#Shoplocal The Annual Melrose Arts District Holiday Gift Guide Pt. 2: Stocking Stuffers

Thank you for supporting the businesses in the Melrose Arts District. This district has been a unique and vibrant community for more than fifty years, anchored by indie creators and artists who thrived on open doors, seven days a week. These businesses are offering many ways to shop for the holidays – in store (but safely), curbside pickup, gift certificates, and shipping to you or the recipient. We’d love to see you but are committed to getting you what you need in the way that works for you.
So here are some ideas for stocking stuffers for family, friends, co-workers, and even the furry ones in your life.

GOLDEN APPLE COMICS

In Normal Times, Golden Apple Comics is host to incredible in-store events and signings with writers, artists, actors, and more. And there’s a significant selection of autographed items from those events available both at the shop and online.

For the energetically attuned person on your gift list, consider a crystal set from House of Intuition. Carefully curated to match specific intentions (pictured is a set for creativity). These high vibe crystals are much better than lumps of coal.
