    It’s hard to pick just one. MaryJane is at the top of the list for sure! There’s also a wonderful antique store in my hometown called Casa Chic. Not only do they sell antiques, but they rent space to others to sell their goods. It’s a great place to spend an afternoon! And I LOVE to hear stories of women farmers (especially dairy farmers).

    Secret Sisters Boutique, a consignment shop in Ely, Minnesota. The owners were fantastic and strongly promoted the town and provided a wonderful environment for women to shop.

    My favorite is a local place called People Loving People. “It is a second hand store which functions as a means of earning money to support the main focus of the business, which is to provide food to needy persons in the community. More than that, though, furthering goals are to have a community garden and teach classes to help people become more self-sufficient in food production.

    My own business is my favorite. This business fell in my lap one day as a time of change was approaching in my life. I have complained and kicked and screamed about wanting out but in fact I know this business is teaching me so much more about myself that I could never have known without giving it a whirl. So I would say, Annie Mae’s Boutique is my favorite, for such as time as this!
