Love is in the air this month – though you might need to dodge a few raindrops when you step outside to breathe it in! We love dreaming up thoughtful ways to show the special people in our lives how much we care, and Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to do so.

Alisa Hopper turned her passion for tinkering into a fun and busy Etsy shop. All Things Tinsel features one-of-a-kind bridal jewelry that Hopper creates by taking apart and piecing together vintage pieces.

Few things are more romantic than a handwritten love letter, and Kyli Frauenheim can help make your next one look like a work of art. She’s created her own version of calligraphy, called “Kyligraphy,” and people are clamoring to learn her technique.

At the tender age of 10, Danay Ferguson’s heart for others can be measured in pages. Disturbed to discover that Fresno has a high illiteracy rate, she founded Reading Heart, a nonprofit organization that provides free books to children in under-reached areas and hospitals.

We love treasure hunts, and Warehouse 2639 offers gently used furniture and home décor in various styles that visitors can use to start their own DIY projects or to simply fill a void in their home décor.

Mark your calendar for the 50th World Ag Expo, which traditionally draws more than 100,000 people to learn a little more about the world of agriculture. There’s plenty for dealers, buyers and even the general public to enjoy. 

If you’re still looking for that perfect, handmade gift to present to your true love on Valentine’s Day, stop by Enjoy the Store in Visalia – we’ll help you make a thoughtful selection and wrap it up while you wait.
