holiday shopping...finally at 10:31 AM

After an unproductive Saturday waiting around to get a washing machine (finally!) i  now have  a day to get something done and i am super excited about  doing my holiday shopping on historic 25th and supporting local businesses. A while back i made this guide of local and independent stores i  love. there is still plenty of time so don't panic grab some coffee, take a stroll and check out what your town has to offer.
