Keep your money where your heart lives, support an economy of friends and neighbors and build a community that thrives by thinking local first. These are just a few reasons to shop local. We try our best to source our products from local, sustainable artisans, chefs, entrepreneurs and businesses and we are so excited to showcase some of them here today. When we support locally, we are reducing environmental impact, investing in our community, keeping it unique and creating more local jobs.
We love being able to support our local suppliers, one of whom is Karla Chambers, co-owner of Stahlbush Island Farms as well as a very talented artisan. We have her wonderful paintings on display in our garden store, and we just received some of her decorative soaps, ceramic art and candles. The mini Monstera leaf hand soaps and coconut scented candles are out of this world irresistible.
