Tis the season for Christmas carols, stories of Old Saint Nick, and the joy of giving! It’s also the season to shop local. Gift-giving is twice as nice when it also supports a local business, and here in Chickasaw Country, there are top-notch local shopping options sure to bring holiday cheer. Here are a few on our radar:
For the fashionista in your life, Comanche favorite Red Diamond Fashions offers affordable clothing and accessories to keep your sisters, moms, daughters and galentines in all the latest trends. Owner Jennifer Hinsley has created a true community at her shop, with fun giveaways and events each month that will keep you coming back. Pick up a pair of earrings or cozy sweater for a gift, and don’t forget to treat yourself while you’re at it! We dare you to leave this adorable store without a visit to the cash register.
Looking for something that will stand out under the tree? The Crazy Chick Boutique should be your next stop! This Davis boutique, which opened in September 2019, offers shoppers a wide selection of choices from kitchenware to women’s and children’s apparel. Just in time for the holiday season (and your holiday parties!), Crazy Chick is now offering scents from Okie Candle Co., sure to be a hit with those on your gift list. Stop by during Black Friday and Small Business Saturday on Nov. 29 and 30 for Crazy Chick’s crazy sales!
A true triple threat, The Rockhouse Bakery and Gifts in Dougherty is your one-stop shop this holiday season. A combination coffee house, gift shop and bakery, this sweet spot is the epitome of cozy, making shopping for those on your gift list a fun, rather than frenzied, experience. Give your friends and neighbors the taste of home with Christmas cookies, pies, and cinnamon-spiced treats. Pro tip: feed a crowd by picking up a box of their famous creamy peanut butter cookies for your holiday events this year!
For those with a passion for the farmhouse trend, head to Ya Ya’s Nest in Blanchard. Operated by long-time locals with a passion for quality custom furniture, Ya Ya’s Nest is on the top of our list for one-of-a-kind home goods and Chip and Jo-inspired décor. Their table linens, mugs, and serving ware pieces would make great gifts for the hostess in your life!
