Small Shops of Sonoma County Holiday Gift Guide
Small Shops of Sonoma County Holiday Gift Guide

Every December the Gazette publishes an editorial guide to help readers find locally-owned shops for holiday gifts. We take people out to eat, introduce them to shop owners, give them suggestions for gifts, and wrap it up with encouragement to support local businesses while they shop. Advertisers who support this guide are located by number on our center spread map so they are easy to find. People keep these guides for shopping all year and the guide is on our website at under SPOTLIGHT.
