Re: "Shopping locally pays off in so many ways," Dec. 6.
I am writing in support of shopping locally. I bought a handmade mug from a local potter more than 15 years ago, and it is still used every day without a chip, while plates and bowls that were made in foreign countries have long since gone to the landfill. And with the recent fire in the Bangladesh factory, we are made aware again of how our lust for cheap clothing affects workplaces in foreign lands.
So this Christmas, let's take Nigel Hayes's advice and shop locally for all our gifts.
