SBSGG | New Christmas Tradition :: Annual Ornaments

Since we’re often broke and traveling over the holidays, my boyfriend and I decided not to buy presents for each other this year.

So for this Small Business Saturday Gift Guide post, I wanted to share the lovely ornaments we picked out and the great little shops where we found them.  Continue reading
