Due to COVID-19, this year, Halloween means taking extra precautions to ensure our safety and the safety of the people with whom we are celebrating. Among other things, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, we are admonished to avoid direct contact with trick-or-treaters, bag treats individually, celebrate outdoors, wash hands before handling treats, and wear a mask.
I want to add another option to the mix: minimize safety concerns even more by buying inedible artisan made Halloween treats! Let's take a look at a few spooktacular options, crafted of course by members of the Indie Business Network.
