These are a Few of My Favorite Things...
We like to support small business when and where we can. By doing so, money spent locally contributes to the local economy and helps create jobs. Additionally these small mom & pop shops are a great place to discover locally made products. For those trying to avoid crowds this time of year, you'll enjoy a faster, more personal shopping experience.
With so many positive reasons to shop locally, we are sharing some of our favorite Small Businesses right here on the South Shore.

Our 23 acre farm has always focused on the Labrador Retriever. We have been raising Labs for more than 30 years. During

can to help ensure that our dogs are as healthy as they can possibly be. As a result, we opened our Health Food Store for Pets
back in 2011 and have grown tremendously since then.
