The question of Shop Small and Buy Local is a quandary. Because I love local, and I love small. I’m local. I’m small.
But sometimes I need so many paper towels and they flat out don’t have what Costco has at the local pop up shop….
And sometimes my Instagram friends in Texas have dug up the coolest stuff and put it in their Etsy shop and I neeeeed it.
And I have had women in Canada, England, Australia and South Korea buy jewelry from me!!! (No less thrilling California, Maine, North Carolina- every destination makes me happy).
So I don’t have an answer. I adore people who have an idea and turn I into a livelihood. I’ll keep supporting all of those, wherever they may be.
