ENDANGERED SPECIES: Needless Necessities (2926 N. Henderson, Dallas) is a treasure chest of home accessories and décor – but the next few days will be touch and go for this neighborhood mainstay. In an effort to “Save the Store”, just about everything is now 35 percent off. That means big savings on home fragrances, frames, vases, pillows and a whole lot more. You get great gifts at great prices, and one of our favorite shopping spots will (hopefully) be around for many holidays to come. Everybody wins. Visit needlessnecessities.com for coupon and details.
GET CARDED: Papyrus’ spirited holiday line is now available. Featuring signature embellishments and sophisticated prints, these single and boxed cards, gift wraps and bags are utterly unique. Love the sparkling ornament number (pictured above) and this fuzzy little Santa card, too. And you’ll find a whole lot more where they came from when you shop online or at an area Papyrus boutique.
INNER CHILD: Froggie’s 5 & 10 may be the only place in town where you can pick up a pair of wax lips, a vintage-inspired lunchbox and a rubber chicken all in one convenient location. In addition to these timeless classics, Froggie’s also has holiday cards and stocking stuffers galore – but you probably want to budget a little extra playtime when you visit the Knox Street or West Village locations of this classic gift shop. (Don’t know about you, but we always get sidetracked in the wind-up toy bins.)
