Canton Arts District: The best place in the world to buy a gift

By Maranda Saling

Looking for the perfect gift? Look no further than the Canton Arts District or damn near close to it- Seriously! Recently Just Imagine, with goods from the Stark County Board of Developmental Disabilities art program, and Colette’s Vintage Clothing Store and Fashion Design Studio opened new store fronts in the 200 block of 6th St NW! We’re also thrilled to welcome Print & Press featuring LetterPress Jess and Little Chicago Clothing Company located at 429 4th St NW officially in May 2016, but at all First Fridays until then! Love the unique items that only museum gift shops offer? Check out the gift shops at Canton Classic Car Museum, National First Ladies Library and Museum and Canton Museum of Art. Did you draw the caffeine junkie of the group in the gift exchange this year? Coffee goodies can be found at Carpe Diem Coffee Shop, Cultured Coffee Company and Muggswigz. Looking to add some bling to your significant other’s jewelry box? Look no further than our own Gasser Jewelers, Julz by Alan Rodriguez or Capestrain Jewelers for that perfect, “No you didn’t!!” gift. Want to thank your co-worker for hosting the Holiday Party? Stop by Canton Flowers and have a beautiful bouquet send their way!

Now we’ve gotten to many peoples favorite item: Clothes! Where does one buy clothes downtown you might ask: Afore mentioned Colette’s Vintage Clothing and Dress No Evil of course! For the active person in your life, stop by Collective Skate/Art/Snow or Downtown Yoga for boards, yoga pants and accessories for varies sports. Per usual, the local talent at the following galleries is overflowing and such a treasured gift for anyone: Journey Art Gallery, Lynda Tuttle’s Art Center, Bliss, Second April Galerie and Studios, The Hub Art Factory and Studios and The Joseph Saxton Gallery of Photography. We all have that person who has everything…. But I guarantee they don’t have everything in Arrowhead Vintage and Handmade Goods or Stoffer’s Market! You can even get furniture here people- Elemental Arts is the perfect stop for quality made, beautiful pieces that are not only functional, but also a topic of conversation! How about treating someone on your list to a Canton Food Tour?

As if you needed another reason to avoid Belden Village. Shop Local in the Canton Arts District this year!
