You know when you're shopping with a girlfriend and you come across a store that has you simultaneously cracking up and uttering "wait, come look at this!"? Other customers end up catching your infectious laughing & pretty soon you may as well just whip up some cocktails because everyone is now friends? Yeah, that's Gabby's Gifts!
Last time I was in the area, they sadly were closed (sign posted for family emergency). I'm sure someone was just waiting to call the cops as I all but pressed my face against the glass & took pictures of the great stuff I want to come back to see.
I love the wood "tags" and I'm really hooked on the painted locker door!
Gabby's has whimsical yet thoughtful gifts for everyone on your list: kids, sisters, moms, best-friends, even a few ideas for Father's Day.
Family-owned and open since 2007, Gabby's Gifts has a sister store in Galena. So, you can stay local, have lunch at Lemon Tree Grocer & hit Gabby's...or take a little girls' weekend roadtrip & hit the Galena store!
If you make it to Gabby's before I do, hands off the locker!
What's your favorite roadtrip for a girls' weekend?
