Shop Local This Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching. Fear not, for there are plenty of local shops to grab last minute goodies for your Valentine. Here’s a list of our favorite local shops for sweets, all things tiny & shiny, artwork and more.


Chocolate Cartel
Two locations:
Heights – 315 Juan Tabo Blvd NE Ste A
Old Town – 111 Romero St NW


From their website: “Real chocolate addicts come back again and again for our stuff. Why? Because our fans are tired of over-priced, mediocre product in a pretty package.”

Word has it they also happen to be Mayor Keller’s favorite chocolate shop in town, NBD.
