Our Neighborhood- Historic Downtown Glendale, AZ
We've got special feelings about our neighborhood. We opened our store in Historic Downtown Glendale in 2005 because, when we moved from New York to Arizona, we found that Historic Downtown Glendale is the neighborhood that feels most like home. The neighborhood has a hometown feel- the streets are walkable, we're not another strip mall, the shops aren't generic "mall" stores. Each shop is, an expression of what each shop owner loves, obsesses over & wants to share with the world. From the best cookies you'll get instantly hooked on, to a place to repair your cherished childhood stuffed animal, to the pizza place that allowed a family to build a happy home. Our shops are an expression of what small business owners around the world all feel & do every single hour of every single day. Our shops hold a big piece of our heart & soul with everything we do. Small businesses are what our country is made of, the reason everyone want's to live in America- Small Businesses are the American Dream.
This page is dedicated to our neighborhood- Historic Downtown Glendale, AZ, and all of the American Dreamers who make up our Downtown Glendale Business Community. Come visit & discover for yourselves. Shop Small, Shop Local!
We dream when we're awake and it drives us to create, and when we finally fall asleep at the end of a long day we're happy to know we can get up and do it all again the next day.
Coyote Oatie Located right next door to our shop- our favorite cookies are made here! Try the salted toffee or white chocolate cherry. During the holidays the chocolate peppermint dipped will keep you coming back all season. Yummy teas, coffee & hot chocolate all made with love, family owned and run.
Bears n More Cool collection of toys, vintage, locally made items, and collectible bears. Our favorite thing about this store, other than the vintage dishes, is that you can bring them your childhood bear and they will totally clean him up and restore him back to his youthful self so you can keep loving him for years to come.
Memory Lane Glendale A collection of cool items from hot sauce to garden accessories to kitchen goodies. We love to send our customers here for the cutest baby gifts.
Papa Ed's Ice Cream Serving local made ice cream in the most interesting flavors and fresh waffle cones. Lots of vegan, non dairy and gluten free options too! Located two short blocks up the street from our store.
Pizza Old Roma Being from NY, we're kind of pizza snobs and this place reminds us of home. Stop in for a quick slice and a beer, sit on the patio or order a whole pie for takeout. We like to order ours with extra sauce.
The Spicery Best place for high tea with the gals, you've got to add this place to your lunch rotation with the girls. And definitely keep this place in mind to host baby showers or special birthday celebrations for mum.
Evergreen Center of Oriental Medicine Definitely the place to start your journey back to good health. From tinctures to acupuncture to the prettiest floral wands to smudge your space.
The Cottage Garden This place makes us want to wander throughout, pick up pretty things and wear all the pretty things. Local jewelry and they throw one of our favorite events in the spring: Paris in the Spring. We look forward to this event every year and always score the coolest items.
