Love is complicated, but shopping doesn’t have to be.
In the days leading up to the emotionally loaded anxiety fest that is Valentine’s Day we’ll be posting gifting solutions sourced from local shops and shop owners. All the gift ideas will be based on specific examples of complex relationships and the what-to-give quagmires that result from them.
Don’t sweat your sweetie, that is. Let us lead the way.
THE RELATIONSHIP ISSUE: Communication. You don’t know how, when, or with what precise words to say what you want to say.
THE RESOLUTION: Let vintage vinyl do the talking.
THE EXPERT: Jeffrey Taylor at Wall of Sound Records on Capitol Hill.
THE GIFT: Afro-Desia by Martin Denny ‘The record is a mood-setting, instrumental that can be played over dinner or conversation,’ says Taylor. ‘Also check out Exotica by the same artist.’
