I have been inspired to blog by my irrepressible desire to shop and my intense anxiety about the materialist culture we live in. So instead of beating myself up I have decided to promote the best shopping I know of. That is local. Not just locally owned businesses, but products that are produced locally. Food, flowers, crafts, art, clothes, furniture and anything else I can think of or find that is made in Nova Scotia (or very close to NS). There are so many amazing, skilled, creative folks here and I think with a little effort we can really show that we care about investing in products from home. So I invite you to join me in consuming the best of what NS has to offer. Let’s give gifts that have a story, that support local people and communities, and that celebrate the wealth of our place. Here.
So please let me know what you think is rad, beautiful, practical or genius. I will post photos and hints. Shopping spots and craft markets. I want as much help as I can get so please chime in, pipe up and tell the world.
I am looking for contributors! Please if you want to write a post for this blog I would be so grateful. A collaborative space is the aim. Review your favorite local product or service, write about your best NS shopping experience, share an event or tell us what you think about local economics, handcrafts, community supported business or whatever you have a passion for.
