Last Minute Gift Ideas from Look Local Marketplace
…#GiftLocal with Look Local Marketplace this holiday season and let us help you check everyone off your list with a curated selection of unique and locally-sourced gifts from our 27 vendors!
Hopefully you’ll find some inspiration from these ideas and visit www.looklocal.cato browse the hundreds of great products that these vendors have on the marketplace — knowing that when you #ShopLocal, you also #GiftLocal, as Look Local is donating $1 for every item purchased on the marketplace until December 31 (with proceeds to be divided among food banks in Oakville and Burlington).
