I am all about efficiency. When I have errands to run, or gifts to buy, I love it when I can snag everything on my list at one good spot. Easy parking, no long lines, in and out! That’s honestly why I love coming to The Foundry Collective in Old Town Clovis.
Just off of the main Pollasky Avenue drag, this gem of a boutique is filled with clothes, gifts, toys, baby swag, and all things vintage and shabby chic (check out Joanne’s recent story on this Old Town shop). I can always find a gift here for any person or occasion–plus, I just love to browse around, with a coffee in hand.
Today, I am on the hunt for Valentine’s Day gifts. Ah yes, the day of love, the holiday of Saint Valentine (and also a good excuse to go on a date and eat copious amounts of chocolate!). The Foundry is all cute, sweet, and decked out for V-day, shelves are filled with good gift ideas, and homestead must-haves! There is something for everyone on your candy-coated list, check out some of my great finds…
For the girl who has it all: ring dishes, $4.95 each! These sweet little trinket holders make the perfect gift for a sister, a co-worker, a cousin, or a girl who seems to have everything (but needs something to put it all in!). Tons of letters, quotes, even a Mr. & Mrs. dish for the newlyweds in your life. Super cute, and just the right price.
For the babe in your life: wire heart mobile, $19.95. This little piece is so perfect for any baby’s room, and under $20 you can’t go wrong. Little clips hang from the wire hearts, where you can hang polaroids, postcards, or fingerpaint art from the kiddo in your life.
For the hopeless romantic: this Thai Lily eau de parfum, $27.95, is packaged in a most beautiful watercolored box, and fragranced with bali mango, asiatic lily, and teakwood. You can find a fun selection of lotions and sprays, too. A fresh scent for a new season, and just the thing for that romantic on your list!
For the jewelry lover: gold bangles, $25. These solid brass bangles are perfect for stacking, or to pair with a favorite watch. Who doesn’t love a good shiny thang on V-day anyway? Have it engraved with a heart, a quote, or a special date, for that extra touch.
For the mixologist: moon and stars goblets, $8.95 each, antiqued silver bottle opener, $11.95. This bold green set of vintage glass goblets is decorated with moon and star shapes, and makes a great gift for the wine or cocktail lover in your life! Toss in a bottle opener and a bottle of vino or your favorite schnapps, and love day is made.
For your handsome: shaving and grooming goods, from $14.95. Duke Cannon Supply Co. makes these amazing grooming products for men, now being sold at The Foundry! And what woman doesn’t love a man with a close shave? Choose from Beardsman’s Clear Shaving Gel (which says it “smells like victory”), their “Big Ass Brick of Soap,” and a few other men’s products from this line.
So, cheers to another lovey-dovey Valentine’s Day, filled with chocolate cherries, a dozen roses, and the perfect gifts for all!
