R5 Made in Westchester Gift Guide

We already eat locally grown foods and vacation in our own backyards (hello, staycation). Why not buy locally-made products this holiday season? Think about it. No importing charges and no visions of under-paid, over-worked laborers in foreign countries. This year, we bring you the best products from the most interesting and creative Westchester-based designers and companies.
