Welcome to the third annual Lake Country Family Fun’s Shop Small Holiday Guide!
If it isn’t painfully obvious at this point, we love Lake Country – we love Waukesha County – we love Milwaukee, and of course, we love Wisconsin. The area is full of fun events, the people are absolutely outstanding, the food can’t be beat, and we have some of the greatest small businesses around. I always try to shop local and shop small when possible. It helps another small business owner provide for their family, lets their dreams flourish, and it is what makes us unique here in our area. As a busy Mom, I love to stop for what I need instead of going through mazes of aisles. This holiday season and throughout the year, let’s skip the big box store when possible and head to these businesses to support our local businesses and neighbors. Gift cards are the perfect gift for you hard-to-buy-for relative and friend. All the business featured below have been recommended and approved by Lake Country Family Fun followers!
What’s even better than shopping small? Giving back to the kids in our community! Nine of the shops below are participating as drop off centers for our Toy, Book, and Mitten Drive for the Christmas Clearing Council of Waukesha County! Some are offering incentives to drop off at their location. Check it out!
Feel free to comment below with where you like to shop!
