Shop Nevada City for Unique Gifts

Screen shot 2010-12-09 at 1.57.49 PMDuring the Christmas season, the buildings in Nevada City are highlighted with small Christmas lights which create a magic for the Holiday season. Store windows are decorated in the Victorian mode and natural green swags adorn the gas lights, just as was done years ago.

Historic downtown Nevada City features a variety of charming specialty shops for your holiday gift shopping. These shops offer quality clothing, hats, jewelry, home furnishings and home decor. Exceptional craftsmanship is showcased throughout the town. Fine and functional arts are available in many stores. There are great outlets for both young and old including antiques, toys, candy, wines and fine gift items.

Nevada City is a center for quality restaurants, coffee shops and bookstores. Experience a relaxing day shopping in Nevada City, a town that is known as the “Queen City of the Northern Mines”. Most retail stores are open daily from 11:00 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Grass Valley/Nevada City Christmas cards by LeeAnn Brook and Loana Beeson are available in the Chamber office. Local cards add a personal touch to your special holiday message.

Gift items representing the local area also in the Chamber office include Nevada City sweatshirts, t-shirts, coffee mugs, latte cups, magnets, local history books, and geodes and tea lights depicting gold miners. And for those in the holiday spirit there are shot glasses and cordials in various shapes and colors with a “Nevada City” signature.

Don’t Forget to Dress Up Nevada City

Yes – That’s the plan starting on Friday, September 11th

The businesses in Nevada City will kick off this promotional campaign which is to dress in either Victorian or western costumes and extend their hours on Fridays and Saturdays for shopping convenience.

It’s kind of a show in itself and a fun idea that we hope will catch on and boost our weekend business in Nevada City.

The Dress up campaign is scheduled to happen from September 11th to the end of December.

What else is being added to the Dress Up Campaign? Chuck Shea , owner of The Parsonage Bed and Breakfast Inn, in conjunction with the Nevada City Carriage Company, will restart the horse carriages in Nevada City on Friday Sept 11th, and operate each weekend through Victorian Christmas.

The restart of the carriages is designed to open up the downtown shops and restaurants until late in the evening to provide for a new gathering spot for locals and visitors to come meet their friends, listen to music, and just have fun!
