It's not much of a secret that Columbus has no shortage of shopping options . But there's a side of the Columbus shopping scene that you might not be quite as aware of, and discovering that side is incredibly cool.

I'm talking about the locally owned shops and boutiques that abound in this city. The places that offer up unique products, amazing service and gifts to be remembered.

Columbus blogger Walker Evans is talking about this, too. If you're looking for gift ideas this season, check out Walker's current series, 15 Local Holiday Gift Ideas . Over 15 days, 15 Columbus-based gifts will be spotlighted.
