Holiday shopping guide!

I thought it would be fun and useful to run a series of "Holiday Shopping Guide" posts as we get close to Christmas; basically my take on where to go for the best deals, stay local, stay small, and such. But then I figured, there’s no way I can do all that by myself, so let’s make this a collaborative effort.

So send me your suggestions—leave comments here or use the contact form. Where are the best places for holiday/gift shopping? Any type of item—food, books, clothes, whatever. The best deals, the local stores, the insider info, avoiding the big box stores (if possible) and super-spendy stuff.

I’ll organize by topic and start running posts in a few days, both submitted suggestions and my own picks (I have a few).

Let’s make this the definitive holiday shopping guide for Bend!

  1. There’s a great, newer, home interiors shop at the corner of 9th& Wilson… Can never remember the name but they have some nice stuff, some way-too-cutesy stuff… and very reasonable prices!

    I know "Wild Birds Unlimited" (across from Barnes & Noble) is a chain but they seem to be very knowledgeable about the area.

    Are there any locally-owned golf shops left, other than the (cough, overpriced, cough) pro shops at the courses? I think Pro Golf (next to ShopKo) is part of a chain…
