I know this community loves to support local businesses, so I’ve continued the annual tradition of publishing The North Shore Moms Local Holiday Shopping Guide.
The 2023 Guide highlights local small businesses sorted by type, along with their store location, website and where to find them on Instagram and Facebook. Some businesses are featured partners and their listings include more details, plus EXCLUSIVE discounts for readers of The North Shore Moms.
I hope this list helps make your holiday shopping a little easier!
