The best resource for great local shopping!

There is amazing stuff close by – local artisans and independently owned retailers, cool things to do and eat, and great charities to support. It’s good for the economy, the environment and the soul.

Tuesday, December 1, 2009 is LIVE!

Yeah! We've finally gone live! It is official. You can now go to and we are up and running. We have over 100 vendors to choose from, so go have a look!
It is totally crazy right now for Susan and I as we try to check all the stores for any small glitches, we are in the midst of putting together a newsletter to let all the vendors know we are live and also orchestrating a customer newsletter. The list goes on and on.

We are always on the prowl for new vendors. I found a couple of great new ones at an event I was covering for SNAP called Tea for Teens, run by the Junior League of Toronto. The Laundry Tarts, you have to check them out! Jess and Michelle have just gone live themselves.  They have this amazing product that is TOTALLY LOCAL! Great for the enviroment and safe to use. Can't ask for more than that. We can't wait for them to get their store at 100 mile finds put together.

I also met Marci Lipman, remember her? She had a t-shirt empire here in Toronto. She is now recreated herself and selling her own honey and other fantastic locally harvested yummy delights. We're hoping she comes on board too., For now, you can check her stuff out on her own website at Check her out too.

So much to do, so little time!

Have a great day!
