Last week while walking home from a birthday party, I stopped to look in the window of Nest, one of my favorite interior stores. In the window they had a flyer for The 3/50 project, an initiative created by Cinda Baxter of Always Upward. Her concept, commit to spending $50 each month at three local independent stores. The facts speak for themselves and remind me that together we can have a tremendous impact on our economy. This month my picks are Nest, Three Tarts and Billy's Bakery. What are yours?
