The holidays are fast approaching. Wouldn't it be great to give a basket filled with nothing but items "Made In Connecticut". Here's how.

God knows I love to shop! So holidays are totally my thing. I subscribe to the "one for you - one for me" theory. But it also does my heart good to shop locally and support local vendors and crafts people. So I was excited when I came across this story on  FOX61 about Connecticut resident Lorraine Mancini and her baskets full of nothing but Connecticut made items.

 "Basket Full of Connecticut" can be sent all over the country. That'll take care of your Aunt Erma in California. Just call me and Lorraine your Holiday Elves! While you're at it, feel free to send one to me at for me!
