Stones Throw: A Gift Shop Not to Be Missed


Stones Throw: A Gift Shop Not to Be Missed

By Deborah Taylor-French

Not likely you will go local any closer in Cotati than this shop. Kudos to owner Jasmine Gold and the Songbird Community for visioning this inspiring gift shop. For two years, the community talked about where and when they could launch their vision of direct from artisans to you. Luckily, the time and downtown space became perfect in 2014. Voilà! Local Gifts for the Body, Mind, and Spirit is located at 15 Charles Street, across the street from Songbird and one door down from Old Redwood Highway, behind the new I Scream Cafe.

Are you a slow starter for the holiday winter season? I confess I am. I hang onto autumn’s warmth, but Stone’s Throw put me instantly in the mood for gift buying. Not only am I making a list for loved ones, but writing my own wish list too. Give yourself and friends the pleasure of visiting, talking with the artists and crafts-people. Learn the stories behind the affordable jewelry and discover a selection of irresistible home decor, candles, pottery, and paintings plus a rainbow of t-shirts, even up-cycled items. From small to large, you will come away happy with unique gifts. Not often do you find dozens of lovely, beautiful and practical handmade treasures and stocking stuffers, all inside one shop. So enjoy Stone’s Throw, open from Monday through Saturday, 11AM – 7PM & Sunday, noon to 5PM. Call 707-242-6669 or visit online
