Online shopping is easy-breezy fun. Add-to-cart, click to buy, get it delivered to your front door in just a few days. It’s like magic. What’s not to like?
A lot, apparently. Even with the simplicity of online ordering, we still enjoy the experience of going to a store, and seeing the products up close and personal. (A laptop monitor can be a bit tricky with colors, and it might be hard to tell if those earrings match your eyes or not. At a store, you can easily pick one up, and hold it close to your face in front of a mirror just to make sure.) Being able to look, touch, and interact with items can make a huge difference in a shopping experience, especially with handmade items.
I’m excited to let you know that those of you in the Eastern Washington area now have a place you can see some of my goodies up-close.
Inspired Creations just opened up shop last week. They have a plethora of talented artisans and crafters, who have provided lots of great items for your browsing pleasure. The store is located at 523 S. Pines, over in the Spokane Valley. You can visit them from the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Alisha is super friendly and would be happy to show you around. Little consignment shops like hers are providing a great opportunity for local artisans to sell to those who may still not be comfortable with buying online yet. We all can’t manage to supply our own brick and mortar store, after all.
Even if you aren’t in the local area, you can still show your support for Inspired Creations by liking their Facebook page and sharing the love. ♥ Happy shopping everyone!
