While we’re not quite in the Christmas / Holiday season yet, we have a lot of preparation to do! We’ve (Ridder, Scott and Shannen) always been proud to shout out our favorite local businesses, and we want to give you the opportunity to do the same – but in a big way.
Our Milwaukee-area has some GREAT shops that deserve to be recognized. That’s why we’re doing our “Shop Small Brawl!” We’re looking for your favorite spots to shop locally for the holiday season! Whether it’s a boutique full of clothes, a mercantile of makers, a shop with a bunch of home décor – we want to know your secret spots!
We’ll be creating a bracket with the top suggestions, and then it’s up to YOU to do your part and vote for your favorite shop as they go head-to-head. All voting will happen via Instagram and Twitter (@fm1061mornings).
Once we can crown a winner, we will do a special video feature on that local business before Shop Small Saturday! We’ll make sure to give you the FULL list of recommended shops on our blog page, as well!
