The Coolest Christmas – Tinker’s
If you’re anything like me, you’re already freaking out about buying holiday gifts. Even if you’re not like me, you might be thinking about those holiday gifts you’ll need to buy for friends, family and co-workers.
Might I suggest that you check out Tinker’s – a great shop in Richmond that pays extra-close attention to the spirit of the holidays? Have someone to buy for who seems to have everything? Go to Tinker’s. Have someone who has a unique flair? Shop at Tinker’s. I guarantee you’ll find stuff there that you won’t find anywhere else in Richmond. That’s because Sharon – owner of the shop – picks out inventory for her store that is made by people who blend art and function into delightful gift and decoration items.
Tinker’s is a family-owned place. Sharon is there to tell you about where the items come from – who makes them, etc. and her niece makes the extra-special toffee that bears the shop’s name. Award-winning storyteller Slash Coleman is Sharon’s nephew, and he has hands in almost everything at Tinker’s – helping upholster furniture, helping with the marketing, building the Facebook page, and working on the upcoming website.
Tinker’s is located at 2409 Westwood Avenue and is open M-F from 10-5, and Saturdays 10-4. I highly suggest you toddle on over there and check out the holiday decor and pick up some gifts for the more discerning people on your gift list.
