If you want to stick it to the corporations out there, I suppose you could Occupy Fremont and set up camp next to Waiting for the Interurban.
Or you could make your holiday gift purchases as local as possible.
There’s lots of really cool gift ideas available from Fremont artists and plenty of them can be found in shops like Portage Bay Goods (621 North 35th), Dusty Strings ( 3406 Fremont Ave N) and Frank & Dunya (3418 Fremont Ave N).
Some of those items include, but are not limited to the following. Do yourself a favor and do a search throughout Fremont’s many shops for more local products and offers.
