The countdown to the holidays has begun and we’ve selected our 13 Favorite Things for 2013!
These unique local products come from retailers OTP, and many of them have provided deals just for our fans! Winners were chosen based on fan nominations and your Scoopers’ positive experiences with these products and companies. Some of these products have been previously Scoop Approved and are already on our website, while others are brand new products or stores that we are sharing for the first time.
