Shop Local – it will give you a glow!

It’s time to pick a gift for that special person and you need a SPECIAL gift. Find something unique and keep your money in the neighborhood. If half the families in Indiana shifted $6.25 of their weekly budget to buy locally, this would provide an annual contribution of $300 million to the local economy. Everyone can go to Wally World and the other big box stores but you’ll find something one-of-a-kind and made from the heart if you look around your area for a local merchant. Of course, Mass Ave is a great place to check out but there are all kinds of local shops all over Indy: Fountain Square, Lafayette Road, Broad Ripple. Or venture a little further out into the ‘burbs: Zionsville, Avon, Mooresville, Greenwood. You’ll never know what you’ll find. Here’s some links with info on shopping local:
