Morris & Essex featured in Portland Press Herald Holiday Gift Guide!

Portland Press Herald Source Gift Guide

I'm still blushing from this wonderfully flattering mention in Sunday's Portland Press Herald. The PPH Source section is focused on everything local and sustainable, and last year they featured Morris & Essex in the "Homegrown" column. This year they put together a short list of sustainable gift ideas, including Morris & Essex Hand-Printed Bamboo Scarves: Gift guide: 13 green ideas for friends, family – and maybe even you. We're in great company there, alongside Weft & Warp, Erin Flett, and Johnny's Seeds, among others. I will admit to being tickled by the Angela Adams comparison, though I'm not sure I deserve it!

Can't lie, I'm actually pretty excited for the bonanza of holiday craft fairs coming up!! I know I always get exhausted and frazzled from all the madness, but I still love it! Happy shoppers, happy crafters, sweet holiday baked goods all day long, general atmosphere of festive cheer. I can't resist it!
