Shop Local for Valentine's Day

Pick up a gift for your special someone.

James Thurber once said, “Love is what you've been through with somebody,” and for families this could be a near perfect description of the emotion.

This year, make Valentine’s Day an opportunity to show true appreciation for those closest to the heart. Parents, kids, husbands, wives and partners, don’t hesitate to make special plans or buy a little something to show how much you care.

A family consists of some of the people known best to each other, so remember to put some thought into the effort. Someone who receives chocolates might better enjoy the gift with a handmade card, and someone who cooks every night could really appreciate a dinner date out on the town.
