It was a holiday gift giving extravaganza last weekend at The Rooster Cottage Consignment Gallery. The Mesquite Boutique held its Fall Open House and Customer Appreciation Day on Saturday, November 19, and there was plenty for almost any holiday shopper.
The public was warmly welcomed and each participant received a red Christmas gnome or a glass angel as a gift for their Christmas tree.
A variety of products, including watercolors, oil paintings, Southwestern design objects, unusual clocks and more, were displayed on the walls of the shop. Handmade walking sticks, purses, bags and knitted hats with fur pom poms on top were among the many quirky gifts on display.
It would be difficult to choose from the wonderful scented candles, soaps and lip balms available.
Comfortable and inviting sofas with decorative pillows were favorites of the men in the crowd. Many wooden tables and chairs in various styles were decorated with ceramic tableware or centrepieces. Wind chimes and glass birds or decorative colored beads could be hung on the porch for accents.
And don’t forget pet gifts: cute and colorful items could be found for them too.
The back room of the shop was 50% off items and picture frames and coaster sets were 25% off.
All customers received a bag of Danielle’s white chocolate popcorn and bottled water.
Dana and Carol and their staff have done a great job of making every area of the store attractive and inviting. If you missed it, you’re always invited to come see the unique gifts available at the boutique at 748 West Pioneer Blvd.
