As we head into the holiday season that is fast approaching...we've taken some time to outline a few reasons why we believe you should shop local this holiday season. Whether it's at Curiosities or anywhere in London or beyond - consider these reasons as you head out to shop!
You'll find something unique and completely different for everyone.
Forget the chain stores, local boutiques and stores are the route to go for unique gifts this holiday season. Often times, there are unique stories behind the gifts - like where they were made, who made them, and what materials were used. This makes for a more meaningful and memorable gift.
You get good advice.
Small businesses live off quality customer-service. A neighbour and a friend, first. At Curiosities, stop in and say ‘Hello’ - we would be happy to assist you in finding the perfect something for yourself or a special someone in your life.
It feels good. You aren't just "another customer".
Like we said above - we’re a neighbour and friend. We love to learn about our customers and always welcome back returning customers with a wide-open door. PS. we love when customers come in sporting their purchased or gifted jewelry or clothing! Because we are located in a small community within London, we take pride in maintaining that small-shop feel.
You support the local economy.
You do! And it means a lot to the small business owner no matter where you are. When you shop at the big box stores, a large majority of the money leaves the community...but not when you shop locally. The money stays right in the community - we all support each other. It’s a win-win!
At Curiosities, you'll find everything entirely designed and created in Canada.
This is one that we stand by. We take pride in stocking our shelves with the unusual and interesting, from makers from across the country. All carefully curated ladies wear, accessories, jewelry, baby wear, greeting cards, home decor, and bath and body products. There really is something for EVERYONE!
