Spring 2020
The Perfect Combination By Debbie Eisele

Two Florida retailers making and selling their own lines.

More and more, customers are looking for retail experiences that offer merchandise with a story and purpose. They are also looking to shop where there is a sense of community.

Two retailers in Orlando, Florida, are offering unique made in the USA items that truly hone in on a sense of community. Each shop creates a majority of its own merchandise, which is then paired with product from select vendors to curate an ideal mix for customers who desire home-grown product, experiences, a story and uniqueness.
