Gifty Shops

Eric Williams
These shops are a last-minute gifter’s secret weapon with an eclectic selection of items for nearly everyone. They’re the Swiss army knife of butt-saving gifty-ness.

Hours: Tuesday through Thursday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Friday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

OFFCenter is a community arts project that makes art available to everyone—whether you’re creating it or owning it. There is always a wide selection of hand-crafted gifts, including jewelry, paintings and sculpture on display. The latest shop offering is a line of products created from recycled packaging and bags that includes sketchbooks, reading glass cases, wallets, bowls, décor and bookmarks—all for $5 or less.

Nikki Zabicki is known for her iconic Burque belt buckles and has been selling them in local stores for years. Now, she and studio-mate J.P. Rodman have turned part of their space into a gift shop showcasing their wares and the work of other local makers. Get to The Shop to cross several people off your list with T-shirts, vintage clothes, jewelry, handmade housewares and, of course, Zabicki belts.
