IVCBA, Shopping Local This Holiday Season

Shopping Local This Holiday Season

By Kayla Anderson

In years past, Black Friday - the day after Thanksgiving - was always the biggest shopping day of the year, but now with supply chain issues, shipping delays, and bare shelves at box stores, Black Friday may be history. Now it’s about shopping small, shopping local and getting quality unique products that last a while and have some style to them.

Local Nonprofits Feeding Those in Need

The Holiday Season is full of pretty decorations and festive events thanks to Northern Lights. Our community is buzzing with excitement as we near Shop Small Saturday and our stomachs growl at the thought of Thanksgiving just one week and one day away. Our community has been known to be Inclined to Give. We have aggregated a list of many of the nonprofit organizations giving back to those in need in the community.

Truckee has one. Tahoe City has one. Even Kings Beach has one! That perfect tree beautifully decorated with holiday lighting. The one that represents the festive spirit in the community and in our hearts. The one that is a focal point for a community gathering. That perfect tree has eluded Incline Village Crystal Bay for years. Is it because most pine trees grow together in a cluster? Or that the tops have been lopped off to accommodate power poles? Or just that we find it difficult to even identify a town center?
