10 Reasons To Shop Local

Rikki Teeters

Shopping local has so many benefits! When you support local businesses, you make a positive impact on the world around you.

10. Know Your Makers - Shopping local gives you the opportunity to know the people who make your products. Local business owners have more accountability than "Big Box" store owners. If something is wrong with your purchase, you can speak directly with the person in power to fix your problem. No long customer service calls. Since local products are made near you, most can be customized to meet your specific needs. You can take personalization to a whole new level.

9. Strengthen Your Economy - When you support local businesses, you directly boost your local economy. Strong locally owned businesses raise property values. They also put their taxes back into your local economy. Local business owners tend to support other local businesses - so your local purchase starts a cycle of local support! Studies show that 68% of money spent locally stays local compared to less than 50% at chain stores. Strong local businesses inspire more competition and foster innovation. More competition = better products & services + more choices for consumers.

Fern Shop Cincinnati

8. Create Jobs - Local businesses hire locals to staff their companies. These jobs tend to have higher wages and better benefits. Local businesses always create local jobs.

7. Support Local Families - When you make a local purchase, you directly support local families. Many families of small business owners struggle to make ends meet each month. Your support literally puts food on their tables and a roof over their heads. Often people vocally support their favorite local businesses without actually financially supporting that business as well. While word of mouth is fantastic, it does not pay the bills. Small local businesses rely on neighbors and community members to keep them alive.

6. Find Better Quality Products - Locally made products are made with love. The artists & makers that create each product, care deeply about the quality of their goods. Local small business owners know that they are going to be held accountable if their products are sub-par.

Fern Shop Cincinnati

5. Get Healthy - When local makers create products by hand, they are very careful about which ingredients go into their products. Makers tend to create more eco-friendly products. Some of the world's best natural goods companies are located in Ohio! Food is also healthier when grown locally. It is easy to find out exactly where your local foods come from. Not a fan of pesticides and preservatives? Always shop local!

4. Vote With Your Dollars - "Get Political" - Make sure the businesses and organizations that you are financially supporting with your purchases are aligned with your values. With local businesses, it is easy to find out where their profits go. For example, you can choose to shop at your locally owned grocery store which directly supports your local agricultural industry OR you can choose to shop at Walmart and directly support unethical labor, unfair wages, and the killing of small businesses in America. Let's just say, most local business owners are WOKE AF.

Fern Shop Cincinnati

3. Build Community - When you shop local, you build meaningful connections & relationships with business owners in your community. When neighbors take care of neighbors, communities are stronger. Local non-profits receive more support from locally owned businesses. Strong local businesses create a more unique community - which in turn attracts travelers and tourists to explore your town. Communities that support their local businesses thrive.

Fern Shop Cincinnati

2. Save The Environment - Choosing local has a direct impact on the environment on a local and global scale. Since local shops are near your home, you can walk, bike, or take public transit to go shopping - which eliminates nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, and other pollution from cars. You can also reduce the transportation impact from traveling goods. To make mass-produced products, there is a long chain of processes which all negatively impact the environment. When you buy from a local Maker, your product makes a much smaller footprint on the environment. Some local Makers strive to make only positive impacts on the environment with their products and their business practices. 

Fern Shop Cincinnati

1. Buy Way Cooler Stuff - Locally made products are always more unique than mass-produced products. Wear a locally made necklace to work and we guarantee you will experience "where did you get that" moments. And you will feel good while wearing it! Local artists & makers are simply following their true calling. It is their destiny to create. They are the mediums through which amazing ideas are transformed into real life creations. There is a special energy transferred in handmade goods. When you purchase a locally made good, you are also buying the positive vibes instilled from the product's creator.

Blink Art & Light Festival Cincinnati

Rikki Teeters

Cincinnati's first Blink festival was a must experience event. As one of the largest projection-mapping light shows in the nation, Blink brought together a diverse group of people to celebrate light. Local artists built light exhibits spanning 20 blocks across the city. We experienced the festival on Friday night. It was absolutely beautiful (the lights and the unity).

Cheese 101 at The Rhined

Rikki Teeters

We love cheese! When we found out about the new cheese shop opening in the Over-The-Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati, we were thrilled! The Rhined is an artisanal Cheese shop that carries Ohio Made cheese as well as many other high quality American cheeses. We recently took the Cheese 101 course offered by The Rhined!

We joined 14 other cheese lovers for a night of cheese tastings at The Rhined. Owner, Stephanie Webster, took us on a tour of 7 cheeses from all over the US. Our favorite cheese was a local cheese made in Kentucky called Kentucky Rose! Yum!

The Rhined uses handmade pottery as their dishes. Do you recognize this beautiful local pottery? It was made by our June 2017 Ohio Maker of The Month RHEINOceramics!

Ohio Sunflowers at Cottell Park

Rikki Teeters

If you know us, you know that we love Sunflowers! Each year we adventure around Ohio to find these sunbathing beauties. Mid-summer through early fall is peak season for blooming Sunflowers. When we received word that some of the first Ohio Sunflowers were blooming at Cottell Park in Mason, Ohio, we quickly ventured out to find the seasonal flowers. The field was already filled with people when we arrived. We loved seeing so many people filled with delight from flowers.

Studio Tour With Ohio Artist Ellebrux

Rikki Teeters

We were fortunate to get a behind the scenes look at the studio of local artist Ellebrux.

She hand makes everything from jewelry to art and gifts. Make sure to check out our interview with Laura from Ellebrux to learn more about her business and background.
