There are countless reasons I love December Thieves. One reason is that this shop carries something for everything, bow ties for men, jewels for women, serving and dining wear for the hostess, dolls for the children, scarves, bags, body care products for everyone. Making this the ultimate one stop gift shop (hello holidays!).
Another reason for my love is the creativity that courses through this business. Owner Lana is an artist herself (specifically a jewelry designer), December Thieves is artist owned and run. Lana says "The focus is on emerging designer brands - small batch from independent brands from across the country (coast to coast) in addition to many European fashion brands- clothing from Barcelona, jewelry from Madrid, leather bags and scarves from Amsterdam and Austria, home decor from France and then unique Japanese made goods". Lana travels quite a bit nationally and internationally for new products for the store.
The name December Thieves comes from the Rumi poem "Music We Are".This, as well as the displays, and the products themselves, are shining examples of the creativity poured into this business.
December Thieves has two locations. I first fell for this unique company at their South End location during SoWa Sundays, however they recently opened their Beacon Hill location where I snapped these photos. With the addition of their new location, it is clear that December Thieves is flourishing under Lana, who also announced to me that mid spring an in-house jewelry and accessories line will be debuting in this coming spring. I can already tell it is going to be major.
