Well, it’s happened again. The holiday shopping season has snuck up on me and I’ve barely started a list, let alone purchased any gifts for family, friends and colleagues.
But while it may be tempting to hop on my laptop and load up an Amazon cart with items that will delivered straight to my home, I’m not going to do it.
Because I’m passionate about supporting local businesses at Smith Mountain Lake.
I’ll be shopping small at SML this holiday season and have put together my list of top reasons you should be, too.
