Good advice for holiday shopping

‘Tis the season when bus tour companies will soon advertise out-of-town shopping trips. I urge shoppers to shop locally first! Princeton’s Main Street offers a wide variety of enticing gifts at fair prices, with the bonus of having our shopping dollars support our community.

My holiday trick: If I get gift ideas online or from mail catalogs, I take those ideas to local merchants. Often they have the same items in stock or are happy to get them for me.

Take a bus tour to sightsee, enjoy the big-city decorations, and spend time with friends — after you shop at home.
