Buying in Your Own Backyard Shopping for the holidays? There are ways to do it that benefit both the recipient of your gift and the local economy. Whether you're giving a box of chocolates, a fine bottle of wine, scented candles, fashion accessories or something more practical -- like a space heater to take the edge off those cold Northeast Ohio winters -- we'll tell you how to buy local, whether it's made here or headquartered here. What's your favorite local gift? Join us Tuesday morning at 9:00.
