A Welcome Addition to Appleton

Sometimes you need a little humor when it comes to gift giving, and we found the perfect gifts for the wine lover or beer drinker in your life. Several years ago I started patronizing Poppy Avenue Boutique and have become friends with the mother daughter duo of Audra and Christian. Recently they relocated their store to Appleton’s RiverHeath and have made a great impact, already receiving Appleton Downtown’s Rising New Star Business of the year award.

Foodie Friends

Both Audra and Christian have been supportive on our blog and are foodies themselves. If you get a chance to grab your girlfriends and book one of their Wine and Masking nights not only will you end up with glowing skin, but enjoy the best organic wines that are of course favorites of Audra and Christian themselves.

Wine Lovers – Wrap Your Gifts with Humor

If you love wine, maybe a little treat yo’ self moment? Or have socially distanced events to attend this holiday, grab one of the wine bags offered at Poppy Avenue Boutique. I personally like “Pairs Well with Relatives.” because at least I feel a little pressure surrounded by my relatives and wine might take the edge off. If you haven’t yet make sure to check out our Holiday Gift Guide.

Need a Gift for the Filthy Animal in Your Life?

This year they have some hilarious beer glasses that will compliment many of the our favorite local breweries like Fox River Brewing Co of Oshkosh that just celebrated 25 years of business, McFleshman’s which will forever be my Mile of Music spot, and Barrel 41 Brewing Co with their awesome holiday flavors like Peppermint Stout (it’s amazing and you need to try it!) 

Don’t forget to grab the coffee mug especially if you need to nurse a hangover, ya filthy animal! 

Support Local – Small Buisness Love

While you are there make sure to grab one of the awesome shirts Poppy Avenue has to compliment your new wine bag or glass. And if anything grab a support local t-shirt because if you are reading this blog post we know you are on board with giving local small businesses a little extra love this year.
