'Tis the Season to Give Local!
Gift-giving doesn't need to be impersonal or corporate. We don't need to elbow through throngs of strangers in a big box store, or click "Add to Cart" alone in our pajamas. We can opt instead to give gifts that are made by people we meet, in places we visit, profiting interests we actually share.
The goods and services in this guide are created by people like you. They're passionate about what they do, and they're responsible in how they do it. They'll wave to you at the dog park or at a PPNA meeting. They'll spend some of their profits at Public House or donate to Friends of Patterson Park. They're neighborly, in every sense of the word.
In these pages you'll find a thoughtful gift for the host, and the favorite treat for the office potluck. You'll find the most stolen gift in White Elephant, and the gift certificate for the person who has everything. You'll find stories, spirit, and connection.
Thanks for putting your money where your house is, and supporting the work of neighbors who care about our Patterson Park community as much as you do. May your days be merry and bright!
