5 on Friday: Home Grown – Charlotte Edition

It’s another 5 on Friday link up with the lovely April of A Liz Adventures!


I’m a huge fan of supporting local, small businesses.  If I have the opportunity to buy from someone local, rather than someone with a massive marketing budget and a huge staff, I will!  Support the dreamers – the doers – the neighbors!small business 1

I like to expand my network of local vendors, and often times explore a new area of town to pick up what I purchased or to shop (and I really don’t like paying to ship items because in some cases, shipping is way too high).  Today, I wanted to share 5 of my local favorites with you (in no particular order)!

*if you click the image, it’ll direct you to the item posted or the overall website.  no one asked me to blog about the below businesses.  actually, out of the 5 listed, I only know 1 business owner.*

I think it’s super cool that the 704 logo flips upside down and is still 704

I stood on line for a few hours in 2009 and was the 3rd person to meet Roy Williams and have him sign my copy of Hard Work: A Life On and Off the Court.

Happy local shopping!  🙂

  1. As the daughter of small business owners, I know how important it is to support small businesses, so I always try to go that route whenever possible. Plus, it’s so nice to shop somewhere where it feels so friendly and personal.
