Shop from your favorite local makers and small businesses, right from the comfort of your home!
When you buy from a local business, not only do you help preserve our community's charm, but you also help the local economy: 70 cents of every dollar spent at a locally owned business stays in your local community; when you shop at Amazon or big box stores, less than half that stays local.
LocalShops1 is subsidizing all costs to develop and maintain this site, and not collecting any listing fees or commissions. So all your money goes directly to local makers and small businesses, except for credit card transaction fees. Unfortunately we can't control those fees.
It takes 50,000 locals spending just $20 each on a local business to pump $1 million into our local economy. We can do that!
