We are getting down to the wire for Christmas shopping folks so here are a few more ideas for you in your neighborhood!

skateboard-79398_960_720For the skateboarding champion in your life, visit Yeah Boardshop at Bartlett Plaza Shopping Center, 148 Bartlett
Plaza, Bartlett, IL. They have everything you can think of from skateboards to skateboard equipment! Yeah, Boardshop has a great selection with even better prices, and the owner is always ready to help you with all your needs and answer your questions. I highly recommend this local shop to anyone looking for skateboarding gear!

Another spot to get you Christmas swag from would be Rediscover Records recordsat 9 S Spring St Elgin, Illinois. Rediscover Records is an indie record shop in historic downtown Elgin. They specialize in vinyl, the best of freshest new releases from this year and the best of the classics. They have pre-owned records in 33, 45, and 78rpm formats. Prices for pre-owned records start at $1 and the average price is $5-$15, though there are a few exceptions if collectible. Vinyl records are making a huge come back due to their pure sound and “warmth” records provide to its listener. Don’t have a record player? No worries, Rediscover has those too!

If you still have a few people to cross off your list, we have three more shops to explore before Christmas!
