Bunnies, Chicks & Eggs!
The countdown to Easter has begun and now is the time to get the best selection of gourmet candies for your Easter baskets. Montrose Candy Co. (2317 Honolulu Ave.) is doing their custom Easter baskets French style. Brightly woven, tall handled baskets are filled with a plush bunny with your choice of candies enrobed in cellophane, and finished off with French ribbon and tulle. Tres magnifique!
If it’s decorative bunnies you’re after, Mountain Rose Gifts (3808 1/2 Ocean View Blvd.) has them hopping all around the store. Some are sophisticated rabbits dressed in opulent satin attire, others are circus bunnies and chicks ready to amuse us, then there’s the down home farm rabbits hanging out with the sparkly, vintage, feminine ones. Look closely and you’ll see these are displayed on lace table toppers embroidered with spring eggs. Treat yourself and enjoy spring!
Lara’s Gifts (2259 Honolulu Ave.) is a treasure box of unexpected finds. Upon entering you will find that special something that you didn’t know you needed but have to have. Pictured here: The cutest little fluffy chicks are just what you need to kick your Easter basket up a notch. Or how about a brightly colored, jeweled, felt tulip, so happy and so novel. Are those spring teaspoons I see tucked away? Gotta have one of those! It’s the little things you’ll find in our one of a kind stores that will bring joy to your heart. Explore Montrose this Easter season and thank you for shopping small stores and keepin’ it local.
