We Continue Buy Local Month 2018 Presented by BuyLocalBG.com! Here is the Second week of events.

Buy Local Month 2018 is a shopping, arts and entertainment event from November 15th- December 15th. We wanted to give southern Kentucky the chance to take those local dollars during the gift giving season and keep them local (meaning with local merchants in southern Kentucky, Louisville and Middle Tennessee since we know traveling does take place for these shopping trips). The key is to find the non-chain stores and shop the small to medium businesses in our area. We are also during this month via Facebook and Twitter going to give HYPER-LOCAL giveaways (via social media) with local artists and businesses. Here are the events through the Buy Local Month (click highlighted links for more):
