A super hip pop-up craft market hosted by my favorite brewery, Trophy on Maywood, and near home? I can’t find a reason to say no to this awesome combination! This year, more than ever, it is important to shop locally for your holiday gifts. Our state’s economy has been hit hard by hurricanes and tropical storms, especially on the coast . I am grateful that Raleigh was not affected to that degree this year. Spending your money locally – whether it’s a coffee shop, hardware store, or a local artist, it all helps to keep your money in our community and in our state.
