As a local Fort Collins skin care business, it probably won’t surprise you that we love supporting local businesses! And this time of year is a great time to do so since local crops are bountiful and we are doing more shopping than usual with back-to-school season in full swing. Here are some ways we support local businesses in the fall:
Shop the Farmer’s Market
Fort Collins has a few great farmer’s markets that are open for a few more months so we love to stock up on seasonal, local produce while we can. The Fort Collins Farmer’s Market on Harmony and Lemay has tons of vendors and even a crop calendar on their website so we know what they will have available and when. If you aren’t in the Fort Collins area, finding a farmer’s market near you is a simple Google search away!
It’s easy to head to Target, Macy’s, or your favorite big box shop for back-to-school shopping or to update your fall wardrobe. But we like to take the extra effort to support local when we can. One of our favorite clothing boutiques in Fort Collins is Blue Harvest Apparel. It's a beautiful space with lots of flattering clothing options at good price points. For kids clothing, we love Clothes Pony! They have unique and adorable clothing we can’t resist. We also love to head down to Loveland to Vintage Willows for beautiful wardrobe necessities and accessories.
It's not always easy to find backpacks locally, so if you need to do some online ordering, consider using one of these companies: StateBags.com gives a kid a backpack for every one purchased and Parklandmfg.com uses recycled and sustainable materials in all of their bags!
If you aren’t in Fort Collins, just consider where you could shop locally instead of heading off to Ross. Supporting local businesses can be a fun and rewarding adventure!
