Shopping Local Louisville - Pre Holiday

{Some goodies for the mama's to be}

I haven't started my holiday shopping yet, but my goal is to do as much as possible at local, independent retailers who sell locally made products. We owe some of our friends and family some baby and wedding gifts and so I decided to start with the local shopping early - it should really be an all the time type of deal.

I started with colorful burp cloths from The Diaper Fairy, who upcycles the cloth diapers she takes out of rotation by dying and bundling them. Then I headed over to Mama's Hip to pick up some of my favorite baby and mama products, a few of which happen to be made locally by Divine Creations and Peace of the Earth.

For our friends who recently got married we bought a lovely bottle of Kentucky bourbon - Blanton's and I stopped in at Greenhaus for some Cellar Door chocolates and some Argo Sons coffee - but alas they were out of coffee. So this one still needs a little something to finish it up. Any ideas?

I had so much fun going to all my favorite places and it felt really great to know that my money is going back into our community. Now to come up with locally sourced Christmas gifts for my family - there is so much to choose from.
