I carry a lot of coastal items. I also love to carry repurposed and recycled items. I look for companies that give back a portion of their profits to charities.
My first choice is to carry products made in Orange County and California. Second phase is to carry products Made in the US. If there are imported items I love, I try and buy from California based importers.
I had always wanted to open a small retail shop. When the opportunity presented itself, I wanted something that would differentiate my store from others and appeal to the shopper. I feature Specialty Foods and tabletop items, some home décor. While searching for food brands, I found quite a few that were manufactured locally and decided to try and source as many items as possible from within California. Then name came naturally….Local Fare.
