from the founder
"The December Issue was inspired by the "Shop Local and Shop Small" theme that we all support during the holiday season and everyday here at RICM! The creative gift issue allowed our local retailers an opportunity to showcase their craft and story. We have provided a nice variety of gift ideas and creative tips for all of you to explore. I hope you enjoy the fourth issue of Volume 3 and shopping local this holiday season!"
