The 2014 Green Lake Holiday Gift Guide

November 26, 2014 7:02am


We’re excited to announce our first Green Lake Holiday Gift Guide. In our call for submissions, we asked for gift ideas of products that were either:

  • Made in Green Lake
  • Created by Green Lake residents
  • Or about Green Lake

We weren’t sure what we would get, but we were certainly amazed by what we received!

We hope these ideas will be a reminder of the creativity and entrepreneurial spirit all around us, and what’s possible when you shop local–even in our own backyards. Happy holidays!
