A Local's Shopping Guide to the South Shore

A Local's Shopping Guide to the South Shore

The holiday's are here and the shopping has began. We wanted to do a round up of some local small businesses for you all to be able to shop small and local this holiday season. It will make checking gifts of your list much easier! 

The list could go on and on, it is so wonderful how many incredible small businesses are scattered along the South Shore. I stuck to the spots I frequent often and I have a whole other list of spots I have not visited yet- maybe that will be for another day!
