  • Shopping


While you’re shopping for coffee table books and shea butter lotion and paintings of Charlotte landscapes, remember that gifts come in packages. At this beloved Dilworth shop, you’ll find wrapping paper decorated with ladybugs or ice cream cones, and you may even overhear two elderly women chortling in the card aisle. Sample birthday card message: “Be good to your family! One day you’ll need them to smuggle alcohol into your nursing home.”
