Earlier this week I rounded up my favorite spots to shop in both my current city, Washington, DC, and my hometown of Shreveport, Louisiana. I wanted to separate the two into individual posts to make them easier to comb through!
As we’re in the midst of the busiest shopping days of the year, I wanted to give a little love to my favorite local small businesses. I’m partnering with American Express to support their Shop Small Saturday campaign on Instagram and it prompted me to share my favorite small businesses here on the blog as a resource for you! I wanted to share where I love to shop in hopes that you’ll find a new, local business to support too!
While I love shopping online, I also love shopping locally. It’s so important to support small businesses in our communities. Unless, God forbid, you want your neighborhood to be overrun by chain establishments. So get out this weekend (and this holiday season) and support your local shops, I promise they’ll thank you!
In this post I’m sharing my favorite local spots in my hometown of Shreveport, Louisiana. I’m home this week for the Thanksgiving holiday, and I couldn’t help but mention all of the spots that I make a point to stop in while I’m home visiting.
If you’re interested in checking out my favorite small businesses to support in DC, check out my Best Places to Shop in DC post!
