Some of our local favorites (scroll down for SEVERAL more)…
Addie’s Goods – If your loved one has a heart for helping others then Addie’s Goods is the place to shop. This boutique has quality goods handmade by organizations offering economic empowerment & abundant life around the world. There is a personal story behind each crafted item -choose a one of a kind item that’s special to you or your loved one. Women’s clothing and jewelry, journals, children’s items, home décor and more. Located in Crestwood.
Mercantile on Main – This is a store you do not want to pass by in LaGrange. Inside the teal building, you’ll find a mixture of handmade, vintage and repurposed goods. We especially love the bourbon barrel and tobacco stick products. There are great gifts for men, women and children. Grab a delicate Kentucky themed necklace, a set of bourbon glasses or vintage ornament for that special person on your list. Many of the gifts are customizable, too! When you shop here you support several local artisans like Curry’s Beer Crafts, Porch Light Studios and Tobacco Barn Craftsman.
Feed and Seed Depot – Another Crestwood favorite is this small garden and feed center. If you have a gardener on your list, stop in this store. We know it’s hard to think of gardening when it’s so cold outside, but your purchase will be appreciated once the warmer months return. The owners and staff are knowledgeable and friendly and will help you find what you need. They have gifts for non-gardeners also. Pick out some succulents and ask for help making a creative arrangement. These make great hostess or teacher gifts. Their farm fresh eggs and other ingredients can help you make that dish you have to take to the holiday party. Pair the local honey with some tea and a cute mug from one of the other stores listed in this directory.
The Little Kentucky River Winery – They have a variety of wines to choose from for yourself or to gift. Their Oldham County location is in LaGrange, right along the railway tracks on Main Street. A couple of bottles of local wine will be appreciated by your 21 and over friends and family.
Knock on Wood Country Mercantile – We have said it before, but this restaurant/store is a hidden gem in Westport, Oldham County. Their inventory is always changing, but visitors can find great home goods, clothing, jewelry, candles, holiday items, furniture and more! They have a Holiday Open House happening now until 12/25!
The Pink Julep – Head over to Prospect to visit this great boutique. Shoppers will find fashion, Kentucky gifts, small treat items, jewelry, home items, Christmas gifts and more. Check out the fun 2020 ornament below! We have our eyes on one of their beautiful charcuterie boards! You can schedule a private shopping appointment!
