Holiday Gift Guide 2014 – Part 1

While there's still plenty of time to peruse the neighborhood shops for the perfect gift for everyone on your list, here is a quick look at some of the things I found that might help spark some ideas.

Julie Wedele, the Pastry Chef for Scape and Crepes has hit the sweet spot with "housemade" toffee, caramel corn, and biscotti in Crepes mugs, $6 each. Turtle bark, front, is $3.50, Crepes Strawberry Jam, right, is $6.

When you stop by be sure to study Julie's adorable handmade gingerbread houses in the shop window.  When I asked if she would make them for anyone else, she replied, "No way, these took two weeks!"
