The Challenge Continues: Shop Local!


Amanda and Patrick Bryan of Newport Sweet Shoppe have lots of homemade treats and gift baskets to suit every taste for the holidays. Amanda and Patrick Bryan of Newport Sweet Shoppe have lots of homemade treats and gift baskets to suit every taste for the holidays. The staff at Newport This Week has spent weeks scouring nooks and crannies all over town to find that something special for everyone on your gift list. Next week's edition will include our Checking It Twice Gift Guide with suggestions for everyone; it includes ideas for stocking stuffers, hostess gifts, the gourmand, the hard-to-buy-for teen, and even those who only look for the "Made in the U.S.A." moniker. We have checked our list more than twice, so you don't have to - and you won't even have to leave the island to buy treats for all your sweeties.

For those who have already finished your shopping, well, kudos to you; less fervent shoppers will find an array of delights just a hop, skip and a jump away. Be sure to pick up your copy on Thursday, Dec. 12.
