Shop Wyoming for the Holidays

Tuesday, December 04, 2018

The Christmas Countdown has begun and there are just seven weekends left before the big day. It’s time to make your lists and start your quests for those perfect gifts.  

But listen, we get it! You want to shop locally; you want to contribute to your community and support your hardworking neighbors. But the season goes by in a blink, and before you know it, you’re scrambling for last-minute things (anything!) at those big-box stores. So, this year, we present a Holiday Shopper’s Guide to Wyoming-made products that make terrific, unique gifts that can even be shipped directly to your loved ones. Easy, thoughtful and way more fun than spending Christmas Eve scrambling under those bright florescent lights. 

Each week of the season, we will be adding a profile on a different Wyoming company that makes unique giftable items to this guide. We could go blue in the face telling you about all the benefits of shopping from Wyoming companies – dollars that stay in our towns pay our residents, keep our prices down, feed our kids, fix our roads, add to our culture and diversify our economy. Instead, we’ll let your neighbors – the artisans and shop owners themselves – tell you what it means to them to have your holiday business, and tell you what makes their products worth that moment of extra effort. Stay tuned.

“Birmingham Landmarks, Inc. certainly made the right decision in selecting NCDS to raise the $7 million needed to fully restore our sadly dilapidated and abandoned former vaudeville theatre in downtown Birmingham.  Your firm provided the wisdom and experience to position the project as worthy of support, then structured a winning campaign that was creative, energizing, and relentless in pursuit of the goal.  We were especially appreciative of your flexibility relative to our early cash flow issues, and even more so in the selection of the assigned NCDS Project Executive.  Because of the success and momentum of your phase of this exceptional campaign, the Lyric staff was able to continue seeking commitments utilizing tax credits, and the total raised now exceeds $11.8 million.  Thanks to NCDS, Birmingham can boast of having one of the most spectacularly restored performing arts theaters in America.”
