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!
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.*
704 Shop. Apparel. http://704shop.com/
I think it’s super cool that the 704 logo flips upside down and is still 704
We Live The Finest. Apparel. http://welivethefinest.com/
Honor Roll Designs. Apparel. https://www.etsy.com/shop/HonorRollDesigns
Not Just Coffee. Coffee & Beverages. http://www.notjust.coffee/
The Caramel Latte is DIVINE! I am a huge fan of homemade caramel and they hit the mark! Seriously – love this place!
Park Road Books. BOOKS! http://www.parkroadbooks.com/
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! 🙂
