Skip the big box stores this season and shop local instead! One of my favorite things about living in La Canada is all the wonderful independent shops we have. Especially during the Holidays, it’s so fun to browse these boutiques and find the perfect gift for someone made by local artisans. These are some of my favorite shops in our local community.
