The jolly day is just around the corner, and I can bet that a lot of us haven’t had time to even think about Christmas, let alone buying gifts for our nearest and dearest – but have no fear, We Love KB is here!
With the hustle and bustle of the festive season, we’ve put together a guide to Shop Lokal: 2020 Christmas Edition.
This list comprises many local faces from businesses around the Goldfields, specialising in art, design, home décor and giftware, as well as options for the little ones.
Consider your Christmas shopping sorted!
