10 Locally Made Stocking Stuffers At The Main & PCH Pop-Up
Numerous items require stuffing during the holidays. Bellies, shopping bags, mall Santa's midriff...and stockings. Our Holiday Pop-Up Gift Shop at the Huntington Harbour Mall features unique gifts made by more than 35 local artists, and many of them make perfect, thoughtful stocking stuffers. Here are 10 of our in-house favorites.
1. Ceramic Ornaments / $8-$10
Because one can never have too many Christmas ornaments. Artist Andrea Luna Reece handcrafts retro ceramic tops, mini wreaths, and cute ceramic creatures, like squirrels, owls, and deer. Her story here.
2. Wood Penguin / $16-$30
Handmade in Huntington Beach by "Master Woodworker" Tim Pellissier, and exceptionally adorable.
3. BBQ Sauce / $6
Tangy and addicting, Grandma Izetta's Kansas Roadhouse Barbecue Sauce is now made in Orange County and is a delicious accompaniment to almost any dish. Her story here.
4. Hand-Wrapped Rings / $24.99-$35.99
Copper and silver wire hugging stones and beads. SoZo Creationz are made by hand in Huntington Beach and are simply stunning. Her story here.

6. Wood Coasters / $5
It's five o' clock somewhere, right? Right. Huntington Beach artist Jeri Vann's handmade wood coaster collection sources from sustainable elm and sumac, and some of her designs call to the lords of "love," "wine," and bicycles. Others are coated in chalkboard paint, just begging for imagination and personalization. Her story here.

Handmade by BLNK USA in Cypress, these leather key fobs are functional and fashionable for both ladies and gents.
8. Bicycle Book Trio / $45

These beautiful Ann's Honor bags extend the life of produce, as well as the hand-drawn art of the founder's mother. Grab one, two, or all three sizes and give back this holiday season. Her story here.
10. Copper Cuffs / $26-$30
Huntington Beach artist Zona Sherman not only works with cork, she also hammers copper cuffs, varying in size and theme—which is commonly w-i-n-e. Her story here.
