This past Sumday was Mother’s Day I the U.S. and I had the chance to spend Saturday with my mom. The weather was decent and we went out for Lunch together as well. I don’t live that far from my hometown, but I never seem to get down there very often. One thing my mom and I like to do when we get together is go shopping. Whether she comes here or I go there, we always seem to end up going shopping. My hometown has a lot of charming little, locally owned shops. Actually, the city I live in now also has many locally owned shops. My hometown is best known for it’s antique and home decor shops. I was pleasantly surprised to find that there is a clothing boutique for younger people there now. The owner was a bit older than me in high school, so I didn’t know her well. Now she’s got two store locations. She sells designer brands, which is a very pleasant surprise for this town. There aren’t any other clothing stores there. My mom actually lives “downtown” so we only have to walk down the street to go shopping.
I found the boutique to be adorable and the clothes are just my style. I definitely ended up taking something home. I got a light blue dress as you can see above with the cutest pastel necklace and earrings.
I’m always happy to buy local when I can, even when I know I’m paying more. Even with the higher price tag, I know I’m helping out the community and more often than not, the product I’m buying locally is of a higher quality.
I’m not strict with buying locally, but I try to when I can. Are there any things you prefer to buy locally or any places you prefer to shop locally?
Buying locally is a big deal in my current city, so I’m curious to see what others have to say
Thanks for reading 😊
