Uptown is the place to be on one of the biggest shopping weekends of the year, as we can boast NO ridiculous lines, NO capitalism-induced-riots or fighting, NO Hatchimals/fidget spinners/hoverboards/what-have-you, and TONS of unique, handmade, and local items that do not put a single dollar in Walmart’s oversized pocket. 🙂 PLUS, you can make a day of it with breakfast and coffee at one of the Uptown cafes, lunch at one of the fabulous small restaurants, a walk through the art gallery or just around the block to see some of the storefront decorations, and maybe even a drink at one of our local breweries. With all of the recent development down here, there is so much to do! It’s a great time, and we love to see the support for our neighbors!

See you soon!
