It’s only 2 Shopping Days until Christmas, but still 14 Shopping Days until Three Kings Day (when the Baby Jesus gift giving tradition originated)! Put on those running shoes and hit Downtown Fullerton ASAP.

Strolling down Harbor Boulevard, 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.

122 N. Harbor Blvd., Suite #109

Ever step into a shop where every purchase gives back to a worthwhile cause? Proprietress Lilly Tokuyama fills this giving store with so much love and compassion that you instantly feel purposeful just being surrounded by all that they carry.  Buying a gift for a friend, family member, and even yourself means you are also giving a gift to someone else in the world: a literacy program; displaced women from Uganda; or victims of human trafficking.  Your gift shares a story, and does good at the same time.

122 N. Harbor Blvd, Suite #105

Jeni Havens Maus is the founder of award-winning Found Vintage Rentals. After many years of her clients pleading with her to sell some of her rental pieces she knew that she just had to open up The Found Shop. Much like the Found Vintage Rentals showroom, every piece here is meticulously chosen and curated and feels like it holds a very special story from around the world. Aside from larger items like display etageres, conversation tables, and tufted settees you’ll discover numerous treasures for cooking, entertaining, and creating the coziness of Danish hygge that is all the rage for the home nowadays.

109 E. Commonwealth Ave.

Stitch & Feather, a Dames Market is equal parts style and sass. Their subdued Southwestern motif of teepee and cacti is hip, but welcoming. Proprietor Candi Anderson’s second location out of three also has the unique feature of having a former bank vault as its dressing room.  Accessories, drinking vessels, and flour sack dish clothes are emblazoned with cheeky or inspirational motifs.  Chunky sweaters, soft denim jeans, and flowing kimonos make you feel comfy, but in charge. Need to unwind during a flight? Grab a few Carry On Cocktail Kits for yourself and your friends.

217 N. Harbor Blvd.

Camping ‘R’ Us. For all you outdoorsy types, this is your haven. Co-owners Liz and Oliver Tan describe their outpost as REI meets Urban Outfitters. In essence, they want you to look good while roughing it up. Camping apparel and furniture are design forward and accessories like patches and jewelry promote the love of nature. Escaping from the grips of city life and technology has grown more necessary over the years and Wander Outfitters is packed with everything that you need from portable firepits; cannabis cookbooks; and Go Girl funnels when the ladies need to pee in the wild.
