Many thanks to Ester at LocalShops1.com who featured us in her first in a series of blog posts for Sticks of Fire highlighting local businesses. The Sticks of Fire blog reports on news, events, and issues in the Tampa Bay area and is a big supporter of local businesses. Local businesses are the cornerstone of communities and are an important component in the revitalization of historic commercial areas. Whenever you make a purchase, more of your dollars remain within the local community if you chose to shop at an independent business than at a national chain. You'll also find more unique and interesting items at local shops and get friendly, personalized service. It's a win-win situation all around!Click here to see the blog post featuring Historic Shed.
