Happy holidays!

Not to alarm you, but if you still need to do some Christmas shopping, this is your second to last weekend. Don’t worry, though, we have some excellent ideas for you — and all of them are local. You won’t have to pay for shipping or worry if your package will arrive in one piece and on time.

We asked our friends on Facebook for their favorite places to shop – with an emphasis on local and unique stores. The response was fabulous and we’ve collected the ideas, along with some suggestions from our staff, into a nice long list of ideas.

So, get out your list and plan your trip. And don’t forget, if you find somewhere else great, leave a comment here or tell us on our Facebook page.
