Located in the Libbie and Grove shopping district of Richmond, Virginia, Thistles first opened its doors in 1987. It didnʼt take long for the store to become a Richmond tradition with a focus on serving individuals and companies looking for distinctive gifts.

Specializing in the finest imported Italian leather gifts, Thistles also carries a variety of elegant accessories and home décor products including Barbour outdoor apparel, Nest candles and diffusers, handbags and wallets by GiGi New York, handsome Filson luggage, and La Vie Parisienne’s vintage inspired jewelry, beautifully rendered from the original French molds of the early 1900s.

We are especially happy to showcase one of a kind items by local artisans including our mirrored picture frames by Helen Keyser and handmade works of art by woodworker Michael Cope.

We have found over the years that our customers truly appreciate being able to purchase gifts with a personal touch. Thistles specializes in gold stamping and embossing leather both of which are ideal for commemorating that special occasion.

Whether it be a wedding, graduation, professional achievement, celebration of birth, anniversary, birthday, or even a simple thank you, Thistles has that special gift for you.
