Happy Thanksgiving! We’re spending it together (of course) with our family and plan to eat all the things. We love watching the NYC parade in the morning and playing games after dinner. When we started to brainstorm ideas for this post we got really excited about the idea of being thankful for local businesses. We have been mentally collecting a bunch of local shops we love and really want to tell you about (especially for DIY projects) and with a growing emphasis on supporting small local businesses during the holidays, it seemed the like the perfect fit. This is a bit different from the typical gift guides you’ll see as we put our own twist on it - trying to strike a balance of offering content whether you’re in wedding (or maybe wedding shower) planning mode or not.
Ok, we can’t wait any longer! Here are local shops we love, want to support and hope you’ll take the time to visit. We can also virtually guarantee this won’t cost you more than shopping at a big retailer online (unless you decide you want all the things in the store, like we do), which is why we are loyal customers.
We hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and start to your holiday season, let us know about any local businesses you love!
