The season of giving is definitely here and we are all excited to receive and give gifts to our loved ones! If you are looking for unique local gifts in Halifax, here are some stores you might be interested in.
One of the best places in the Halifax area to buy gifts for loved ones, or for yourself, is this neighborhood favorite located at 75 King Street, Dartmouth. The things offered at Kept are sourced both domestically and abroad and range from furniture, jewelry, and paper goods to toys, apparel, and home decor for kids.
Not only is a trip to Kept terrific for gifts, but it’s also a nice way to spend the day. You can grab a coffee from Two If By Sea and spend the day touring downtown Dartmouth after boarding the ferry.
The Independent Mercantile Co. was founded out of a passion for travel, entertaining, decorating, cooking, plants & gardening, parties, and Halifax. In 2014, when Wendy Friedman felt ready to broaden her professional life once more, TIMCo was established. In particular, she felt motivated to establish a community hub in her longtime North End neighborhood.
If you are looking for eco-friendly materials, gift ideas, decors, holiday ornaments, or greeting cards; visit her shop at 2091 Gottingen Street, North End Halifax.
