24 Nov Shop Local Saturday
A Magazine is all about celebrating what’s local, so Shop Local Saturday is very close to our hearts. Tomorrow, we hope you’ll join us in supporting some of the amazing businesses based right here in our own community. Not only is it a wonderful way to help our local economy thrive, it’s also a way to find truly unique gifts for your loved ones. Here are four of our local favorites to kick-start your shopping list.
Talk about local! Third-generation Las Vegan Jessica Galindo is handcrafting one-of-a-kind, avant-garde leather handbags and accessories right here in town. While you could find some of her pieces from other retailers or on her website, we believe the only way to shop her stunning leather creations is at her storefront in Downtown Summerlin. We dare you to get your hands on a Dagger Clutch or the Turquoise Pyramid Stud Ring without falling in love.
***If we get a popup scheduled by the time this posts I’ll add this: Visit Leather Couture on DATE TIME and join us for an A Magazine popup! Grab a copy of the 2017 Gift Guide and enter to win a PRIZE OF SOME KIND***
