Where Can I Find That? Where Can I Find That?

How many times have you said to yourself, "where can I find.... ?"

In conjunction with The Towns and Villages of the Battenkill Valley and Main Street Press, the Cambridge Buzz is going to try and help you answer that question. We will help guide you to find services that may not be as easy to find -- we're talking everything from oil changes to massage. It's here in the Battenkill Valley and we're going to help you find it. Gas is not cheap - save your valuable time and our natural resource, shop locally, support your friends and neighbors and stroll our Main Streets, keep your tax dollars in Washington County and most of all enjoy your shopping experience.

As we move into the holiday season we will create package suggestion for you, making your gift giving fabulous. We will seek out finds under $10, $20, $50 and $100 so that your gift giving is plentiful.

Here is how it works. You make a comment right here on the Where Can I Find That? blog entry and we'll point you in the right direction. Here are a few simple questions:

1. What have you tried to shop for recently, but could not find locally or did not bother to look for? Be honest we want to help you and the merchants have what you both need--a product and a buyer.

2. If you could find it locally, would you buy it locally? Cost is always a factor - do you consider your time, gas money and taxes when buying it cheaper somewhere else?

3. What services have you looked for recently - plumber, electrician, handyman, massage, mailing, etc?

4. Do you think you can find what you want in the Battenkill Valley?

Either cut and paste these questions into an email and send it to Debra Pearlman or put your answers in the comment section at the bottom of this posting.

Each week we will feature local merchants or services. You can ask the featured business questions by posting a comment on the blog. They will answer your question and help you find what you are looking for.

Our goal is to help you shop locally for the goods, services, and gifts you need. This process may also bring to you the goods, services and gifts that are not here.

Get started today by letting us know what you need or want to find in the Battenkill Valley.

I am looking for a farm that raises goose for a Christmas dinner.
