This holiday season, take more time to slow down, be where your feet are, and enjoy the magic around you.
When you shop local, not only does your money stay in your community and help create local jobs, but you also help the environment due to less transportation and packaging. That’s why this Local Treasures Gift Guide aims to make holiday shopping personal, thoughtful, and close to home.
