So much great fashion in the area, and so many hardworking entrepreneurs. The boots are from a local, indie shoe shop: Craig's Shoes. You can read about them here:

I already want to know where those boots came from!

Promoting local shops is a great way to support the local tax base and local families who run these businesses. Shopping in town also unclogs the roads and helps build community. Glad to be part of this project and hope we can do it again with even more local shops involved.
