Shop indie this Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love but it’s also the perfect opportunity to spoil your loved one with a thoughtful gift. Whether it’s an item to wear, goodies to pamper with, something beautiful for the home, or a surprise weekend away, opting for something special from an independent shop will not only impress your loved one with its uniqueness, it also helps to keep our small business community thriving! Stylist Sally Meier has curated a lovely selection of items for both him and her to save you a little bit of work this February!
