Emerging artists and small-batch food producers are the focus at Olives & Grace. Started by Jamaica Plain resident Sofi Madison, this sumptuous shop spreads the word about the quality and provenance of all the foodstuffs, body products, and accessories it carries. You'll find sustainable gift giving at its best here. Pick up a box of Lark shortbread, or have Sofi put together a gift box and ship it to the lucky recipient. The silky-smooth serving boards from Salt Cellar also caught my eye. Classes and monthly gatherings increase the sense of community in a space dedicated to the "tiny stories" that make up the world.
