Tis the season for Christmas carols, stories of Old Saint Nick, and the joy of giving! It’s also the season to shop local. Gift-giving is twice as nice when it also supports a local business, and here in Chickasaw Country, there are top-notch local shopping options sure to bring holiday cheer. Here are a few on our radar:
Khanh is a children’s clothing brand created by Blanchard local Khanh Hogland. She enjoys creating timeless and stylish pieces for your little ones.
