At Feel Good Shop Local, we try not to miss anything with the words ‘sip’ and ‘shop’ involved. Which is why we counted ourselves very lucky to be involved with this year’s Mother’s Day Sip and Shop event, created by Tasteful Events at the Springfield Museums. The beautiful Lyman and Merrie Wood Museum of Springfield History served as a unique and artful venue to enjoy delicious drinks and snacks from Springfield’s new restaurant, ‘Jackalope’, and shop the many small businesses and creators curated by Tasteful Events.
This sip and shop was extra special because there really was something for everyone- especially if you were shopping for Mom. Luxurious scarves, body balms, jewelry, handmade leather goods, finely crafted cutting boards by our very own Hannonmade, custom shoes, and of course my personal favorite table- chocolate.
BOHO chocolate is Western Massachusetts’ very own artisanal small-batch bean-to-bar chocolate company. A new member of the Feel Good Shop Local family, they caught our attention with their bold flavors and most of all, their milk chocolate potato chip bar. The. Best. Chocolate bar. If you haven’t had one yet, it’s time to add to cart. You’ll enjoy every bite knowing that this chocolate is made locally and organically with sustainable practices. And it’s delicious.
Thank you to every single kind soul that managed to break away from the amazing vendors at this event to visit our Feel Good Shop Local display. Sharing in the excitement of shopping locally is our favorite pastime, and we value each and every moment of shared enthusiasm and ideas. We continue our mission of making it easy and efficient to shop local first. Stay tuned as we continue to grow!
