With an abundance of shopping choices for the holidays, I was happy to be able to find many gifts at one of my favorite locally owned stores, WaterMark Corners. Owned by mother-daughter team, Barbara and Amy Trimble, WaterMark Corners is a specialty gift and stationery store. The store is in three historic buildings on the John Deere Commons across from the John Deere Pavilion in downtown Moline, Illinois. It is always a pleasure to shop in the beautiful surroundings.
There’s a new shop in Rock Island and it’s creating quite a splash. The owner, Christiana Headley, is a Quad Cities native and she opened Splash “to help you relax, rejuvenate and pamper yourself.” She has a great Facebook LIVE video describing why she is passionate about helping others take care of themselves.
As parents, we are in the home stretch!
That means, if you are anything like me, you are scrambling for last-minute gifts and stocking stuffers for your family members and friends.
Do you think that shopping local is only for adults? Not the case.
I love to find gifts for kids with a QC flair – and even better are the gifts that keep giving all year long. Most kids have plenty of toys under the tree, but these gifts give your kids the gift of experience.
So, if you are looking for a gift idea for QC kid, here are a few favorite picks.
