Shop local and you’ll not only support our community’s economy you’ll benefit personally by buying some of the most unique, creative products that your family and friends will appreciate.
From an economic standpoint, the money you spend here stays here, which not only helps to keep jobs local but strengthens the tax base, too. Local businesses are owned by community residents and employ people who live and invest in our community.
Save time and gas money by staying nearby. Your time is valuable, so instead of putting miles on your car and heading to the mall, drive in either direction on Rte. 14 (now that the construction is completed) and pick out some great gifts.
Our local Crystal Lake businesses offer a wide variety of products and services. Step away from the big box and chain stores to discover distinctive products. How about some Celtic treasures at Maggie's Irish Imports where you’ll find the luck of the Irish in jewelry, clothing and music? Tradewind Cove is a destination in which you may spend many hours. Get lost in its huge selection of Birkenstocks, funky jewelry, T-shirts and skateboards.
Stay green and reduce even more gas consumption; park on Williams Street and take a walk, window shop or meander in and out of the stores. Everyone’s friendly so take your time. La Bellissima carries elegant lingerie as well as cozy, eco-friendly sleepwear. Exclusively Napa is not just for a quick nosh. Stop in to peruse the international wine selection.
Out of the Box may be your one-stop shop to help Santa with stocking stuffers, from jewelry, purses and baby gifts to slippers, scarves and home accents. Are you looking for a gift for the athletes in your life? Ask the pros at the Running Depot or Wheel Werks for ideas. Go ahead, keep walking and burn more calories as you amble down Williams Street. From Thomas Tails Pet Products and The Clothes Gallery to Lulu’s and the Flag Store, feel Crystal Lake’s home-town, friendly character.
It’s not always easy to find a sacred space in the middle of town, but open the door to Evolve and you’ll enter to find healing gifts of crystals, candles, music and books.
If you feel a little bit country then take a short trip through Crystal Lake’s back roads and enjoy the bucolic views en route to Ridgefield. Enjoy the ambiance and country charm as you browse for antiques, floral gifts and framed prints at Country Church Antiques, the Framery and Renee’s.
Local businesses are staffed by people who get to know you. Take your time to get to know and appreciate them.
