2023 shipping deadlines: Order your gifts in time for the holidays!

Online shopping makes buying the perfect Christmas gift easy! You can order heartfelt gifts made in the PA Wilds, and they can be delivered right to your home (or someone else's) before the holidays. However, it takes time for the elves to package these special presents and deliver them. Make sure that you're ordering your holiday gifts early enough so that they arrive before Christmas.

Surviving the holiday season on the road

Abbi was born and raised in New Jersey, where most of her family still resides. Holiday traditions have been established in NJ, which puts Abbi on the road two days before Christmas Eve and has her returning back to the PA Wilds on Christmas Day in time for dinner. As much as she loves spending time with family and friends, it can be a little hectic to celebrate the peak of the season while on the road, so it helps to plan ahead and plan for surprises.

Libby’s tips for taking care of yourself and loved ones this holiday season

Freshly baked pie, handmade ornaments, twinkling lights, decorating the tree, wrapping the perfect gift for a loved one, and family- that’s what the holiday season means to me. The holiday season invokes many feelings: excitement for time spent with loved ones, and sadness for those who are no longer with me. As I navigate the season, I try not to sweat the small stuff and truly enjoy special holiday meals, mugs of hot chocolate, and snuggling up under my cozy handmade blanket (an amazing gift from a friend last year).

A Labor of Love

Although many people in the United States think of Labor Day as the unofficial end to summer or just a fun day to grill and hang out with friends one last time in the warm weather, the holiday actually began in some of the darkest days of America’s industrial history. When you buy a product from the PA Wilds Marketplace, you can feel proud knowing that these products were dreamt of, designed, crafted, printed and created by artisans who are happily making a living here in the PA Wilds.
