December is here, Christmas trees are up, beautiful gleaming lights hanging all around, warm cups of cocoa or in my case coffee, and my favorite part...shopping! Tis the season of giving and what better way to celebrate than by shopping local. As a mother of a toddler, shopping can be extremely overwhelming, which is why I love shopping small. Benefits of shopping small:
- Avoid large crowds
- Short Commute
- Diverse/Custom made products
- Help create jobs in our community
- Small businesses contribute back to our community
Shopping small has also gotten easier! Did you know you can shop online from your favorite local shops? Just visit their website, Facebook page or Instagram page. Not an online shopper? Not a problem. The North Channel Area is open for business. Just make sure to wear your mask and respect any protocols each business has for your safety and others.
