This month, take a look at colorful silk pillows, fun and funky ceramics, fine leather goods, vintage jewelry, beautiful books and great seasonal finds. This is the place in the 2nd Street District to shop for the person who has everything. Bonus: Free gift-wrap!

Finley’s Barber Shop
This is the place to spoil the men in your life (or send them to clean up for holiday gatherings). Your fella can get a facial in an oversized barber’s chair and be pampered with hot towels, exfoliating scrubs, lotions and a facial massage. The Premiere Hair Package includes a massaging shampoo, cut and style, hot lather neck trim and neck and shoulder massage, but the one that won us over? The beard and mustache trim!
