Shop small, go home big with local finds in Visalia 

Looking for the best place to shop on Small Business Saturday? These treasures are the bread and butter of the Downtown Visalia experience. Check out  these downtown Visalia boutiques during your stay

There are ways to get to know an exciting destination other than through sightseeing and landmarks. Explore the heart of the city and shop like a local this holiday shopping season. Whether you’re navigating thrift shops or unique boutiques, shopping in a new city can be a great way to find those one-of-a-kind treasures. In Visalia, California, there are plenty of choices to fill your experience – and your suitcase – before the trip home. 

Sustainability is a growing need for every closet. Consider Joshua Tree, a women’s unique boutique store in the heart of downtown Visalia. Looking for that new edge and earthy style? Joshua Tree should be your first stop on your “things to do in Visalia” list. Located at 505 W. Center Street, Joshua Tree is known for its earthy properties, strong presence and undeniable beauty.

Curious for something eclectic to add to your wardrobe? Visalia has those fun finds you won’t get at the chain stores. Check out Envie Boutique at 125 N. Encina Street, Supernova at 111 W. Main, Sugar Plums at 207 W. Main, and Sugar Mamaz at 207B W. Main. 

The best keepsake from a great vacation is a product that embodies the city you visited; look no further for a snapshot of Visalia than at Pacific Treasures & Gourmet. Known as the most wonderful place to shop, Pacific Treasures & Gourmet carries stellar finds from culinary gadgets and locally-made candles, to giftable souvenirs and adorable children’s items. Pacific Treasures & Gourmet is located at 114 E. Main Street.

There are even more home décor treasures waiting at these Visalia hot spots this Small Business Saturday. Check out Arts Visalia at 214 E. Oak Street, Peddlers Market at 520 E. Main Street and Visalia Vintage & Antiques at 700 S. Mooney Boulevard. And, if you made the road trip here, pop a unique furniture piece from Janeens’s Furniture Gallery, at 220 W. Main Street, in your truck bed. 

Finding a local, craft gem is just as exciting as the trip itself. Inside Letter & Grain, you’ll find modern farmhouse, Boho décor made by local artisans. Located at 115 N. West Street and built by Visalian “mompreneur,” Letter & Grain’s workshop brings sophistication and personalization to the traditional farmhouse table. Discover your next modern or rustic garnish at this local trendy haven.  

Visalia is a hub for makers of all kinds—crafts, art and foods. Here are some additional shops filled with locally-made goods: Organic Apothecary & Communitique at 105 S. Church Street, Valhalla at 314 W. Center Avenue, Naturally Nuts at 1830 W. Caldwell Avenue and Visalia’s Farmer’s Market every Saturday at Sequoia Mall parking lot at the corner of Mooney Boulevard and Caldwell Avenue.
