No matter how you celebrate the holidays this year, you can share the love and support local businesses by shopping local. Whether it's to purchase presents, catching up with old friends over a meal, or taking some time out to treat yourself (or your furbabies), the opportunities are endless!
The reasons to shop local are equally endless. Sustainable Connections has a great top 10 list of reasons to think local, buy local, and be local. For myself personally, I can relate to how hard a small business owner works to make their dream a reality. I can appreciate the time invested to build it up strong. The experience of having someone in your community share their excitement for finding your business "right in my own town!". The moment you sit back and realize you did it! You're living your dream. Knowing that by sharing your passion with the world, you are able to support yourself, your loves ones.
Here is a list of some local places to check out this holiday season. This year you can give endless gifts by shopping local. If you want to share any local businesses please put them in the comments below! Let's share the love this holiday season!
(be sure to share with loved ones!!)
