Shop-Local Gift Guide (Part 5)

“Thanks for putting together the local shopping gift guide,” commented Amy. “I’m exactly in the mood for only shopping local this year—staying close to home and looking for unique gifts.” That’s the spirit! I’ve included items that caught my eye, but I wasn’t price-sensitive, because some people are rich and some people are generous and some people are both, and let’s encourage them. In other words, please don’t whine about how expensive something is.
