Burgie The Elf wants you to shop local. And if you spot her at a local Warrensburg Chamber member business you could win a gift certificate.

Here's how to play the game. Starting Monday, Dec. 14, Burgie will be traveling all over Warrensburg visiting numerous chamber member businesses. You can keep up with her travels on the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce Facebook and Instagram Pages.

If you  happen to visit the same business Burgie is visiting and you spot her, take a picture and post it to social media with the hashtag #BurgieTheChamberElf and you'll be entered to win a gift certificate from the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce.

Don't want to miss Burgie? Keep up with the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce's social media posts and you might just find a clue where in Warrensburg Burgie is hanging out so you can snap that picture. The contest runs from Monday December 14 through Friday December 18.

The chamber has also published their Christmas Mini Catalog 2020. Some of the items featured in the Christmas Mini Catalog that spoke to me are a unique looking Moonglow Necklace from Tranquility Shop on North Holden. This unique piece of jewelry might be perfect for the earth mother in your life.

Bread of Life Books and Gifts has Buy One Get One Free Hallmark Candles, as well as super soft Hallmark Holiday Blanket. I received a blanket twenty years ago as a Christmas gift, and I still use it all the time. These gifts might be perfect for the person in your life whose a little harder to shop for.

One of my favorite holiday shopping trips was when I first started making some real money and I went to a jewelry store to purchase my wife a set of gold diamond earrings. Glasscock Jewelry Corner has everything from a very expensive Rose gold wedding set to a nice Sterling silver diamond pendant priced at $99 dollars. I'm sure they'll help you find the perfect gift in your price range.

If you're looking to update your holiday Decor you should check out The Trendy Bluebird on West Young. They have a cute Christmas Reindeer Pillow and Sitting Stuffed Reindeer that just make me smile. (Even though I'm partial to moose more than reindeer.)

Other Warrensburg Chamber Member businesses featured in the Christmas Mini Catalog include Rise Crafts & Curiosities, Western Missouri Medical Center's Auxiliary Wishing Well Gift Shop, Laser Quick Printing, Pack 'N' Mail, Alewel's, Shoe Sensation, Powell Gardens and Photo Gym.

Take some time this holiday season and support Warrensburg businesses by shopping local!
