In the midst of your holiday planning…

We’re here to remind you to Think Local First! Supporting local businesses is one of the best ways to make the most of the holidays and strengthen our community at the same time.

As you peruse the authentic and welcoming spaces of locally owned shops, you’ll feel thankful for beating the long lines and crazy big box crowds. The hardest part of shopping now, is deciding which specially crafted treasures to bring home with you.

Celebrate our place and our people! Savor this time of year and all its abundance with the ones you love. Seasons Greetings from the Sustainable Connections!
