Local matters at the Keys Weekly — Local news, local writers and local owners.

The same goes for our Holiday Gift Guide — Local shops offer items as memorable and unique as the islands we all love.

Online shopping is an undeniable convenience, but mix things up a bit this year, with some one-of-a-kind presents from paradise. Now more than ever, local matters.
