Want to be included in the 2017 Shop Local Holiday Guide? We are taking submissions from neighbors and shop owners that would like to have an item included in our neighborhood guide.
As Ballard residents start shopping for holiday gifts, this guide will help them shop small, right here in Ballard’s West Woodland neighborhood. Buying local has a big impact on our neighborhood and surrounding communities:
1. More tax revenue, for community services like education, road repair, and more, stays in our communities when you shop local
2. Local nonprofits receive 250% more support from local businesses than from large businesses
3. More local purchases means less transportation/shipping transit, which is more environmentally friendly
4. Shopping local supports local, quality jobs for our neighbors and friends
We can’t make this guide without your help. Help us, help you!
Submit the following via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) by November 15, 2017 in order to be included in the guide:
a. Item photo
b. Item description
c. Business name, web address
