local loves

do you know about The 3/50 Project? it's a movement that encourages spending at locally-owned businesses, which is something i try to do as much as possible, anyway. with everyone making their holiday wish lists, i thought i'd share a few of my faves with you. you can order online through some of these shops, some are happy to take an order by phone if you see something on their site, and some will direct you to local businesses in your area in their "where to buy" section. others, you'll need to pop in to enjoy. i hope you enjoy and are inspired!
