I am all about trying to shop local. No surprise there! I don’t always succeed but I always try. And this fits in just perfectly with gifts to give this season.
First, no matter what the gift try to shop local. In midcoast Maine my preferred go to shop for gifts is The Nobleboro Antique Exchange. No surprise there either 🙂
This year some of my lucky friends are getting hand made coaster with scenes of their favorite things. Others are getting ironstone, antique hand blown glass cloches,
a hand-made Santa tray, ho, ho, ho!
and vintage christmas ornaments.
Just a small sample of all the fun ideas you can find at the Antique Exchange, and all for under $75.00 and many less than $50.00.
Of course for the painter in your life we have all sorts of fun painting supplies. Brushes, waxes and paint.
But when I do go outside local, Anthropologie is my new go to store.
