Last minute. Final touches. Do any of the following describe you??

  • Need stocking stuffers!

  1. food
  2. beverage
  3. gifts
  4. toys
Enjoy urban scenes while you eat deliciously prepared foods at Hart's.

ABUNDANCE COOPERATIVE MARKET | 62 Marshall Street, 14607 | FOOD + DRINK + GIFTS
Abundance, tucked off of Marshall Street { after Owl House } and with its own parking lot, is my go-to, small grocery store. I love their products, their deals, their mini-market + cafe, and that I always find every single thing I’m looking for, even if it is different or new!

  • FoodAn abundance of sales! From Abundance Sails { deals until January 6, 2015 } to Coop Deals … make your holiday happy + healthy, while giving back directly to our community.

EAST END

ROC BREWING | 56 South Union Street, 14607 | DRINK + GIFTS
Roc Brewing is 1 of 2 bars in Rochester I can confidently walk into, without anyone else, grab a pint, and drink. Which is exactly what I did this past Friday. The doors open at 5pm. On Friday, I walked in at 5:03 + the bar was packed. Talk about holly, jolly, + merry. Roc Brewing #Rocs it.

  • DrinkNine–nine–beers on tap when I arrived. Glutinous Maximus is gluten-free { and has a 7.1% ABV, holler } + it satiated by taste for the beers I’ve missed so much. Buy any of these beers for someone you love. They will respect you for it. And probably love you back. { Though I make no promises on matters-of-the-heart. }
  • GiftsWhich leads us to … The Greatest Gift Deal of the Century. { Kid not. } The Holiday Grumbler Special. That’s 2 Roc Brewing pint glasses, 1 empty mini-grumbler, + a gift certificate to have that grumbler filled on-tap … for JUST $22!!!!! Oh – then there are the T’s + the hoodies, the glasses + the art. Also ask about the Mug Club. { Which might be kicked … as in full! }
  • Unwind This past Friday, I learned that:
    • Roc Brewing now serves food!!!!!!
    • Roc Brewing serves the best gluten-free beer I have ever
    • Roc Brewing is doing a fundraiser for Verona Street Animal Society { which involves coloring books, it’s only $2, and you know I participated } Roc Gives Back in so many other ways, too.

HART’S LOCAL GROCERS | 10 Winthrop Street, 14607 | FOOD + DRINK + GIFTS
I Heart Hart’s. Hart’s Local Grocers will induce a nirvana-like state, and can best be described (by me) as a Wegman’s – Trader Joes’s – Specialty Market – Trifecta. This grocery, which rests just off East Ave on Winthrop St. and hosts its own off-street parking lot, is captivating. Mesmerizing. My only excuse for just having gone?? I get super excited for things I know I’ll heart … and so delayed gratification. I cannot wait to become a local in Hart’s Local Grocers! 

  • FoodDollop Frosting! I finally found it. As East Ave Wegmans has opted not to carry the gourmet, gluten free/dairy free/soy free/nut free/corn syrup free/organic frostings … I’m much, much elated to find that Hart’s does. Along with a myriad { understatement of the century } locally produced products. In fact, here’s a quick recap of the various food items I heart at Hart’s:
    • great gluten-free selection, along with accommodating other allergies
    • local items in isles + featured at the front, near the cash registers
    • all of your favorite, go-to brands
    • delicious sales
    • a cafe + a deli + a butcher + a coffee shop + a great place to sit, eat, + enjoy the #Roc views!
  • DrinkGet your craft brew here. And your favorite brand name, including a myriad of Rohrbach varieties. Especially delectable for picking up last minute host favors, party gifts, or regular gifts. If you can’t decide upon 1 local brew, check out Hart’s + let their selection entice and suede.
  • GiftsName a local food merchant in Rochester. They probably also sell at Hart’s. From Eat Me Ice Cream to Ouzon Soda to Hedonist Artisan Chocolates to Fuego Coffee to Coffee Connection to Dollop Frostings … that’s not even a fraction of your options. Hart’s is a 1-Stop-Shop, + it will mend any aching hearts you might have incurred throughout this holiday season. { This matter-of-the-heart, I do guarantee. }
Dollop frostings! Local products featured in the front + sold throughout the store.

#roc the holiday

ONE STOP

#shoplocalroc

SPOTS

{ Loud. Smelly. Crowded. Over Priced. Parking. … I don’t like the mall. Still, the 1 most common myth associated with #ShopLocal is this – It’s not a 1-stop-spot. Untrue! The proximity of diverse shops + merchants found while shopping local rivals any “convenience” the mall offers. Take this Holiday Bazaar + this South Wedge main drag as proof. }

local convenience

50-52 Public Market Way (above Cure at the Public Market – Facebook)

No to the Mall: What is so “convenient” about shopping at the mall??

  1. Parking – excessively far.
  2. Finding your Car – a chore.
  3. Stores + Food – at opposite ends of 4 different wings.
  4. Loud Nosies – It’s loud, and some stores really smell!
  5. People – Inherent traffic laws of “left + right” seem not apply.

Yes to Shop Local: Shopping Local maximizes convenience while creating experience.

  1. Parking – Never more than 1 { 2 at most } city blocks away.
  2. Finding your Car – glance at street name + intersection: voila.
  3. Stores + Food – all in a row, and { as with bazaars } all in the same space!
  4. No Loud Nosies – played-out music + smells do not dominate the air waves.
  5. People – Joyfully + contently peruse shops and stands in merriment + harmony.

HEDONIST ARTISAN CHOCOLATES | 672 South Avenue Rochester, NY 14620 | FACEBOOK

Ice cream, sorbet, + chocolate to be, exact. Let’s be clear – this isn’t just any sweets shop. This is down-and-dirty gourmet. With almost a decade in the South Wedge, I wouldn’t expect anything less. Truly, Hedonist Artisan Chocolates, owned by Jennifer, lives up to the jovial + rascal-like implications of its name. … Food allergies, you say? Hedonist offers options, including dairy free! At Hedonist, you will find:

{ Mom always deserve the best of the best. Especially when it comes to gifts. Mom deserves timeless. Mom deserves elegant. Mom deserves beauty. … But let’s be honest – Who has time to shop for + find such perfection?! … You do. This holiday, don’t let time get in the way of giving mom a gift that takes her breath away. }

Sara Silvio Jewelry. Handcrafted from metal, glass, stone, + wire – local artisan Sara Silvio infuses every piece of custom jewelry with the same tender, love, + care our moms give to us. That’s why, I say, give mom Sara Silvio Handcrafted Jewelry!

From the work: i collection. { Ancient + Modern. }

adornment is a way to say we feel
confident, beautiful and comfortable with ourselves
.”

Take it from me. Two years ago, I attended my first trunk show at Peppermint to the joy of meeting Sara Silvio + her jewelry.

I knew they’d make my mom feel special.

WHY: Why is this notable?? My mom truly + honestly doesn’t love jewelry. She’s just not that kind of lady. Yet I still felt compelled to purchase a pair of drop stone earrings, handcrafted by Sara Silvio, because I knew they were special. SSJ emanates it.

Momsly’s favorite gift that year?? Sara Silvio earrings. What does Momsly still wear almost every single day, 2 years later?? Sara Silvio earrings.

{ Similar to the earrings I bought my mom! }

{ Similar to the earrings I bought my mom! }

{ At least } Three reasons set Sara Silvio jewelry apart from the rest + make it the gift to give mom this holiday.

Sara Silvio Jewelry
is Art.

  1. Time. If you’re crunched for it, do like mom – don’t sacrifice quality + thought! Moms always get us exactly what we want … and cook our favorite holiday meals, to boot. How?? Moms have secrete weapons. This holiday, Sara Silvio is yours. Browse her website for:
  2. Adornment, Elegance, + Emotion. Since the age of 8 + with travels through Ecuador, San Francisco, New York City, and more, Sara Silvio has practiced, honed, + perfected her craft. Silvio reveals how “The ritual, the emotion, the intention,” behind SS jewelry create more than sheer beauty. Sara Silvio Jewelry breathes purpose + life onto + within us.
  3. Availability. You can see + purchase Sara Silvio Jewelry in person. In fact, you can even purchase SSJ while ticking other gifts off your list, as well. Sara Silvio Jewelry is sold at:

{ Compliments of Shandi Rine. }

Pssst. Did you know there’s a secret to buying the best gifts? It’s the Won’t-Buy-It-For-Myself factor. And it’s powerful! Check it:

  • Ever see something while shopping for yourself + think – YES. But you never buy it.
  • Even better, you say – That’d be a perfect gift for me! { You know you have. }

The It Factor. That’s exactly what these boutiques + artisan have and are. The pieces + items that your family + friends always want, but never buy. Think about it:

  • You find a $20 necklace but don’t want to shell-out the fancy cocktail money? You say – Maybe next time.
  • You gravitate toward seasonal accessories + think – I love it! But what if I don’t wear it next year?
  • What about the piece that enhances your surroundings? – It’s not something I need, you say.

ssshh:
this is what makes a gift giver great!

The It Factor is the Won’t-Buy-It-For-Myself factor. And that’s what makes a gift giver great! When you can identify that 1 gift a friend really loves, but would never buy herself – buy it. Trickiest thing? Not buying one for yourself, too!

fear not!
guilt-free shopping

At these 3 #ShopLocal spots in #Roc – you will find It factor gifts. Great thing? They’re so affordable … you buy something for you, too! { Guilt. Free. }

“affordable, + a really high end look”

Five ways to shop Fahsye this holiday season? Here we go!

IMG_9770

CAN’T GO WRONG – Shopping for mom, your grandmother, or your girlfriend … you can only go right.

  • Thai Sterling Silver
  • David Yurman-esque { classic, on-trend, affordable }
  • Let 1 piece stand alone, buy a set, or mix-and-match … you cannot go wrong.

IMG_9789 IMG_9790

GO TO – Fun, trendy, whimsical, and on-point … these crowd pleasers get people talking.

  • Handmade for a handcrafted, unique look
  • Less Expensive { starting around $15! }
  • ROC jewelry – handmade, at every price point

You know that really picky girlfriend? Pick up one of these treasures. … You’ll thank me.

  • Scarves – classic, elegant, whimsical, warm, + on-trend { chicks love scarves }
  • Unique – handmade jewelry from Thailand that cannot be found elsewhere
  • ROC jewelry – share a piece of Rochester history + nostalgia with one-of-a kind designs

Showing-off when gift giving can backfire. Not with these selections! Plus, what’s more impressive than looking like you’ve barely even tried … .

  • Handmade – There’s something elusively everlasting about one-of-a-kind, handcrafted jewelry that cannot be found anywhere else. { Get on that. }
  • Seasonal – Snowflake earrings. They’re precious +, in upstate NY, they help us love the snow just a little bit more. { Every bit counts. }
  • Trend – Druzy! Fahsye carries real druzy + faux for all price-points and gift giving occasions. Druzy is both elegant + street smart – it compliments and completes any look. { It’s good. }

What’s more romantic than buying a one-of-a-kind, handcrafted sentiment?? Answer – Nothing.
