As a parent of little ones, my attention to my immediate community and our neighbors has grown. I’ve found that supporting local businesses is one of the best ways to invest in our town and make personal connections with other families. Even more so, I’m always inspired by the passion, creativity and entrepreneurial spirit of small business owners. This is exactly how I felt after discovering some of the local businesses – 13 in total – that reside in my new town of Highland Park, Illinois.
If you know me, you know I take my shopping seriously so I was thrilled to collaborate with Downtown Highland Park to visit 13 Highland Park businesses for the first time and share my review of each store in a guest blog post series that is now live:
If you live in Chicago or the North Shore area, you will not be disappointed if you shop downtown Highland Park for Small Business Saturday (11/25) and throughout the holiday season. Here’s just a preview of some of my favorite new shops in town, but you can get all my shopping recommendations and gift ideas here.
For those of you in the Chicago area, I hope you find my review helpful in finding special gifts for everyone on your list!
