Plan a Local Shopping Spree with Friends at These Trendy Boutiques and Gift Shops

A personal style is often developed over time and often reflects our local surroundings and experiences! The thriving small business community in North Peoria makes it easy to shop locally for your unique style.

Grab Some Gal Pals and Explore!

Starting at Four Corners, pop into Nest Home & Co, one of the largest home furnishing and décor stores in the Northwest Valley. Shop furniture, wall decor, art, lighting and more. The baby and gift sections are pretty spectacular, too.

Next, head south on Lake Pleasant Parkway to 85 Local, where you can shop more than 25 local vendors. This small but mighty boutique hosts an impressive assortment of clothing, home décor, gifts, stationery, baked goods, and jewelry.

Time to Fuel Up?

Cross the street and head into Sala Thai, North Peoria's best Thai restaurant. It offers an authentic menu of noodles, curries, fried rice, and delicious mango sticky rice!

Afternoon Delight

Take a short drive on Loop 101 to get to Signatures, an upscale boutique voted the Valley's "Best Place to Buy Gifts" four years in a row! Discover darling kitchen essentials, adorable gifts for the littles, timeless jewelry, and more. 

Cross the street and pop into Lola Coffee on the corner. This large coffee house offers plenty of tables and a cozy living room-inspired area to hang and reenergize while discussing your local finds!

Walk next door to Haus by Hartman Haus for ultimate inspiration. This modern boutique showcases the small home furnishings and decor favorites by Interior Designer Jessica Hartman.
