I have a Locals Only section, and as much as I love my community to support, there’s also online shops from friends and family. Lauren runs a clothing site, Emerging Thoughts. The past year I've researched on how to be a better consumer, and what companies to support. Emerging Thoughts is an American company carrying indie designers, mostly American-made and designed. Lauren is one of the easiest women to work with when it comes to business (and just easy to talk to all around). I was also featured on their blog on why small business at the end is really the biggest business you can support. My inner entomologist is loving their Bumblebee Hair pins.
