Shop Local and N&R Bargain Blog Readers!

I am excited to announce that Piedmont Triad Living is a featured site in the Links of Interest section of the Bargain Blog in the online edition of the Greensboro News & Record! 


I've always enjoyed reading Mike Fuchs column Savvy Shopper in the Greensboro News & Record, which highlights retail news and deals in the Triad.  A few years ago he began The Bargain Blog,  which is a roundup of the best deals out there, with a focus on the Triad.  I use a ton of resources for Piedmont Triad Living, and the Bargain Blog was the only place I found the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile visit in Greensboro last Friday!   You can  always link to The Bargain Blog on the bottom left of this page, under  "I follow..."

I read Savvy Shopper and The Bargain Blog because they help me support locally owned businesses.  Another resource I use to support local artists and craftspeople is the Shop Local feature on Etsy.  This is a fantastic, worldwide host for  handmade and vintage sellers.  Etsy makes it easy to shop local-- there are hundreds of artists and crafters from the Piedmont Triad with a shop on this site!  You can always find featured local artists on the right-side column of this blog under the "Shop Piedmont Triad Local Artists and Artisans" column.  Click on a picture and it will bring you straight to their shop!

If you're a new reader,  welcome!  I focus on fun family activities and events that are free or less than $20 for a family of four.  You can follow Piedmont Triad Living on Facebook, Twitter, and here on the blog!
