Connecting shoppers who crave a local shopping experience to local independent merchants online.

Coming Soon.

Hands down, shopping at independent merchants means better service. They don’t bury their contact information on labyrinth websites. Nor do they have endless customer service line-ups like at big box and national retailers. And you never have to be frustrated trying to find an employee to answer a simple question. Instead, you get to engage with passionate owners or knowledgeable staff and experience real customer service.
