I love giving my business to individuals whether it's online or in town. It's inevitable that a certain amount of my money must go to big box stores but when I can, I like to shop with real people.
This wonderful magazine is from Tracey at French Larkspur. She has a wonderful online store where the customer service is 1st rate (a big pet peeve of mine) and the attention to detail is top notch. You can find her store listed on my sidebar under Places To Go. And I want to tell you guys something. Those are all places that I love. Not because anyone has sent me anything for free or offered me something in exchange for featuring them there. I get a fair amount of those requests, believe me, but I'm not that kind of girl. I'm not going to recommend a website, blog or store to you for any other reason than because I believe in it and I want to share it with you.
