Naas Art at Irons in the Fire (Radio Transistor Jewelry) #IBuySI


Barb Naas is a creative and talented artist that infuses radio transistors with stones to create a one of a kind piece of history and jewelry. For many of my media friends, these items might bring back some memories. You can stop in the Irons in the Fire Mercantile and Trading Co. in downtown Carterville, IL to purchase or you can go to her Facebook Online.

Rendleman Orchards Basket #IBuySI


One of our local orchards in not only known for their amazing apples, but they also have some of the most amazing apple cider donuts (world famous). You can pick up or have shipped some very affordable gift baskets that will make anyone want more. If you want to give out something to your clients or business colleagues, check out their Facebook Page for all the amazing products.

Crown Brew Gift Box #IBuySI


Hands down my favorite coffee in our area and it is also available for order online. This holiday season, the team at Crown Brew have special gift boxes put together just for the holiday season. Who doesn’t like coffee? Order online or stop in the store in Downtown Carterville, Illinois for a real #BrewItBetter experience.

Money Bags Book #IBuySI


Local author Wendy Gillespie is doing her part on helping parents educate their children on money and finances in her book MoneyBags. If you have children age 5 to 12 and want to start them on the road to financial security, buy this book and put it in their Christmas Stockings this year.

Nubability (Sports Memorabilia) #IBuySI


If you are a sports buff (All Sports) check out this year’s items that helps raise money for an amazing organization that started in Southern Illinois, but has now gone national. From shirts, cards, socks, sock hats, and many more, you will find something for your sports enthusiast this Christmas. You can also make donations to Nubability through their website.

Beverage Bearing Cradle (Quadrail) #IBuySI


I recently received an AM 15 rifle for my birthday with a quad rail. For those of you that are gun enthusiasts you can find just about any accessory for quad rails. My local friend and gun guru, Todd Ellis, created this BBC (Beverage Bearing Cradle) just in time for the holiday season. If you want a good laugh and a great product you can use, buy a BBC and go reindeer (I mean deer) hunting this Christmas Season.



The ONLY place to get the original craft beer shirts is from BrewerShirts. They have a great line of clothing for that craft beer snob in your life. Some of my personal favorites are the: Corporate Beer Sucks Shirt, My Blood Type is IPA+ Shirt, & the Beer Drinking Moose Shirt. They have clothing for both men and women along with other craft beer accessories that you could stick in your special someone’s stocking (along with some beer).

Skull Rider NYC (Hats, Ties, & Bow Ties)


Sometimes your wild side needs to get out and you just need to show people that they shouldn’t mess with you. Skull Rider NYC has some of the best and most affordable bow ties, ties, and sock hats I’ve worn. My favorite new product is their skull rider sock hat. It is hands down one of the warmest one’s I’ve ever owned. Coming from a shaved head guy, you want this hat in your closet for the cold winter months.

CollarXElbow (Independent Wrestling Clothing)


If you have a wrestling fan for a friend like I do, then you will want to check out this line of Independent Wrestling clothing. Use the code: MY123CENTS and save some money and support my buddy Kevin Hunsperger. Wrestling is just more than WWE and these men and women work their butts off for little or no pay in the independent arena. Let’s show them some support. They have a variety of men’s and women’s clothing along with the special 2017 Christmas Shirt (Above).

From ALL of us at Harness Digital Marketing, may you have a wonderful and blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year.
