Good morning world. Or whoever has decided to enter my space.
Over coffee this morning, I did some thinking. A ready for this terrifying fact? Once I share this news with you, it will be earth shattering. Here is goes… There are only 10 more Wednesdays before Christmas. I KNOW! How did this sneak up on us like that? I am just as devastated as you, I swear.
Now, normally I wouldn’t be one to think about Christmas already. Trust me. Halloween is my favorite holiday, why would I rush past it? But, yesterday I went to Everything Natural. You don’t know what that is? Well, if you love vegan good, fair-trade, and all those hippy clothes that your mother has stashed in her closet then, get there. Now. I promise you will fall in love with it.
Anyway, while walking around the store inhaling the warm scent of incense and fingering through the goodies within the shop, I couldn’t help but think that this was a perfect place to Christmas shop and that I would be able to knock out a majority of my list there.
But then, I thought why stop there? There are so many interesting shops in Downtown Scranton, I am sure to find something for everyone on my list between all of these locally owned hidden treasures.
So, this Christmas I have decided that my goal is to shop locally for all of the gifts that I will be purchasing. I support local stores all the time and often buy items at locally owned stores versus purchasing them at the mall so, I thought why not? I have accepted my challenge and will be supporting locals this Christmas.
