The weather outside might be frightful, but you know what’s scarier? Waking up at 5 a.m. the morning after Thanksgiving to fight the crowds. Instead, head to your local downtown this Saturday!
Here’s how I like to celebrate this very wonderful holiday.
Step 1: Wake up and have breakfast at your favorite local coffee shop
Step 2: Head to your local downtown Main Street
Step 3: Browse your favorite local stores
Step 4: Buy gifts
Step 5: Head home and watch Elf
In all seriousness, the holiday season is a crucial time to go out and support local stores as well as Maine-made craftsmen. Hit up a local church bazaar, head to a school craft fair or simply make the time to buy a gift at your favorite local store.
