Shop Small OKC // Gift Guide #4 plus GIVEAWAY
I'd be remiss if mentioning the importance of shopping locally without highlighting three MAJOR ways to accomplish this. There are some wonderful initiatives sprouting up all around Oklahoma City, many of which will host the shops I've alluded to all week!
1. The Holiday Pop-Up Shops: Holy Adorable. These little igloo-looking domes house a weekly rotation of shops starting now through the week of Christmas. They are situated right next to Bleu Garten in Midtown, have refreshments, a million photo opportunities, and even sell real Christmas trees! Check out their schedule of shops and follow them on Instagram here.
2. The Winter Shoppes at the Myriad Gardens: Let's talk about atmosphere and activities! Inside the cozy shopping area are plenty of booths displaying local goodness that's available for purchase, a coffee bar, and right outside is the Devon Ice Rink! Make some memories and pick up a gift for your hard-to-buy-for-but-you-still-kinda-love-her sister. Follow them on Instagram here.
3. Deluxe Market: A mecca of local makers. Located on the Fair Grounds, this festive shopping opportunity has free admission and will boast some of the best, smallest businesses around that really get a great chance to show their stuff here. Find someone that's brand new as well as the folks who are really making a go of it in Oklahoma City. Follow them on Instagram here.
