re obsessing over the Boozy Teacups ($11.50)  They’re not just pretty, but they’re pretty-funny! And if you’re buying for bambinos, check-out her sister shop Swaddle!

Pinkys Up! Boozy teacups are a smashing gift.
