You want to give something special this holiday season – maybe something a little unusual. Maybe something that doesn’t come in every size and color on the planet. Maybe something that has a connection to where you are.

We can help.

Take an online spin through our CLT Made stories, about artisans and designers producing unique pieces right here, some with shops, some on etsy.com, some whose work shows up in area boutiques and museum gift shops. (As always, if you know someone we should know, email us.)

Help us deliver journalism that makes a difference in our community.

Our journalism takes a lot of time, effort, and hard work to produce. If you read and enjoy our journalism, please consider subscribing today.

Then check out this handful of locally owned shops with a unique perspective, and three walkable, shoppable streets around town. (Mind you: Charlotte has plenty of other options, from the internationally known Capitol to clusters of boutiques near SouthPark and other area malls.)

Then check this list of holiday markets coming up.

(Don’t forget: Small Business Saturday is Nov. 25...)

And get going.
