Local holiday wish list: Kaitlin Resler

Kaitlin Resler Holiday Wish List

On Kaitlin's list: candy, books and pretty vintage things.

In holiday seasons past AOA has made lists of local gifts we thought people might like to get. This year, we're going right to the source. Instead of making our list, we've asked a few people directly: What's on your holiday wish list?

Next up: the very fashionable Kaitlin Resler...

Definitely a box of fruit slices from Uncle Sam's in Schenectady
Preferably an entire box of blue (blueberry) and red (raspberry). There is something really awesome about getting an entire box in one flavor and giving oneself free reign to eat the entire thing in 24 hours because it's Christmas, and I will eat all the candy if I want to.

A vintage cat figurine from Elissa Halloran's store on Lark Street
I'm reasonably certain that is where the best collection of cat figurines for purchase are to be found in the Capital Region (and as a self-proclaimed cat-whisperer and cat-lady, I know these things).

A gift certificate from Dove & Hudson
Just about the best present I could get.

Anything from Anchor 5 Boutique in Troy
Seriously, anything, because everything in there is adorable and often locally made, but especially the little flower-topped bobby pins (since my life is already being held together by those pins, they might as well be adorable).

Movie tickets to the Spectrum!
There are about 45 movies I already want to see, and even more coming out because this is the SEASON for movies apparently. So, some of those would be super.

A membership to the Albany Institute of History and Art
I love it there, and I go fairly often. But you know, it would be nice to feel cool and be a member and all :) Plus I wouldn't be forced to make the decision between buying lunch and visiting the mummies (this quandary happens much more often than it should in my life).

Comments

love the list!

Even Kaitlin's gift choices are chic. I agree on the Anchor No 5 Bobby pins - so cute!

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.

... I think for me and many in the community, there is a desire to go back to this point in time, were neighborhoods were rounder, more complete and effervescent, and not so square that they can't take any unique pegs coming its way. There is a lot of energy in this neighborhood, and potential, not unlike other industrial zones in other cities, that have scene remarkable change towards diverse economies. Some do it well, others not so much, so I think it will be important to take those lessons learned from our peers to make sure it is done right. ...
