Know what I love?❣️ I love shopping small businesses. In fact, I love it so much that I actually bought a local retail store. Yes. Call me crazy (believe me my husband certainly has), but I am so passionate about the importance of #shoplocal that I stepped into that arena.
Now don’t get me wrong, I shop online as well. And like many, I receive a fair share of Amazon boxes, but I don’t believe ‘online’ will lead to the demise of ‘brick and mortar’.🛍
Humans need contact with each other, whether we like it or not, and local businesses are a part of the tapestry of our communities. Often operated by women, they are connected to the residents and patrons in ways automation and computers can never replicate. Local business owners know their customers and CARE about them. And don’t we all want to be around people who care? I believe we do. 😊
So, wherever YOU live, spread some #love and get to know some of YOUR local shops. They have made a commitment to the town and the people who live there. Return the favor. Support them. You may just make a new friend. 😄
And, if you find yourself in Westport, come in to WEST and say hi. 🤗
Here are some of my favorite places in my town: Granola Bar, Bungalow, JLRocks, OPEX, Specs, Savvy and Grace, Organic Market, Organachs, Cake Box, Le Rouge Chocolates. Most of them are also #womenowned. 😄 Check them out if you’re in the area.
