Local gift roundup

In case you haven’t noticed, our little city is brimming with talent. I could go on for hours about the talented people I know and the amazing things they create. I won’t, but I could.

With this much creative talent in one town, why look to any place else for Christmas gifts? Below, a round up of some favorite locally made items that would make great gifts for everyone on your list.

      Ahhhaha! Nice. Great minds do think alike! The Oxford American subscription is a great idea! And I love that Big Cats t-shirt. Did you write this? I’m adding the Hipster Alert to my Google Reader right now. 🙂
