Shopping Guide to Automobile Alley
With the upcoming holiday shopping season and the release of my movie, District Up!, I’m publishing a series of gift guide articles on district shopping. This shopping guide on the Automobile Alley was written for those looking for special gifts, who don’t want to deal with the malls, and have suggestions for multiple ideas within an area. Plus, if you get hungry while shopping, Automobile Alley has plenty of places to eat.

Good vibes only at Shop Good. No matter what you buy at Shop Good, a portion of your sale supports a deserving effort to strengthen communities and meet real needs both here in Oklahoma City and around the world.

For Sara Kate Studios, I’m going to share this piece of their story:
“We love the unusual and the storied: pieces that harken back to another time — items that say, “I’ve had a little adventure.” We believe in a mix of high and low, and investment pieces that become those family favorites to be passed down for years to come. We live by the mantra of a certain kind of minimalism: only surround yourself with the things and people you love.”

The goal of Urbane is to provide what you need to create a considered lifestyle for your home with a mix of home furnishings, decor, barware, serveware, and more. The photo highlights their offerings to make you and your home smell great. If you need a coffee boost, Coffee Slingers is next door.

There are plenty of good gifts to find at Plenty Mercantile. I can say plenty of nice things about them, including putting up with the puns. The purpose of Plenty Mercantile “is to provide life and style products that convey a strong sense of origin, process, and authenticity.” Everything there will in some way to improve the quality of your life or your pets.

Down from Bluewater Divers is the local wine maker, Waters Edge Winery. Not only can you buy wine, but they have wine flavored ice cream, custom label design, and offer classes to make your own wine. I would like to note that each private vintage makes approximately 25-27 bottles and takes 5 to 7 seven weeks to complete so you may not want to go that route for the holidays. However, you can do a custom label, which has a turnaround time of 72 hours.
617 N. Broadway Aveune, Oklahoma City
While Bow & Arrow has nothing to do with bows and/or arrows, they are a trendy, affordable, contemparory women’s clothing boutique. With prices listed $100 and under, the store appeals to the modern women on a budget, who still wants the high fashion trends.
