THE NEW GIRL’S GUIDE TO ELGIN: 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS: 10 Lords a-Leaping 11 Pipers Piping 12 Drummers Drumming

Tomorrow is the day! Where can you get last minute Christmas gifts?

The Souful Sparrow– Soulful Sparrow is a unique gift and decor shop inspired by artistic, industrial, romantic and re-purposed imagination.  We offer a mix of gifts, jewelry and home decor combined with the time worn warmth of vintage charm.  Many items are handmade or re-purposed featuring the work of the shop owners and local artists.

Elgin Knit– A yarn store with a vintage urban feel located in historic downtown Elgin, in a building dating to 1872 .  Established in 2012, Elgin Knit Works is evolving and always looking to bring in new yarns and fibers. Our focus on supporting independent artists is reflected in our selection of yarn bowls, project bags, stitch markers, shawl pins and unique gifts. While EKW carries a wide variety of yarns, we make it a point to carry American made yarns as well as a variety of companies that are fair trade and non-profit including Kraemer, Manos del Uruguay and Frog Tree

Cocoa Cabana– Hand-dips and creates virtually all of the amazing chocolate products we sell. We have been told by chocolate lovers across the country that there really is a difference in quality, taste, and presentation. We are glad to satisfy so many with our diverse chocolate lineup.

Happy Holidays!
