It’s hard to believe the holiday shopping season is already kicking off next week! Of course, when you buy goods and services in your own community, it’s not really like “shopping” now, is it? It’s more like helping a neighbor, except that you’re getting something really cool in return. Because they’re your neighbors, it’s probably made with a pinch more love and includes a familiar smile.
So, to make this easy for you, we’ve rounded up some great stops right here in the Northern Neck. Our Christmas wish is that you can find everything you need and more, right here. If you find that you still need a little something, check out our similar posts for the Middle Peninsula and Williamsburg regions.
