Shop Local

This is WAY cool. Some of my most favorites spots are small, local, yet trendy shoppes and restaurants. We have quite a few in my city and I'm sure you do too! Read this and show some support!

What a super message. I try to support the local economy even if it costs a little more. It just seems like the right thing to do. I grabbed a button and am going to be visiting you again!

You know, I really do try my best to shop local. Unfortunately I have found that the customer service level or our particular locally owned venues and just horrible.

I love supporting local businesses...sometimes they cost a little more...but they also have so much more class. Happy VGNO
