Quote of the Week

Owen Pach

“Gulfport is a quintessential old Florida cottage community on the bay. We are blessed with some of the best restaurants anywhere, and it’s a haven for the arts. As an artist I fell in love on first sight. Where else can you have great food then stroll to artists’ studios? It’s the coolest place you never heard of. You’ll love this place too.” - Owen

LocalShops1

LocalShops1
Tampa Bay Area, Florida
www.LocalShops1.com

LocalShops1.com is the area’s most active advocate for local, independently owned businesses in the Tampa Bay area. We work with businesses, charities and other cool groups to come up with creative ways to make our neighborhoods better. Shopping locally has the economic advantages, of course: Money spent locally is more likely to stay locally. But it's not just about money. These are the businesses that link us to the past, and ensure our communities will have lots of character in the future.

LocalShops1.com grew out of a list founder Ester Venouziou kept on a scrap piece of paper at home, to help her parents find cool shops and restaurants when they were visiting from New Jersey. Ester then started a group on Facebook, asking for suggestions on shops and restaurants to add to the list. Soon LocalShops1 was born.
