Shop Small, Shop Local

We are Madison, WI.

Here in this little town I live in, Madison, Wisconsin, we have some wonderful little shops.  It is a mission of mine in creating this blog to make these shops known to as many people as I can. Supporting these stores supports us all.  It gives us a place we love, and are proud to call home.

In creating Not Your Plain Sarah Jane, I have reached out to many of these store owners.  Let me tell you, they are all wonderful, bright, caring people.  They all have a dream and they all have put their life, soul and spirit into these special boutiques. Making a purchase at one of these stores gives them life.  Basically, after you make a purchase, as you walk out the door, they are doing a little happy dance inside. Here are some of my favorite local shops:
