New twist on shopping local

I was going through my “pile of stuff for future reference” and came upon this quote from David Bentley that he sent me last year.

This great suggestion for bringing dollars to our local economy may be a little too late for some of this year’s gift-givers, but remember ... there are birthdays and special occasions year round!

“I’m so into shopping locally that I asked all my out-of-town relatives to give me local gift certificates. And you know ... they’re doing it. I may not have any surprises under the Christmas tree, but I surely will have fun shopping!”
