There are so many great local vendors for people to support. There are vendors who do handmade soaps, woodworking, jewelry, home décor, and so many more. One of our favorite local vendors is Gypsy Waves Studio.
The Local Vendors In St. Cloud Are Amazing Especially Around The Holidays
Hart Art is another local vendor where Jeanine purchased an early Christmas present for somebody. They hand paint everything there and do custom orders which is what Jeanine had done. She loved what they did for her.
Z & Q is a children’s boutique store in downtown Saint Cloud on New York Avenue, and they have a mailbox for letters to Santa. All of the letters put into their mailbox actually get a response from Santa himself.
