If you scoffed at the idea of fighting crowds in an effort to check off your Christmas gift list on Black Friday and planned instead to let your fingers do the shopping on Cyber Monday, consider doing so locally.
Of course not all Polk County businesses provide online shopping, but local artisans’, bakers’ and businesses’ wares can be found at PolkCountyGifts.com.
“This venture began as a dream to unite local businessmen and women and offer a hyper-local eCommerce site,” said Elizabeth DeChant, president of Tiamoc Enterprises. “Customers can order anytime, from any computer.”
So now anyone looking to grab gifts this holiday season, specifically from Polk County businesses, can do so even from afar.
PolkCountyGifts.com currently offers more than 30 items crafted by local entrepreneurs. The site features items from La Bouteille and Cinn-ful Nuts. It also carries items from the PolkFresh TradePost at the Mill Spring Ag Center, including wares from Dan & Judy’s Woodworks; sculptor S. Harris; Made by Melissa; Jess’s Jams, Jellies, and Butters and Hawk Hill Farm, to name a few.
The site is also working to add new artists and crafts people such as former Mayor Bob Neely, Diana Gurri, David Lee, Melinda Lawton, Amanda Lauver and Catherine Gurri.
Polk County Gifts arranges for the pick-up and delivery/shipping of the items.
Contact Polk County Gifts by emailing tiamoc.enterprises@gmail.com, calling 828-619-0203 or stopping by the office currently shared with kiveo at 78 N Trade Street in Tryon between Elmo’s and Foothills Realty.
