The time is always right to support local makers and business owners but in light of the shelter-in-place orders many of us are under, there has never been a better time to show your local shops some love.
March 29 is National Mom & Pop Business Owners Day. It’s the perfect excuse to celebrate your friends, coworkers, neighbors and community members who own and operate their own businesses. If you aren’t sure where to start, I want to share a few of my favorites with you …
Here are a few other local shops worth supporting online while we shelter in place:
For the book lovers
If you’ve never visited Interabang Books in person, add it to your list for places to visit once it is safe to do so. In the mean time, you can order online to support this local bookshop. And check out their social media for more information on book recommendations too.
For a little bit of everything
Did you know you can shop The Vintage House from home? It is so fun to browse the pretty pink shop in Historic Downtown Carrollton but for now let’s just be grateful we can shop their wares while safely at home.
For the candy and soda lovers
If you’ve already eaten through your chocolate rations and all the secret Easter candy, it’s okay. Blooms Candy and Soda Pop Shop offers online shopping of a wide selection from salt water taffy to enormous gummy worms. They even have quarantine soda. Yep, that’s a thing.
Let’s all show some love to our favorite mom and pop shops!
