the vein center, the
pain in my legs was
inexplicable… I had
been to many vein
doctors but all said that
I needed a surgery…

I had fun scouting and shopping

What’s your favorite boutique, pet shop or yoga studio? I’ll bet
you’ve named a business in your neighborhood that is owned by a
local individual—not a national corporation.
What makes going in there so special? Is it the exceptional
service, the unique products and atmosphere—or does the owner
know you by name? Now more than ever (given our shaky economy
and the cookie-cutter chains that seem ever more ubiquitous), it
is important to shop and buy locally. Our local stores are the
backbone of our communities because money spent locally is
reinvested in the towns, ensuring that our main streets continue
to have the charming character we love.
The importance of shopping locally is a major cause of ours here

Check out our feature “Shop Local”
page 37), where we’ve listed the top indie shops in 17 categories.
Perhaps you’ll think we missed one—be sure to e-mail us and let
us know, and maybe your choice will make it into the next guide.)
Once you’ve scoured the “Shop Local” section, don’t discount
the rest of this issue. It is packed with great articles, like our fea-
ture on alfresco dining (page 32), in which New Jersey caterer
extraordinaire Laurence Craig invites us to his farm for a garden-
fresh party. There you’ll find lots of decorating ideas and, best of
all, exclusive recipes so you can host your own soiree.
