PDD Shop Talk: Last call for 2022 donations

(Enter the amount of your choice.)

Perfect Duluth Day will celebrate 20 years of being Duluth’s Duluthiest website on June 29, 2023. Earlier in the year, we’ll be relaunching the site under a new WordPress theme and hoping we don’t break everything in the process. But before we get further into explaining that, we lead with the standard plug for donations to ensure the whole operation remains solvent.

So if you appreciate the thorough listings of hoopla on the PDD Calendar and/or the features on the PDD Blog, kindly drop a few bucks in the PayPal account.
