A Local Shopkeeper's Guide to Shopping Local this Holiday Season

by Jen Villa

As owner of The Little Beach Gallery, an art gallery and gift shop in Hyannis that features over 40 local artists, I understand the benefit of shopping local. I make that a priority year-round in my own life.

I've decided to share some of my favorite choices for shopping local for this upcoming Holiday Season… that is, before or after you stop by my shop! Happy Shopping!
