Spoil the ones you love in the town you love. Downtown Pittsboro is full of possibilities for Valentine’s Day on Wednesday, February 14th. May we suggest a few?
Unique handmade jewelry is always a pleasure to give and to receive. Check out the selection at Liquidambar Gallery and Gifts and Joyful Jewel. For the young and young at heart, you can even make your own jewelry with kits from Pittsboro Toys.
Special gifts for the home, both new and vintage, are available at Chatham Home, Reclamation Home Furnishings, Deep River Mercantile, Red Gate Antiques, and Screaming for Vintage. Sweet Valentine’s Day cards and notes can also be found at New Horizons Trading Co. and Deep River Mercantile.
How about a gift certificate for your Valentine? Massage and spa day gift certificates from Salon Blue or the Spa at Bell House are always enthusiastically welcomed, or give the gift of health from the Yoga Garden. Handy types would have fun in a class with famed woodworker Roy Underhill or with antique tools from Ed’s Antique Tool Shop; both offer gift certificates.
For a romantic dinner on the day of, historic Pittsboro has a range of dining options- from casual to formal- at the Pittsboro Roadhouse, Virlie’s Grill, Postal Fish Company, Elizabeth’s Pizza, Modern Life Deli, and the City Tap.
Whatever you’re looking for, buy local and #FindItInPittsboro this Valentine’s Day.
