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 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 and a few spots in Baton Rouge, Louisiana too!
Best Places to Shop in Shreveport
