Buying Nearby

I’ve been making the most of my weekend mini travels in Michigan, most recently hunting down the tack and products I need to get back into the horseback riding game. And while I’ve glanced at the online shops, it’s just the most fun experience to visit the locally owned tack shops in quaint towns. And it completely fits with one of my favorite clients, Michigan Retailers Association’s Buy Nearby campaign. It’s fun when my day job intersects with my blog and I can promote something I care about–like supporting regional/local shops.

I’ve spent the last three weekends touring any and all tack shops to better understand what we have here in Michigan when it comes to riding gear, tack, feed and supplies. There’s really nothing I love more than a little road trip and shopping and most recently, my mom and I made a trip to Sparta and Grand Rapids.
