Shop-Local Gift Guide (Part 2)

So far, I’ve been politely rebuffed by three chains—Shinola, J. Crew, and James Perse—that said I couldn’t take a photo without getting approved by the PR reps. Yeah, I’ll get right on that. Anyhow, we have plenty of independent stores (and some chains that will be OK with it) to satisfy the naughty and nice alike. I’ve included items that caught my eye, but there’s a whole lot more at every shop. I wasn’t price-sensitive, so please don’t comment about how expensive something is or I’ll delete your comment.
