As the window of shopping days narrows, the thought of getting out and about can be daunting. If you’re looking to still shop local, check out these online retailers.

Gaston County is brimming with creatives. From designers, to potters, to artisans, the creative juices are flowing, and we are here for it. Whether you’re looking for something as a gift or for yourself, before going to your usual suspects, check out these Gaston County makers. And who knows—maybe they’ll become a new favorite! (And maybe they’ll boost some inspiration for you to start something of your own!)

Pro tip: Because they’re close by, send your maker a message and ask if you’re eligible for pick-up and forgo the shipping costs.
