In this "will we won't we" world consider the small businesses reliant on the Christmas fairs to showcase their beautiful crafted gifts. The businesses that sell their wares and make 50% of their profit in the next 3 months are basically....up a creek without a paddle.

We've always championed buy local having won the Small Business Saturday Top 100 Small Businesses Award because buying local does so much for your local economy and communities. So when you open your gifts on Christmas day imagine the smile on a small business owners face too if you buy local.
