Last year we started Buy Local Month. Not because we weren’t happy about Small Business Saturday but because we believe shopping local, being entertained locally and acting local shouldn’t be contained to one day after the big box stores had their sales. We wanted our community to be one that supported our local musicians, artists, musicians and children during this holiday season. We have started delivering our Holiday issue of our magazine and you can pick those up at partner locations. This is going to be a page you want to book mark as we have become a curator of all things local. Here are some of the events, sales and other things you may want to see this holiday season:
