This year’s Montgomery County (MOCO) Housewives Local Business Shopping Guide is brought to you by three impressive, local businesses: Carlisle Collections of Clarksburg, Infinity Home Remodeling and the Dr. Ronald Shore Medical & Cosmetic Dermatology! We just published our MOCO “So Social” Holiday Guide of “She-Hero” Entrepreneurs rocking their social networking home businesses. This guide features another collection of amazing businesses; ones offering products and services from their storefront and/or “on the go” taking their business mobile to their customers!
We titled this Holiday Shopping Guide the “So Thoughtful” guide because we intentionally sought to include gifting options that might be a little less obvious than the average gift this holiday season. We’re confident that this guide will “present” [pun intended!] you with numerous “think outside the box”, unique gifting opportunities sure to put a smile on your beloved’s face as we seek to be creative, caring and intentional gift givers this season!
Again, these are companies that call Montgomery County, MD and the surrounding area their home and I love to be able to show them love and support during this "gifting season”. I welcome you to take this opportunity to check out the products/services and specials they're offering as we seek to SHOP LOCAL for the holidays!
