Editor’s Note: In celebration of Small Business Saturday (Nov. 24th), today we’re sharing with you a glimpse of the shops in our hometown (Kidron, Ohio). Enjoy!
I love needing to travel only a short distance to have a good time. Spending time and money at local shops in my area is great because it’s quick, fun, personable, and the people there know my name!

It also feels great to know that I’m contributing to the growth and maintenance of their stores and helping to keep them going.
