One of the best things we can do is to support our local businesses.  Below are several people who either own their own business or create handmade items to sell.  If you have a business you would like for me to add, please email me with the information, and a photo, if possible.  I will send you a copy of the guidelines. Please read them carefully, before you send your business submission.  I hope this helps all of us find and support our local businesses.  If you have any questions, email me at  Please put Local Business in the address bar so I can address it quickly!
