I am very honored to be listed in the 2009 Minnesota Gift Guide created by an organization called Minnesota 2020. Check out the many wonderful businesses offering great gift ideas made here in Minnesota.

According to their research, when you spend $1 at a local independent business, an average of 68 cents is re-circulated into the local economy. In contrast, when you spend $1 at a national chain, only about 43 cents stays at home.

You will also find some of my friends and favorite shopping places in the gift guide, like The Market on Oak in Farmington, Ferndale Market in Cannon Falls and Cannon River Winery.

Consider buying the special people in your life something handmade locally this holiday season.
