With Black Friday and the "official" holiday shopping season close upon us, I wanted to put in my two cents and urge everyone to...

Black Friday - Buy Local

There are so many independent local shops all over the US, not to mention the hundreds of online crafters and vintage collectors that provide unique products and personal shopping experiences. Often these sellers struggle to make a living while doing what they love, and this holiday season you can say NO to anonymous chains and YES to supporting small businesses by shopping local/handmade for holiday gifts for your loved ones.

Get creative this year! Grab a friend or family member and go on a hunt for those special one-of-a-kind gifts! I for one am super excited to visit Frocks Boutique, Vintage Martini, and of course Etsy for my holiday gift-giving needs.

What are some of your favorite local businesses? :)
