About us

Welcome to our blog. The Luken family lives in South Hills. Kim (Mom) is a grad of Drexal and you can thank her for most of what appears here.  We love reading and hate TV.  When  Kim’s not business-y she is a TV-cord-cutter-book-lover. We love letting our kids have fun with unstructured time to think for themselves.

Our posts look at Christmas shopping online and offline, the old vs. the new.

Shopping online is fast and shopping in local Christmas market is festive if corporate sponsors aren’t too “in your face.” We advocate shopping with local vendors over big box stores, but we also know that online shopping presents the same challenges of local vs. the big guys who may not help our community as much.
