It’s almost Valentine’s Day — when we show how we feel in fun and creative ways. 

This year, we are showing some Valentine’s Day love for Phoenix!

The best way to practice a little hometown love is to shop and dine locally. Because when you shop at a small business, you are supporting a dream. Your purchases do more than pay the bills; they help a little girl get ballet lessons, or put a young student through college. 

Visit these stores today and support our vibrant town. Let’s feel the love!

Dragon Crystals

Rock enthusiasts will love exploring Dragon Crystals, a Phoenix business which sells crystals, gems and minerals. Their expansive selection is amazing — with Labradorite, Celestite, amethyst, small copper spheres, palm stones, and much more. You will marvel at the natural beauty of these gems, rocks and crystals, which come in every shape, size and color. You could easily spend an hour or two discovering all the different rocks and gems. And if you’re looking for the perfect present, people love rocks as gifts! Dragon Crystals is open from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m., seven days a week. Visit their store today and “rock out”!

Organicos Bakery

Organicos Bakery specializes in gluten free and vegan breads and baked goods. Their food is made with the best organic ingredients, and will satisfy any craving. The best way to start the day is with a slice (or two!) of Organicos’ pumpkin crumb cake, cinnamon rolls or sticky buns, and a hot cup of coffee. They also have seasonal and holiday specials, like King Cake for Mardi Gras. Organicos Bakery is open at their new location in the Phoenix Industrial Studios along S. Pacific Highway. Their retail hours are Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, 7 a.m. – 2 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, 7am – 2 p.m., and closed on Wednesday and Friday. Check their website for daily specials, and get your favorite treats today.
