*OVER*Win $10 Amazon Gift Card! Ends 6/17

I’m interested in learning how many people support their local community, charities and small businesses.  I live in a small town and there are lots of little shops that line the streets downtown. There are so many great small businesses out there that need community support.   When was the last time you bought something from a small, locally owned business?

I love it when I find a local business that makes a product or offers a service that I need so I can keep my money in the community. Do you have a favorite local business where you live?  Are they involved in your community? 

Here’s one of my favorite local businesses.  
They source their food locally, they work with local charities and they support local artists.
Great food and coffee, huge heart and lots of love for their hometown.
