Wild Goose Chase

We know: It’s better to give than to receive. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Frankly, we beg to differ. But when we have to do the buying, we make our first stop Wild Goose Chase, whose owners, Irene Chang and Bob Kelly, embrace the age-old mantra and strive to make gift-giving fun. With a stock of Infinity jewelry boxes, Ashleigh Manor picture frames, Patrick Meyer sugar spoons, and Stephen Dixon rings, the boutique has no shortage of appropriate presents for anniversaries, apologies, and every event in between.
