Endorsement: Swag Boutique in Philly!

I just love the hip Philadelphia boutique Swag, located in the latest trendy neighborhood, Northern Liberties!  What a great place for gifts and stocking stuffers!  My sister Sheryl and I had a great dinner one evening at Bar Ferdinand and decided to walk off the several rounds of tapas and signature drinks that we had. (Sidebar: For a great meal at reasonable prices in a fab Spanish atmosphere, check out Bar Ferdinand!  They make a wonderful Sangria too!)  If you are like me, you are always trying to find that fun affordable gift that will stand out above all others. You want your friends or family members to be talking about it long after the holidays! This is the place to get that fun, creative gift with flair.  Swag has office and housewarming gifts all about whimsy and fun, not to mention a great selection of pieces made by local artists and crafters.

A couple of my favorite items I either bought or admired include:
Nesting doll measuring cups:s
Daily Mood Pads showing 47 moods you can pick from to match your day:
Herb plants in a bag:    
Chopsticks kids:

Spilt Milk Bowl:    
Sake bomb sake decanter:

The proprietor of the boutique, Mey Shou, is very nice and goes out of her way to help you.  She runs the boutique with her husband Tom. As the website states, "Our gifts are all works of art in their own right." but it truly is a fun place to shop after lunch or dinner in NoLib. Don't live in Philly? Check out their website: http://www.swagphilly.com/. It's easy to navigate, has great descriptions and pics, and reasonable shipping! I have also included a link on my blog to theirs: http://www.swagphilly.blogspot.com/.  They are also on Facebook at SWAG Boutique.

Swag Boutique is located at:

935 N. 2nd Street
Philadelphia, PA, 19123
(267) 888-7246
