Don't drive far, stay close to home and shop local!  Oldham County has many locally owned businesses.  We highlighted a few of our favorite places to shop in Oldham County this holiday season.  Maybe you'll find yourself stopping in a new place for the first time and seeing what great businesses we have in our area!  Not only will you find one of a kind items and activities, you will develop relationships with business owners living in your community!  Here are a few gift ideas!
