Hey everyone, it's officially "shopping" season and it's time to look at the calendar. Wow, did you look? There aren't many days left until Christmas, and don't you have a LOT of people that you would like to delight with gifts?
This Saturday, from 11-7, the Flying M Coffeegarage, holds it's 3rd annual "Hip holiday Market". It is a fabulous collection of local artists, and their unique gifts - you will NOT want to miss it. This year there will be more artists than ever before, and if you haven't been to the M for a while, you'll note that there is a lot more room in the "garage"for the biggest market ever.
If you are planning on spending any cash this year, please consider shopping locally (no, not at your local Walmart), but by businesses that are owned by local people, who live in your community. And if it's possible, look for items that are made by hand by people you live near. A simple choice to purchase locally, will benefit our community and brings so much satisfaction. Meet the person who created the product, find out that they live within 10 miles of your home, and their handicraft is made without compromising or threatening your family's employment.
I hope to see you there! Join the local and handmade revolution.
Here's a sampling of what I will have to offer...
