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.

New Years Resolutions! Shop Local!

Happy New Year to you all from Susan and myself.

As you can imagine we are very excited with all that 2010 has to offer. We can't wait to to keep building . The oppurtunites in front of us seem endless at this point. We've got more vendors to get on the site, newlsetters to go out, PR strategies to start implementing, marketing schemes to set into motion, our diabolical plan to take over the world 100 miles at a time is slowly unfolding. It looks like it's going to be a wild and crazy ride!

New Years Resolutions? Hmmm... I've never been one to give serious thought to New Years resolutions, usually I make resolutions in the spring and fall. It feels like there is more change in the air as the seasons change...To me the New Year seems to fall right in the middle of the winter rather than at a key turning point.

What the heck, here goes. There is always the tried and true. Dieting always seems like a good idea this time of year, too much feasting has gone on lately! Stop spending, start saving, seems like a no brainer this time of the year too. Another old stand by, make exercise a priority, thank goodness it's ski season, at least that makes some of the exercise fun!

Now you've got to see this coming... My big resolution this year, drum roll please, I'm going to make an even greater effort to shop locally! I think Susan is too! How about you? Do it, shop local!

Happy New Year! All the best to you in 2010!
Shirley and Susan
