The greater Sacramento area is known for its wide variety of shopping options. From the Galleria mall in Roseville and the quaint shops along Main Street in Placerville to the unique gift shops in downtown Davis and the name-brand outlet stores in Folsom. But it also has plenty of online options as well, especially if you’re looking for a locally made, one-of-a-kind gift.
There are hundreds of local makers in the greater Sacramento area who sell their creations online via Etsy, from cozy blankets to handmade pottery to all-natural bath items.
