Editor’s note: We’re highlighting holiday gift ideas that can be purchased in Menlo Park with the idea of shopping local. Designated downtown parking lots have extended holiday hours — up to three hours.
Malika, who owns Gitane at 855 Santa Cruz Avenue, likes to point out that she has gift items for both mothers and daughters, in other words, women of a wide age range. The jewelry and accessories pictured here are handmade in California by local designers. Prices ranging from $98-$478.
Gitane is hosting a holiday party on Wednesday, Dec. 17, from 4:00 to 8:00 pm. Emails Malika: “There will be holiday sweets by Toran’s Tasty Treats, sparkly jewelry by TreBella,trunk show by Amour Vert Eco-Fashion, bubbly, and surprise giveaways!”
