This boutique has quality goods handmade by organizations offering economic empowerment & abundant life around the world. There is a personal story behind each crafted item -choose a one of a kind item that's special to you or your loved one. Women's clothing and jewelry, journals, children's items, home décor and more. Located in Crestwood.

 photo e6e28884-6980-48d1-818e-740d7e416c02_zpshptstkk3.jpgFeed and Seed Depot - Another Crestwood favorite is this small garden and feed center.  If you have a gardener on your list, stop in this store.  We know it's hard to think of gardening when it's so cold outside, but your purchase will be appreciated once the warmer months return.  The owners and staff are knowledgeable and friendly and will help you find what you need.  They have gifts for non-gardeners also.  Pick out some succulents and ask for help making a creative arrangement.  These make great hostess or teacher gifts.  Their farm fresh eggs and other ingredients can help you make that dish you have to take to the holiday party.  Pair the local honey with some tea and a cute mug from one of the other stores listed in this directory.

 photo little kentucky river winery_zpsampvtci1.jpg The Little Kentucky River Winery - If you're headed to a holiday party or hosting, pick up some wine from this local winery.  They have a variety to choose from.  Their Oldham County location is in LaGrange, right along the railway tracks on Main Street.  A couple of bottles of local wine will be appreciated by your 21 and over friends and family.

Knock on Wood Country Mercantile - We have said it before, but this restaurant/store is a hidden gem in Wesport, Oldham County.   Their inventory is always changing, but visitors can find great home goods, clothing, jewelry, candles, holiday items, furniture and more!
