When you shop Cherry Street, definitely don’t miss Dolce Vita for fabulous women’s clothing and accessories, including a beautiful line of made in Tulsa jewelry.
Be sure to visit the rejuvenated Kendall-Whittier district for one stop shopping. The homegrown husband and wife duo of Jo and June not only provide a well-curated selection of vintage treasures, but craft one-of-a-kind wares in house. Across the street, enjoy the unparalleled experience of The Floral Bar by Ever Something, a partnership of two Tulsa moms with impeccable taste. There, you can be involved in the creation of a fresh flower bouquet or arrangement, perfect for surprising the holiday party hostess. Stop in Hoot Owl Coffee for a caffeine boost and to pick up a locally roasted treat for the coffee lover on your list. Mark your calendars for “Christmas in Kendall-Whittier” holiday pop up market Saturday, December 12th 11-6pm.
Channel your inner Sugar Plum Fairy and give the gift of sweets. The Brady Arts District boasts T-Town’s premier scratch bakery, Antoinette Baking Co, and artisan chocolate shop, Glacier Confection. Coworkers and even “the guy who has everything” are sure to be delighted with macaroons, gourmet cookies, pies and truffles.
Tulsa’s historic Deco District showcases Okie Crowe and Made: The Indie Emporium Shop, both nestled in the stunning Philcade Building.
