Top Five Tuesdays – Shop Local

Top Five Reasons I Love Shopping Local


 

  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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. 
  4. Money goes back into the local economy.

    In your face AMAZON and misc big CEOs! Enough said!
  5. 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.
