I'm always on the lookout for unique gifts for friends, and I like to shop "local" whenever I can. This week, I happened upon a fantastic, locally-owned gift boutique that offers an eclectic mix of crafts, art, jewelry, fun yet sophisticated housewares, bath and body products, and lots more - and they offer crafts classes and parties to boot! It's called made authentic goods, and it's my new go-to shop for gifts!
All of made's goods are crafted here in the USA, and many are created by local artists. Check out some of their current inventory in the photos below, and take a look at more on Facebook, too. Of course, it's best to stop in and see made in person - it's located in Stone Creek Village in Cary (NW corner of High House and Davis), around the corner from Cafe Caturra. I think this will be a great place for my next girls' night out...
** Make sure you try out the hand lotion (pictured above) while you're there - it's been two hours, and my hands still feel - and smell - great!
