Shop Local! Philly Family Community’s Picks for this Holiday Season

Here's who our team and our community named as the best local shops to support this holiday season.

When it comes to holiday shopping, there’s nothing that gets us in the spirit better than supporting our community, and picking up unique and meaningful gifts. We picked our favorite local shops, and asked our Philly Family Community for their picks as well. And of course, we loved looking at all the shops’ beautiful Instagrams, so we couldn’t help but include them too! So follow your faves, and get out there: here’s our 2018 Shop Local Guide!
