Sara Silvio Jewelry. Handcrafted from metal, glass, stone, + wire – local artisan Sara Silvio infuses every piece of custom jewelry with the same tender, love, + care our moms give to us. That’s why, I say, give mom Sara Silvio Handcrafted Jewelry!

Take it from me. Two years ago, I attended my first trunk show at Peppermint to the joy of meeting Sara Silvio + her jewelry.

I knew they’d make my mom feel special.

WHY: Why is this notable?? My mom truly + honestly doesn’t love jewelry. She’s just not that kind of lady. Yet I still felt compelled to purchase a pair of drop stone earrings, handcrafted by Sara Silvio, because I knew they were special. SSJ emanates it.

Momsly’s favorite gift that year?? Sara Silvio earrings. What does Momsly still wear almost every single day, 2 years later?? Sara Silvio earrings.

MYTHS – Not your typical shopping. Why don’t we #ShopLocal more?? We already know that it’s:

  • affordable
  • unique
  • convenient
  • sustainable
  • fun

Because it’s not a part of our daily habits! Tiny myths we’ve learned along the way have become huge barriers that keep #ShopLocal from our daily routines. This season, BESL dispels these 5 mighty myths:

  1. no parking!
  2. too expensive!
  3. not a 1-stop-shop!
  4. out of the way!
  5. weird hours!

GIFTS – Not your typical gifting. Gift giving–great gift giving–shouldn’t have to be a mystery. The secret?

  • what
  • where

Knowing what makes a gift great + knowing where to find that gift are 2 very different things. They often contradict! { Many of the greatest gifts, are the rarest. } All season long, #shoplocalroc guides you to more satisfying gifts.

Just look at all these resources!

FAVS – Not your typical favs. Hidden gems. When shopping, we seek-out hidden gems more than a healthy cookie recipe we’re not ashamed to swap. { Or keep secret. } #ShopLocal is chocked-full of hidden gems! The best part? They’re:

  • directly in our neighborhoods and backyards
  • at familiar spots
  • even in our homes!

This season, here are BESL’s top picks:

  1. Festivals + Bazaars – 3 Weekends of Handcrafted, Fair Trade, Locally Owned Businesses
  2. Thrift – Let the Preparations Begin!
  3. Arts + Reads – Stay Classy
  4. Food + Drink – Hoppy Holidays: Get Cultured
  5. Secret Spots – Stealthy + Strategic

Shopping is inevitable this holiday season.
Make it fun + make it count with Shop Local Rochester.
