With the holidays upon us, there seems to be an endless list of things to accomplish—shopping, holiday decorating, mailing holiday cards, baking and much more. Shopping locally offers the convenience of cutting down on travel time and traffic. And we can be confident in the quality of our purchases when we patronize shops and boutiques that offer that extra personalized touch and superior customer service. Let’s shop!
