8 Boutiques in 8 Days

  Time is ticking away and Christmas Day is almost here! If you are like me, most of your shopping is done, except for the few on your list who are near impossible to shop for. This special person already has everything they want or need; or perhaps they prefer gifts that are hand made, one of a kind, original. They have all the cool gadgets and gizmos, but what they don’t have is that special treasure that could only come from you. The gift that says, “I heard you” and “I see you”. Time is quickly passing and although you may be creative, time to whip something together is dwindling.

We at ARTAZINE are all about creativity, so we hit the pavement in search of the best treasure boutiques around. What we found was 8 stores, all within a three mile radius that are brimming with handmade, one of a kind gifts, and all at very reasonable prices!
Below is your treasure map of local galleries and studios that feature regional fine, handmade art and treasures for that special person on your list, and they have regular hours! 
Below is a preview of some of the fabulous work we saw on the road, and below that is your shopping itinerary!
Have a very Merry Christmas from ARTAZINE! - Stay Creative!

  1. Yeah! I love the idea of shopping locally and supporting our local artists and keeping our money in our own communities, instead of buying a bunch of sweatshop produced items and wasting money!

  2. Thank you ARTAZINE!

    Haven Art Studios is a new ART SHOP in the downtown of Redding at 1348 Market St. Suite 101 in the Historic Sherven Building (across from Crown Camera).

    We are grateful for this opportunity to create art and beautiful gifts for all our friends. Our location is easy to find through the double doors on the ground level, under the golden chandelier.

    Hope you all have a Happy Holiday!
