Here at the Shoppe we are thankful for our community members who choose to support our creative & unique local economy. Small businesses like us really depend on locals shopping local.

We are grateful for the thoughtful leadership that kept us all informed of risks and best practices for safety. Their consistent simple messaging allowed our county to reopen to the community as well as visitors from all over the country.

And we are thankful to those of you who chose to support us from the comfort of your home by shopping our online store.

If you’re able, please come downtown and support as many of our local small businesses as you can this #plaidfriday and #smallbusinesssaturday!

Stay smart, stay healthy, and see you soon.

New puzzle alert! 🧐

Can you insert the dime into the large circle area with all the other pieces? We challenge you to solve it in under 5 minutes. Very few will accomplish!
