Here it comes, that crushing week when Christmas and Hannukah are upon us. The Holidays are a great time to visit with friends and family but they sometimes pose the problem of gift giving. Are you still wondering what to get your mother, cousin, kids, hostess, or that tough-to-please friend on your list? Join the rest of the Petalumans that are scratching their heads with that dilemma right now. There’s always someone that is tough to buy for and sometimes all they need is a little hometown pride in their life. We all love where we live– Petaluma, CA and the holidays are a great time to show our friends and families who love it here too.
I volunteer at the Petaluma Visitor’s Center and one of the most frequently asked questions by locals and visitors alike is, “Where can I find Petaluma branded items?” I wanted to dig a bit deeper than your standard logo tee shirts so I went looking and discovered there are lots possibilities for the Petaluma Lover on your list. Everything from sterling and gold pendants, travel coffee mugs, tea towels, vintage note cards, letterpress cards and even hot sauces made right here in Petaluma. There are vintage Butter and Egg Day Parade posters and a coffee table book about the history of Petaluma. And of course, tee shirts, sweatshirts/hoodies and hats. Below is a list of places I’ve found with Petaluma items. So head out and get something that makes you Petaluma Proud.
