s an Oak Park residentand loyal shopper of local, independentlyowned businesses,my goal is to keepour neighborhood economystrong by spending my moneyand now, on OakPark.comand in the Journal, by tellingyou about all my finds andsharing yours.Now that we’re heading intothe holidays thereis no better timeto discover thewonderful,warming, tan-talizing shopsand shopkeep-ers we have inOak Park, ForestPark, River Forestand the immediateenvirons.Today in My Holiday Homewe take our first look at great,unique, affordable gifts foryour home.

Dozens andmore dozens of gift ideas fromall sorts of local shops, forevery person on your list willbe displayed.And every day on my blogat Oak Park.com I’m busycreating an exciting place toshop for unique, fun items. The Shoppingand Fashion Blog is designed to introducethe interconnected tribes of those whomake, sell, and purchase local merchan-dise. I will feature items found in commu-nity shops and neighborhood boutiquesthat are innovative, artful, thoughtfullydesigned, and fashion forward. I hopeto create an online communitywhere readers are inspired andshare inspiration.Each week the ShoppingBlog will introduce readersto community merchants viainterviews that sharethe personal storiesof the shopkeeperswe support and tellthe tale of the journeystaken to start theirown businesses.Merchants will sharethe joys and challenges of owningtheir own enterprise. I will alsohighlight novel products withclever details and fine craftsman-ship, including clothing, shoes,accessories, beauty products,and home décor. I will empha-size soulful antique pieces andcharming vintage finds at greatprices by including local thriftshops and antique stores.The blog will include a funcomponent devised to connectreaders via a weekly Street Stylepost: a post that features localresidents as models! Readers willlearn how locals express them-selves creatively and fashion-ably and what trendsthey follow.

Mon-day will always be a GreenDay at the Shopping Blog,a day to smile, where I bringyou all that is eco-friendly. Whatbetter way to start off yourweek than finding a productthat is good for you, good for yourpocketbook, and good to the earth? Organic,recycled, and vintage products will abound;deals and steals are on the agenda as well.Each Wednesday is the Meeting of a GreatMind. You will have the opportunity tomeet an amazing local entrepreneur andstoreowner. Learn of the galvanizing mo-ment of each entrepreneur and how yourfavorite shop came to be. Finally, Fridayswill feature a fantastic find or fashion item.This may include apparel, accessories,house ware, or fun foodie items.
