1. Do you make your own gifts? Buy your craft supplies from locally owned businesses like Creative Encounters.
3. Shop at local art and craft shows like the Orchard School’s 17th Annual Craft Fair on December 7th & 8th in Walpole.
5. Pay with cash to keep more of our money recirculating in our local economy. If you don’t have cash, pay by check (hopefully via a local credit union or community bank) or debit card. Local merchants pay up to seven times more in fees when you use a credit card.
