Make Life More Fun: Think Local, Think Shindigz When Planning Your Next Party

Shindigz has been making waves in the party industry since 1999 as an online retailer, but their roots date back to 1926, in South Whitley, when they started as Stumps Party. Shindigz owner, Shep Moyle, and Social Media Coordinator, Kristen Baumert, give us an overview of the small, family-owned-business gone number-one-place for party supplies online, which continues to operate right in our own backyard.
