Holiday Shopping at Westmoreland Heritage Sites!

14925380_1354235794621117_8453347117138031363_n.jpgIt's that time of year again... either you love the festive nature of the holiday season, or you're sick of the commercialization of the whole "gift giving" tradition. I, admittedly, lean closer to the latter category, mostly because I don't like having to look for parking spots at the mall or waiting in long lines. Hey, I'm a very impatient person.

However, I have plenty of friends and family who love holiday shopping, and plenty more who prefer to support local businesses over big-box retailers. So if you're looking for something unique for the holidays, consider topping by one of the several Westmoreland Heritage sites whose gift shops are open and ready for your patronage! I know I will!
