HERE’S THE HOLIDAY SCOOP…
2687 Main Street, Glastonbury
There is just something so special about Katz Hardware during the holiday season. The old school exterior, wooden floors, small shop vibe and hometown feel...we are obsessed. And, this year, they have some true goodies for men, women, or pretty much anyone on your list. The portable mini pizza oven is a unique must have for the cooking enthusiast in your life. There are new, utility style belts for men that have a magnetic clasp and flexible band to give a little extra "room" around the waist during eating season. For mom...they have wooden picture frames where you can record a message into the frame which can be played back over and over again. If you are in need of a special little gift for the teacher, friend, sister, aunt, grandma, nurse in your life...they have gorgeous little packaged candles with labels for each. How about a Glastonbury-themed gift for the born and raised? If you're in the market for some new Christmas decor, check out their gorgeous pillows, light up globes with festive scenes, or a gnome for every home. And...wait for it...they are launching a new PET SECTION just in time for this weekend and plan to offer products sold by Melzen's (RIP...we will miss you!). If you are looking to support local, this is your place!

THE FLOWERED PRESS
Do you know that feeling you get when you open a gift and your heart flutters with joy? Welp...that's exactly what will happen if you gift a print from The Flowered Press. First... let us explain how the owner, Marguerite Alpert's prints come to life. She sources flowers (many from her garden) and breaks them down into their parts (petals, seeds, leaves, stems, etc). Then she arranges them into creative and utterly gorgeous designs, pressing them into final works of art. She offers high resolution, quality prints that are NOW AVAILABLE on her website. These are the kind of pieces that not only make you stop and look, they make you PAUSE | BREATHE | APPRECIATE. And with names like Zen, Optic Flare, and Effervescence, it's no wonder they elicit calm or happiness. We immediately felt drawn to many of them. Click HERE to browse the collection of prints and cards made with a deep seeded love for nature by Marguerite Alpert. Or, for a sampling of her collection, purchase the card pack HERE (comes wrapped with a festive ribbon).

There's always a hidden gem at Emmy Lou's Gift Shop on the corner of Main and Hebron. We love perusing all the nooks and crannies of this beloved little shop. This year, we found some real goodies for gifting! The singing/talking Mother Goose resights all of the traditional tales while the stuffed giraffe sings a fun song and extends his neck. How about some rubber bottom, cozy slippers with fun designs for the tween/teen in your life? We also spotted some new, hand-painted pottery by a woman who paints delicate floral creations from old English archives. For men, the BEERS OF AMERICA pajamas are super soft and fun. Plus, Emmy Lou has all the favorites of years past including some unique and gorgeous ornaments and her door decor custom-made specially by her!

MOORE WELLNESS SOLUTIONS
31B North Main Street, Marlborough
Sara Moore from Moore Wellness Solutions is now offering some incredible new treatments that will blow your mind and transform your skin. We needed to describe each in detail so you have the right info (see below). BUT...take a minute to look at the pictures for REAL RESULTS from some of her clients.
1. EXOSOMES: These potent growth factors are derived from stem cells (strictly screened and tested, healthy 18 to 25 year olds ONLY) and include peptides, coenzymes, minerals, amino acids and vitamins. RESULTS: improvement to fine lines, age-related hyperpigmentation, brightness, firmness, and texture of skin. Also help improve dry itchy scalp, damaged, brittle hair and hair shedding.
2. CO2 LIFT PRO-CARBOXY THERAPY: This treatment uses carbon dioxide to trigger a rush of oxygen rich blood flow to the area to REGENERATE SKIN. RESULTS: Improved skin elasticity and hydration (by 117%) after just one treatment, lifts and tightens skin, reduces lines and wrinkles, brightens skin tone and reduces redness and swelling following procedures such as micro-needling. This can be used in-office or at home (pre-party/event for a little GLOW UP) or as a series of treatments to improve skin regeneration over time.
3. CO2 LIFT V-CARBOXY THERAPY FOR VAGINAL REJUVENATION (JAW DROP): Ok ladies...we get it...this sounds weird...but listen up! This treatment offers proven results for the appearance of the vaginal area, dryness, urinary issues, discomfort during intercourse, and vaginal tightness. It is hormone free with no downtime and offers comprehensive vaginal rejuvenation. Good for anyone looking to improve their vaginal health including after childbirth, pre and post-menopausal symptoms, dryness and irritation related to medication. Easily done in the comfort of your own home, results in as little as 3 treatments.
