Once again, we have the honor of celebrating the moms in our lives this May. Every mom went above and beyond in the last year by taking on new roles amidst the pandemic. They became so much more than parents: learning to educate from home, entertain with limited resources, and encourage and inspire their children despite a fearful time of uncertainty. They really can do it all. Take advantage of this annual holiday to show the nurturing mamas in your life how much you appreciate them with a gift from one of these local businesses.
This indie boutique boasts a selection of sophisticated and fun pieces. From upscale, bohemian tops to trendy jumpsuits, Haven is just that – a haven of awesome textiles, accessories, jewelry, and the like. The store’s style experts have even compiled a list just for Mother’s Day to take the guesswork out of shopping for someone else. Find the perfect gift, here.
With an eye for statement pieces and high-quality craftsmanship, Max Martinez keeps his Walnut Street store stocked with top brands including Prada, Dries Van Noten, and Yves St. Laurent.

The retail staff, manager, and owner create community and help patrons find exactly what they’re looking for, one silk top at a time.
