Holiday Guide 2021

Sometimes holiday shopping can be so stressful, am I right?!  Especially in the midst of a pandemic, and worldwide shipping supply issues, and all that messy stuff.  So I think the best way to go about your holiday shopping this Christmas season is to think smaller... small shops that is.  They have their own stock, they generally aren't suffering from supply issues, and you'll be supporting a real person trying to make a living off of doing what they love.  So I've compiled a short list of a couple small shops you can try out this season for everyone on your list.
