Holidays on Main Street

Apollo, PA antique shop

I’ve spent a lot of time out and about in communities lately and have enjoyed seeing small businesses prepping for the holidays. I thought I’d share some photos and encourage the placemakers and small business people among you to keep going. Keep taking pride in your places and storefronts. Keep running holiday promotions. Keep selling seasonal merch. And keep celebrating!

The photos here reflect the places I’ve visited, mostly shots in preparation of Christmas, but I want to wish peace and joy to folks of all faiths and traditions.
