Deck the Halls with Long Beach Ornaments
From hearts to homes, the holidays just feel and look different than the rest of the year. And one of the best changes comes via ornaments. Whether sentimental, silly or sparkling, they dress up spaces and spirits. Here are a few places in Long Beach to find a great hang.
THE BETTER HALF BOUTIQUE
A Bixby Knolls favorite, The Better Half Boutique (3803 Atlantic Ave) is known for its family atmosphere–it’s owned by a mother/daughter partnership–as well as a wide array of gifts that can be custom engraved. That goes for ornaments as well, which can be engraved noting the year, person or message with special meaning. Ornaments are displayed throughout the store on shelves and Christmas trees. You can also find kitchenware, specialty foods, picture frames and lots of unique gifts.
FAIR TRADE LONG BEACH COLLECTIVE
LB Swag (5304 E 2nd St.) carries products made by local vendors, including an ornament that celebrates a beloved local holiday tradition: the floating wooden Christmas trees located on waterways around town. While the wooden-framed pyramid structures are 16-feet tall, LB Swag carries a miniature 5-inch-tall ornament version as well as a 14-inch centerpiece lined with LED string lights to bring this beloved piece of local holiday cheer into your own home.
LUNA BELMONT SHORE
If you’re a local, this may be the first place you thought of for ornaments. That’s because Luna Belmont Shore (4928 Second St) is committed to great, unique ornaments year-round, displaying them up front, as in, they hang dozens of them year-round in their front window. And these are ornaments of all kinds, traditional, quirky and Stevie Nicks. Yes, Stevie Nicks and bedazzled avocado toast and parrothead Santa Claus.
