christmas series part 3


This is the final post of this series for the 2013 holiday season. To read the other two posts, click here and here.

This final installment will focus on SHOPPING LOCAL! As you have probably seen, we had our own campaign encouraging our readers to #shopcowetafayette. While there are awesome deals to be found at big box stores and websites, it’s always great to support businesses in your own community.

We’ve had some great businesses participate in giveaways during our campaign. These businesses include:

Minter’s Farm – Haven’t gotten your tree yet? Go to Minter’s NOW! One of our awesome readers won a free tree from them – how awesome is that? This is also a wonderful place to get great vegetables and jams/jellies throughout the year. Check out their website here!

Tupperware by Charlene Nicol – You can’t beat the quality or long-standing reputation of Tupperware. One lucky winner won a Squeeze it Decorator and Simple Indulgence Cinnamon-Vanilla Seasoning Blend. This is just one of the many awesome products that Tupperware offers. I really had no idea how much cool stuff they had – and now I want it all! You can contact Charlene via phone call or text @ 404-451-0024. Check out the fun stuff on her Tupperware website!

Giggles & Grins by Brittney York – Awesome local photographer who does AMAZING newborn and family portraits. Learn more here. You can also check out her website and Facebook page!

Aesthetics MD spa in Tyrone – Get pampered (or send a loved one to get pampered)! You can read about Marsha and her wonderful spa here and visit her Facebook page here.

Mary Kay by Heather Robbins – Continuing with the pampering trend, we had an awesome giveaway sponsored by a local Mary Kay consultant. Give the gift of awesome makeup, skincare, and more. Check out Heather’s Facebook page here.

There are many other great places to shop local.  A few of my favorites are:

Chloe’s on Main – Adorable boutique in downtown Senoia with clothing for women and children. They also have so many adorable gifts. Check out their selection of Mudpie brand items and clothes made to fit American Girl dolls. They are always so friendly and helpful in there, too!

The Pink Chair – Amazing clothing boutique in downtown Senoia. I LOVE their clothes and accessories. The customer service is amazing here, too. If you need to buy something stylish for a female friend or family member, go here!

Funky Trunk Consignment – I love this store, which is located in Sharpsburg. I always find something for at least one of my girls (and sometimes myself). The stuff is always in great condition and, of course, the prices are great. Definitely check them out!

Loganberry Beads – This is a local jewelry artisan, Sarah Duncan, who makes one-of-a-kind creations. Her signature item is the “Save the Date’ bracelet, which is a bracelet that is meant to signify a special date (birth of a child, anniversary, etc.). You can read more here from a past giveaway she sponsored. I have a Save the Date bracelet, and I always get compliments on it when I wear it. Check out her website and Facebook page to see some of her beautiful creations!

One Magnolia Lane – This shop is located in The Avenue, Peachtree City. They have lots of beautiful things that would be perfect for holiday gifts! They have great brands such as Kate Spade, Lily Pulitzer, Brighton, and Alex & Ani.

Lizard Thicket – This store has locations in Newnan and Peachtree City. They have beautiful clothing and accessories for women. Go check them out!

The Woodbury Shoppe – This shop is another Senoia favorite. If you have a zombie lover to buy for, this is the place to go. Fun gifts related to The Walking Dead can be found here. The people at this store are SO NICE and so much fun!

College Collectibles/Betty’s Fine Collectibles – These stores are part of the same company, and both are great for sports-themed gifts. Whatever team you root for, there’s something here for you! College Collectibles is located in Peachtree City, and Betty’s Fine Collectibles is located in Fayetteville.

Bubbles and Brushes – This art studio is located in Newnan and is the perfect place for you and/or your kiddo to make personalized gifts for loved ones. A gift certifcate would make a pretty cool gift, too. Check out their website and Facebook page.

Shenanigans – Really cool toy store with fun gifts and an indoor play area. Be sure to check out their Facebook page. The store has a new location next to Fresh Market in Peachtree City. Go check it out!

We hope you will check out some of these local businesses – make sure you tell them that Coweta Fayette Families sent you! Of course there are so many more awesome local businesses – too many to name here. What are some of your favorites?
