Top 5 Unique Places to Holiday Shop in the Rogue Valley!

It’s the Holiday season! Here at, we’ve picked a few of our favorite shops to share with you!

Lille Belle Farms in Central Point

  • 211 N. Front St.
  • 541-664-2815
  • Open every day!

Even if not everyone on your shopping list likes sweets, we bet that enough do to make the trek to this Rogue Valley treat. You can find an amazing assortment of one-of-a-kind chocolates that look as beautiful as they taste. Creating a chocolate box assortment is the best way to handpick a special gift for your loved ones.

Everything from Lavender Sea Salt Caramels to Smoky Blue Cheese Truffles to fruity bonbons will fill a purple box of twelve. Or if your family is into chocolate bars, then you have a selection made from the best cacao beans from different countries. Make sure that you try the “Most Awesome Chocolate Bar Ever” because it is. I have eaten more than enough of these to be an expert!

Trader Joe’s in Medford

  • 55 Rossanley Drive
  • Medford, OR
  • 541-608-4993

Trader Joe’s, of course! Whether you need the perfect bottle of wine or want to fill a basket to the brim with organic, hard-to-find savory and sweet yummies, you can do it at Trader Joe’s.

They pride themselves on unconventional and interesting products. If you need gluten-free items, check out their Gluten-free cornbread mix. It is new, but they have other gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free and almost free pricing to make any person on your list pleased.

Ashland Artisan Emporium

  • 1670 Ashland St.

Half the fun of shopping is searching for the exact gift for each unique person.

At the Emporium, it is an unpredictable treasure hunt that is sure to lead you to some special and handmade finds. You might also find treats for yourself too! They have over 17,000 square feet of space for artisans of all types from clothing to jewelry to used books.

Time Machine Records & Boutique in Grants Pass

  • 761 NE 6th St.
  • Grants Pass, OR
  • 541-292-8186
  • Open Tuesday through Saturday.

Step back in time when you are out of time for shopping at Time Machine Records. They carry clothing, art and of course, records. If you need a vintage device called a record machine, they have those as well. Their collection of vinyl is diverse and ever-changing so you never know what you might discover. What a fun way to entertain those who are music lovers on your list.

You might even want to take them with you and let them pick out their top 5 albums and then surprise them with several. Running short on cash for the holidays? Sell your old albums at Time Machine Records too!

Black Bird Shopping Center

  • 1810 West Main St.
  • Medford, OR
  • 541-779-5431
  • Open every day!

We LOVE the Black Bird in Medford! Do you have an angler or hunter on your shopping list? You will always find what you need for the outdoorsman or woman at Black Bird.

This store started out as a surplus store in 1965 and has grown into a one-stop-shop for boaters, fishermen and women, and outdoor enthusiasts. If you need to make an automotive or RV repair, chances are they have what you need.

Need camping gear at a reasonable price, they likely have it! You can get all your canning goods supplies there as well. They even have Christmas tree permits. Not to mention, they are also a ski-shop in the Winter. What else could one need?
