buying handmade, buying locally

in our perfect world, everything you would ever think to need could be found at openhouse. of course, then, it might just be another walmart...but we're smart enough to know that not everyone can find all they need for their long list of presents in our little store. so, we're offering some options to round out your shopping. support other local businesses as well as local artists and designers. we'll let you search out other shops on your own time ;o)
