PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5)--The holiday season is upon us. Which means family reunions, putting out the light decorations and of course, shopping.

We all know of Black Friday, but maybe you want to shop the local places and help them instead. 

We have compiled eight local shops to go this holiday season.
