Grab Your Last Minute Gifts at These Local Treasures
We’re mere days, nay, HOURS before stores close for the holiday. If you’re like me, you’re down to the wire with more than one person still on your shopping list. If you’re tempted to make a late-night Walmart run because you’re just not sure what other options you have, you’re not alone! BUT there are lots of local businesses offering incredible products and services, who really need extra love and support this holiday season.
Here’s a list of 14 local businesses you still have time to shop at this holiday season:
