Why Shop Local?

Clearly we are a bit biased, but there are many many reasons to buy local.  Here are a few of our favourites:

    • You keep money in the local economy and create local jobs.
      • You don’t just support our makers, but they spend locally too helping to keep others in employment
    • You nurture community
      • Our makers are very active in their local communities, with stalls at local fairs and farmers markets
    • You help the environment
      • No shipping long distances.  Think of it as “goods miles”!
    • You invest in entrepreneurship
      • We have been amazed at the “get up and go” of our makers and by the way they have inspired others to follow in their footsteps
    • You get the best customer service!
      • We like to think so!!
