It’s part of our mission at Triad City Beat to help elevate local businesses and champion the things that are unique to our cities. And there’s no better time to demonstrate it than the holiday season, when most of us spend more of our disposable income than in the rest of the year combined.
Increasingly, the way we vote with our dollars is becoming the most important voice we have.
We’ve all seen the memes: Spending money locally keeps our dollars in our own corner of the economy. It benefits our friends and neighbors rather than faceless corporations. And it’s an investment in the culture in which we all participate.
You can’t buy your way into the TCB Local Gift Guide — it’s strictly the purview of our editors, and not our advertising department, to curate this list of the very best from local businesses, local makers and local performers.
It matters, we think, just as it matters to spend locally this holiday season.
Ahhh food, the gift that gives us life. Whether it’s a welcome midday relief from annoyances of the office or the memory of a family holiday tradition, there are few things as precious as food. Chances are good that you know what your loved ones daydream about eating, and unlike a lot of the gifts your grandma might usually give you, it’s pretty easy to ensure that a food gift isn’t going to waste. Here are just a few of the countless array of food-related things you could buy someone this holiday season, so check in about your cousin’s allergies and then dig in. Read More
The Three Cities boast eight breweries, and more recently two distilleries, each with a unique gifting opportunity. Here are the best choices from each, starting with the distilleries. If none of them speak to you, look into a gift card to your gift recipient’s favorite local bar or bottle shop. Read More
Seasonal markets, Triad-wide, are loaded with local, craft goods.
Your best bet for crafts is to steer towards the South End arts and antiques district flanking South Elm Street in Greensboro and the Downtown Arts District hugging Trade Street in Winston-Salem. For holiday craft shopping in High Point, you’ll have to be a bit more intentional and pick a particular retail establishment to visit.
There are more potters working in the Triad than would be possible to mention everyone in this space. Between functional and purely artistic modes, the number of styles is virtually unlimited. For fine pottery, check out Greenhill in Greensboro or Piedmont Craftsmen in Winston-Salem. Also in Greensboro, Molly Lithgo and Jim Rientjes curate a selection of fellow potters at Earthworks Gallery. Gordon Jones sells his wheel-thrown pottery and raku-fired wares from Earthbound Arts, the gallery he operates with his wife Lucy Duncan in Winston-Salem’s arts district. NC Authentic Goods is the go-to for pottery in High Point.
