Strolling down East Commonwealth Avenue, we stopped into several retail shops to gaze upon all the wonderful things that they have for the 2017 Holiday Season. Here’s a preview of what you can expect when you visit them for yourselves.

109 E. Commonwealth Ave.

At Atelier Mela you’ll find bespoke millinery creations by proprietress Mela Hoyt-Heydon. Treasures such as vintage jewelry from her grandmother’s collection and whimsical cufflinks and pocket watches will definitely catch your fancy. Dapper Day attendees are regulars at this shoppe and we hear that men’s chapeaus are especially in demand.  In their back room, sewing classes have become more and more popular.

111 E. Commonwealth Ave.

Jenny B. Floral Design is Jennifer Bernard’s creative studio. Holiday decor and ephemera abound in this charming space. Find seasonal Christmas antlers; country bakeware; homespun ornaments; and cozy, embroidered throw pillows. Jenny’s main gig is designing floral arrangements for special events such as weddings. You’ll often find her in the back office consulting with a client.

Long-standing business in Fullerton, Roadkill Ranch has maintained their strong following and with good reason. Julie Rasmussen’s siamese twin boutiques offer everything from rockabilly to boho and everything in between. Grab a world-famous Pendleton shirt for your guy or head-turning dress for your gal. Fall in love with the alluring scents of Voluspa candles and fragrances. Sweaters for the cooler nights will pair perfectly with your favorite jeans. Accessorize your outfit with scarves, pendants, bangles; and the most diva handbag.

Shopping can be exhausting and what better way to cool your heels than with a wine break. Dena Bravo-David’s intimate retreat opens midday at 3pm, with Happy Hour lasting until 6pm. Weekly wine pairings are held every Tuesday evening and there’s live music on Sunday afternoons. For the holidays, enjoy a voluminous glass of their addictive-like-crack Mulled Wine  for $9 or take home a kit for $15. You’ll also want to inquire about their Wine Club which entitles members to special events and discounts.

Lux Aveda Salon/Spa is Fullerton’s indulgent sanctuary. As soon as you walk in, the scent of Aveda plant-based products instantly transport you to a place of soothing calm. Established in 1999, Director of Care Wade Zylstra makes sure that the salon’s focus of beauty and wellness always has the environment in mind. Professional stylists are overseen by Artistic Director James Cook, who himself has been lauded for his master cuts. Ready for more pampering? Spa services include luxurious facials and massages.
