Wild Goose Chase

Birthdays. Anniversaries. Mondays. Gifted gift-givers can always find occasions (however obscure) worth buying for. And Wild Goose Chase’s eclectic crafts and handmade housewares make it simple. The Brookline boutique sells everything from beaded cake platters to blow-glass vases to carved wooden clocks. The range of goods is so robust, you just might pick up something for yourself.

1431 Beacon St., Brookline, 617-738-8020,
