white mountains

We've all found ourselves sticking closer to home this year and that means exploring more of whats in our own backyards. We've felt extremely grateful to have so many wonderful small businesses in Littleton and the surrounding towns. We've had to get creative when it comes to birthday presents and holiday shopping and we've had to think outside of the box and some of our favorite businesses have pivoted to support that. Whether it's shipped gift baskets or cookies, pop up shops or new takeout options, this community continues to amaze us. That's why we've decided to open things up beyond Littleton and tell you about all the places we've been supporting local in the area this year.
