Turkeys, trees and assorted treats. Deck your halls with local.

The holidays are in full swing and when it comes to shopping local, a lot of folks are focused on finding the perfect gifts for the people on our list. But, let’s not forget about how much we do at home during the festive season. From your Christmas tree to your Christmas dinner, everything you buy locally does as much good for local producers and your community as the local gifts you buy.

The Local Gift Effect

You’ve probably heard the saying, “what goes around comes around”, but when it comes to buying your gifts from local small businesses and producers this holiday season, “what goes around stays around” is probably more accurate. That’s because when spend your money at small businesses in your community, more of that money stays and circulates in the local community.

A Unique Shopping Experience

It happens every year, the holidays sneak up and you haven’t crossed anyone off your over-flowing Christmas list! Part of the struggle is finding the perfect gift for those that seem to “have it all”. From your hard to buy for niece, or a hostess gift for the neighbor that always puts on a great holiday party, you yearn to find something that will reflect how much you care for and appreciate your friends and family.
