Holiday shopping? Support small business!
There's a treasure trove of Delta gems in downtown Clarksdale:
Beautiful large handmade bows, wreaths, bouquets and a wide variety of gifts are always changing at Delta Creations. It's family-owned, with a gaggle of sisters and cousins and mothers behind the counter!
TODAY and next Friday (11/20+11/27) are a Black Friday sale 25-50% off at Joya's Boutique, where Tameal & Josephine are so welcoming and fashion is always fierce.
Willow Botanical & Goods poinsettia and chic holiday plant sales are on fire, and Lori carries other jewelry and gifts that match her chic style.
Nellie May's is always in style, with beautiful men's and women's clothing, home decor and more.
Across the street, Kathy and Katie at Magpie Gift & Art also have gorgeous decor and lovingly curated collections of local gifts.
Collective Seed & Supply Co. is an artist collective and modern general store that curates such cool gifts, you'd think you're big-city shopping: artisan food, fun cards, unique gifts -- and a particularly fine selection of cookbooks right now.
The Hayden G. Hall Art studio is now OPEN for business -- call Erica to make an appointment, or drop in any time Hayden's in his back studio and the door is open.
Across the way on their Back Alley Bar patio, the Bluesberry CAFE is now selling beautiful wreaths handmade by Carol (and modeled here with blues superstar Watermelon Slim). Pick one up and enjoy live music during their Sunday brunch or Monday dinner.
Roger Stolle's Cat Head Delta Blues & Folk Arts is a perennial favorite for books, music, art and other unique finds... and this is the one time of year the "Downhome Chrismas" decor is actually in season!
All are within 3 blocks of each other, from Delta Ave to 3rd Street. And almost all are open weekdays+Saturdays 10a or 11a-2p+ through the holiday season.
