Shopping local works for Sisters folks
By Jim Cornelius
News Editor

Let's face it, Christmas shopping can be a pain. Fighting traffic, looking for parking - it's enough to drive a person online.

But there's another alternative: Shopping right here at home in Sisters. Sisters artisans and merchants make a special effort not only to offer wares that are not found just anywhere, but to make seeking out that unique gift a pleasant and personal shopping experience.

"Right now, Bedouin," said Suzanne Carvlin. "I love their hand-crafted pottery and mugs!"

Speaking of mugs, Marilyn Cornelius confessed that she bought one for herself for seasonal libations at Canyon Creek Pottery. And she also got one for her daughter's Christmas stocking.

"I got a lot of my shopping done at The Hen's Tooth," said Elizabeth Kirby. "They just have a wide variety of stuff that people I shop for like. They've got really cute earrings - and they play really good music while you shop."

Lance Trowbridge gets double-duty out of his Christmas shopping - supporting Kiwanis outreach programs while getting a nice gift for friends.

"I'm a See's Candies distributor for Kiwanis, so that's what I give friends for Christmas - See's Candies," he said.

Dera Rosdahl told The Nugget that she shopped for coats for family last year at McKenzie Creek Trading Co.

"They've got a lot of great stuff there," she said.

Erin Borla told The Nugget that she gets a lot of mileage out of a visit to the Lions Club annual bazaar, where a variety of work by local artisans is gathered in one spot.

Whether you're looking for home décor or jewelry, clothing or something whimsical, there's some place in Sisters that has just what you're looking for. Savvy local shoppers know that all it takes is a little bit of time to get out there and explore...
