We love discovering wonderful independent shops. Every year readers and followers nominate their favorite shops for The Shopkeepers Best Shops list. We discover so many lovely stores via your best shop nominations but unfortunately they cannot all be included on the final list. So we have decided to share a selection of our favorites each week from your best shop nominations.
This week we’re sharing two favorite textile and needlecraft shops, two shops in the pretty Upstate NY town of Beacon, and two shops in historic York.
If you’re wondering what makes a best shop we put together this post to share our process a little more, so click on link to read more.
