Shop Local Gift Guide: Upstate New York Edition – Social Static

Shop Local Gift Guide: Upstate New York Edition

Saratoga Springs is best known for the Saratoga Racecourse, horses, mineral springs, and incredible dining and shopping experiences. For me, it’s also my home base, a familiar place to return from my travels, and where my journey with Social Static began! This holiday season I’m tapping into my roots to share some of my favorite local businesses you can support this year.

This holiday season we encourage you to shop small, then carry that good energy with you into 2022 and shop small all year long. In doing so, you help create a vibrant, sustainable community, and that’s the best gift of all. Need some suggestions? We’ve got you covered!
