The Gift of Community Support

December 9th, 2021

Shop Local: The Gift of Community Support 

The holidays are upon us. As Christmas lists grow, we rush to place perfectly wrapped presents under the tree. During the hustle and bustle, it is easy to depend on the simplicity of online shopping, where our carts are filled with a simple click of a button. 

In the spirit of community, it is important to remember our local shops, artisans, and businesses who form the heart of this special place. Every village in the region offers a little store or boutique that is the perfect fit for your holiday needs. Instead of spending an afternoon cooped up by your computer, scouring the web for quick deals and fast shipping, a day spent strolling the streets of our local hamlets can guarantee a gift full of thoughtfulness and love. 

Millerton offers lots of options for unique gifts and antiques sure to please anyone on your Christmas list. A variety of fine art and local treasures can be found up and down Main Street. While Salisbury provides the perfect Saturday outing of cozy boutiques, scenic drives, and delicious food. Make a day out of your shopping by stopping by The White Hart for a heart-warming meal full of New England charm. If material gifts are not part of your holiday tradition, pick up a gift card online or in person. Giving the gift of time and food is always appreciated. Great Barrington also offers a great shopping experience with many restaurants, stores, and boutiques to walk door to door.

The holidays are a great time to enjoy our community and cherish the time we spend together. Local shops make our villages unique, and form the foundation of our downtowns. With the impact of Covid-19, it is now more important than ever to remember to shop local and support the heart of this special place we all call home. From our families to yours, we wish you a beautiful holiday season ahead.
