East Sacramento covers a lot of ground, but all of the businesses featured in today's post can be found in a one-block area on Folsom Boulevard in the vicinity of 33rd and 34th Streets. At the top of the list is the new East Sac Mercantile, where vendors rent individual spaces to sell their merchandise. The items offered are an eclectic mix, including handcrafted goods, antiques, gifts for sports fans, and flowers. They're having a holiday happy hour next Wednesday, December 19th, between 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Great time to check it out!
Across the street from the East Sac Mercantile is Krazy Mary's Boutique, a fun place to shop for the young women on your holiday gift list. They offer beautiful and unique clothing, jewelry, and accessories, as well as a nice selection of TOMS shoes. The owners of Krazy Mary's are also the owners of Sugar Shack on J Street in Midtown.
Behind Krazy Mary's is the Pink House, which sells women's shoes, handbags, and other accessories. While the shoes are not vegan, many of the gorgeous purses are.
It was pretty cold outside while I was visiting these stores and taking all these pictures, so I walked over to Coffee Works and ordered a latte with almond milk. I've got to get back there soon, because they've got a vegan coconut nog on their menu that will be available only during the holidays. Yum!
