Independent retailers often stock those special, one-of-a-kind items that you won’t find anywhere else. Plus, when you shop at a locally-owned business, your money stays in the community and supports the home-grown artists and producers who helped make the items you purchased.
To help inspire your holiday shopping this season, we’ve compiled this list of sports and outdoors products from some amazing Futurpreneur-supported businesses.
