Top Five Reasons I Love Shopping Local
- I can most likely walk there!
Hooray! Shops down my street are so much more appealing than big box stores that I have to drive miles to get to!
- Owners bring their pets to work.
I love how small business owners can just do whatever they want because they own the place. And that includes bringing their dog to work! Love being greeted by a pup at the door.
- There’s a good chance the owner is working on the products right in front of you (and might even ask your opinion about it)!
I love watching artists working on pieces (jewelry, sewing, anything!)
So cool to see the artist in her/his process.
- Money goes back into the local economy.
In your face AMAZON and misc big CEOs! Enough said!
- They remember your name and what you like! Maybe even save the last item for you since they know you are coming.
Love that first class treatment! I would never get that at Target.
