The LocalShops1 Shop features the work of dozens of local artists, makers, and crafters, and helps us grow our Live Local mission!
The shop opened in August 2016 as a pop-up shop, and a year later morphed into a full-fledged space to better spotlight the local businesses that make Tampa Bay such an awesome place. The shop is an extension of our organization, LocalShops1, which launched in 2008 and is recognized as Tampa Bay's leading advocate for local businesses.
In addition to the shop, LocalShops1 publishes a monthly e-newsletter (sent to 20,000 e-subscribers!) and the quarterly Live Local! Buzz, in print and digitally. We also organize monthly networking socials, and put on signature events including Top Local Chef, St Pete Tiny Home Festival and Shopapalooza Festival. Hope to see you in our shop, and all over town!
