The 3/50 Project
Did you wonder where your money goes when you shop at a big box store? How much of it goes back to the community vs. how much money goes back when you buy from a local, independent business?
Visit the 3/50 Project page to learn more about sustaining your local economy.
A few Cleveland area stores I recommend:
Local Girl Gallery, Lakewood, OH.
Bay Arts, Bay Village, OH.
Banyan Tree, Tremont, OH.
Also search on etsy for "clevelandteam" to find the Cleveland Handmade Team's work. A wide variety of work from a group of very talented artists.
