Buy Local for the Holidays

'Tis the season of craft fairs and holiday sales. Now that holiday shopping is upon us in full swing, I thought I'd point out some of the places I'm shopping which will support local people and keep the money in our own communities!

"Our biggest event of the year, the Hot Shops Open House features informative art demonstrations and live music, plus, most of the Hot Shops artists have their studio doors open to the public! Live music, informative demos, cool art, dense location -- a genuine good time."

There's also the option of armchair surfing and buying local, through! On Etsy's homepage, there are several links down the left hand column. If you scroll down to the "Explore" box, you will find a link that says "Shop Local," which gives you the option of choosing the location you would like to search.
Look at all these great local Nebraska finds:
