Shop Local for the Holiday Season Week 2! (Culver, IN)

November is just flying by and you need to be sure to shop locally and pick up your holiday gifts for your loved ones. Culver Indiana has so much to offer and is often a fan favorite “vacation spot” when coming to Marshall County. We are excited to be able to include all the shopping areas in Culver and we hope you can head on over to check them out in the next few weeks for some awesome Christmas gifts!

Here is a list of all the wonderful places you can check out this holiday season: Civvies, Culver Coffee Company, Culver Marina (seasonal), Culver Farmer’s Market (seasonal), Diva, Fisher & Company Clothiers, Gail’s, IMAGINE Find * Fix * Furnish, Painter & Poet, Park ‘n’ Shop, Ride on Bikes and Rentals (seasonal), and The Garden by Liz.

Civvies is located on 114 south main street in Culver, in 46511 and the phone number is (574) 635-0011. Civvies is a urban boutique featuring hand-picked clothing and accessories. In Culver, they are situated between the rolling green cornfields of Indiana and the pretty blue waters of Lake Maxinkuckee. According to their website, the idea for this small shop came to fruition on many bike rides around the lake… it is a wonderful place to stop in for a short visit or plop down for a long summer stay. Winter finds us enjoying chilly walks in warm scarves and fuzzy sweaters, yet it is their wish at civvies to see that you have something wonderful to wear on all these occasions. Please stop in and check out all the clothing and accessories to go along with the holidays!

Check out the Culver Coffee Company, “Your Coffee Break by the Lake!” While they are mostly known for their tea and coffee, they also have some cute little gift items that would be perfect for a thoughtful Christmas gift!

Diva is located on 107 S. Main Street Culver, IN 46511. Their hours are Monday-Saturday from 10:00am-5:00pm and Sunday 10:00am-3:00pm. If you have any questions you can email or call (574) 842-8870. Their website tells us that in August 2006, after the recent passing of their mother, the two Szponar sisters on their way to breakfast parked in front of a soon to be vacant store and the idea of opening a gift shop seemed to come from nowhere or maybe somewhere outside of them. With Sue in Fort Wayne and Ursula near Culver, the two began to explore the idea. It was always Sue's dream to have her own business, so she started talking to some local shop owners who were very encouraging. Then in January 2007, Sue and Ursula headed to Chicago to attend the semi-annual Gift Show at the Merchandise Mart to make their first purchases for their newly formed enterprise, "Diva." On March 30, 2007, they opened their doors and it has been a labor of love for the sisters who strive to bring in unique merchandise at a variety of price levels. In September 2010, they expanded to the building next door doubling the floor space and growing from a small gift shop to a wide-ranging women's accessories, home decor, and general gifts destination store. Sue and Ursula would't be here without the support of their customers. So, they thank you for giving them the opportunity to proudly serve Culver and the neighboring communities. It is important that we give back to these two ladies and check out Diva for some of our very own holiday gifts to give to our loved ones.
