Everyone is talking about Occupy Wall Street these days. This isn't a post about the "rightness" or "wrongness" about corporate America. Greed comes in many shapes and sizes and we could blather on all day about how so many things need to get fixed. I, instead, say Occupy Small Business! Frankly, in the wake of such turmoil and dissension I like to turn my attention to things I can do to create positive change in meaningful ways. TheBrokins.com, over the next couple of days, will be featuring some local NWA business that we think deserve your attention and your money! Supporting our local economy is so vital! During this holiday season the best way to stimulate our economy, support our community, and keep quality businesses alive is to shop local!
Grey Dog- A Vintage Boutique
Grey Dog would be my pick for the best new business in Fayetteville. I am diggin' their vintage chic style. Nestled in a funky Airstream off the side of College street, you'd be surprised by the one of a kind treasures! I spoke with Molly Clark, the fabulous owner (or should I say own-ess?!), the other day. She was excited to explain how she travels and purchases one of a kind pieces from everywhere (even Japan!). Her passion for beautiful and timeless pieces was apparent. A down to earth, kind, and creative gal, Molly runs Grey Dog and is building an awesome reputation for her business. I am a big fan of kickass women who are engaging their communities in new and inventive ways!
Shopping at Grey Dog is a great way to support a business that is offering quality products. I think Grey Dog Boutique does an awesome thing by breathing new life into previously loved items.
