The author of this article kindly requests that any gentlemen reading this, stop what you're doing and look at the calendar. Today is Valentine’s Day. That means you have less than 8 hours to bring home something that expresses your undying love and affection towards your sweetheart.
While the guy selling roses off the exit in New Haven may be tempting, the truth is they will be wilted by Friday. (Take my word for it. I’ve received them). This year take a simple approach to Valentines Day and stay in town and shop local.
Stop in at one of the wonderful little shops along Main Street Durham, and you’ll find thoughtful gifts everywhere. Shops owners are expecting wild-eyed last minute shoppers and are ready to help you. Check out the gallery to help get you started.
Editor's Note: We also love Perrotti's Country Barn in Middlefield. Got an idea for local shopping on Valentine's Day? Share it below in the comments!
