Ten local businesses took part in LocalShops1's first-ever Local Gift Card Swap.
The idea behind the swap was to keep gift-giving local and encourage members to learn more about the products and services other local businesses offer, says Melane Nelson, who came up with the idea for the Local Gift Card Swap. Melane and her husband, Doug, are owners of Growing Up, a children's store and learning center in St. Petersburg.
In addition to Growing Up, these were the businesses participating:
Caroline York Real Estate Co.
Michele Tuegel Contemporary
Hyde & Seek Baby Boutique
Stash: a Place for Yarn
Franny & Franky
Your Travel and Cruise Concierge
Mary Kay rep Elissa Barfoot
Your Travel and Cruise Concierge is based in Tampa; all other participants are in St. Petersburg.
