We love supporting other small businesses, and we look forward to shopping locally this holiday season! EveryHome agents in some of the most popular, walkable, and quaint Philadelphia suburbs share their favorite spots:
In Wayne, EveryHome agent Ashley Bonelli shared that her favorite local boutique is Menagerie. The stylish clothing boutique is her “go to” store for gifts, and the staff are always helpful and friendly! Another great spot in Wayne is Blue Octagon Too, where you can always find amazing and colorful things for your home.
EveryHome agent Jessica Van Artsdalen loves Christine Shirley Sewing and Design Studio in Wayne. This cheerful and thoughtfully curated shop features handmade apparel by the shop’s owner, Paige Sullivan. (Be on the lookout for our feature on Christine Shirley next week!)
EveryHome agent Colleen Whitlock’s hometown of Havertown is filled with shops and eateries. She shared that one of her favorite shopping stops is Renee James, a fashionable boutique that will delight any of the women on your Christmas list. Afterwards, be sure to stop by Testa’s bakery for your favorite traditional Italian favorites. Then take a short trolley ride to the shops of 69th Street in Drexel Hill, and don’t forget to break for lunch at Leandro’s Pizzeria – we promise it’s the best slice in Delco!
The quaint, walkable town of Perkasie is home to a few of our favorite independently-owned eateries. A few of EveryHome agent Kristen Burger’s favorites include Maize, an upscale farm-to-table BYOB, and Freewill, a brewery featuring free tours and food trucks. And of course, you can’t forget The Perk – a town-favorite restaurant that traces its roots back to 1850 when it was a popular spot for farmers and merchants traveling from Philadelphia to the Lehigh Valley.
And of course, we can’t forget Skippack! Katie Kennedy, EveryHome’s co-founder and co-owner loves strolling through Skippack Village for holiday gifts and some of the best eateries in Montgomery County. A few of her favorites include Floral and Hardy, Brothers Kershner Brewing Co., Skippack Stylekrafters, and The Cheese Shop.
