For many people this time of year is a busy one. Finding time to spend with family & friends. Taking in a Christmas show or school Christmas concert and of course the shopping. Who really enjoys going to the big box stores amongst the crowds of people and trying to find that perfect gift amongst the made in China tags? Why not turn a new leaf this year and take the #100localdollars holiday challenge! There are so many locally owned and opearted businesses here on PEI that create great quality products and with so many craft fairs happening there is no excuse not to shop local. And your taste buds will thank you when you take a trip to New Glasgow, the heart of Canada’s Food Island.
