Putting together the local gift guide has always been one of my favorite annual traditions. Who doesn’t like to give something made by or sold by someone in our town? Also, because most of the makers I featured last year are still gong strong, here’s even more ways to buy local.
A lovely hand-dyed silk scarf that comes in every color of the rainbow; a rough-edged clutch in leather and bleach-dyed fabric; a starry, dotty blouse from Denim Saloon in Dundee; a dress with an unforgettable collar from Omaha’s Hello Holiday.
A gift both functional and funky for the friend with an old, drafty house; a gorgeous wood iPhone case; a small work by artist Christina Renfer Vogel for the burgeoning collector; a pair of fuzzy beauties made for a cold day like today.Tweet
