As entrepreneurs recover from the financial impact of the coronavirus, it’s now more important than ever for consumers to spend locally. That’s why I’m dedicating my summer selections to area creatives and Palm Beach County shops. One of my favorites is North Palm Beach’s Curate, which lives up to its name with a fabulous selection of American-made attire. Down in Delray Beach, The Monogram Closet offers an array of personalizable home goods. Another store that will customize anything for you is Initial Styles. Swing by this Jupiter boutique for initial-adorned essentials and gifts. When it comes to trendy finds, I love shopping the Etsy pages of local artisans. Tassel Soul, for example, specializes in au courant accessories, while Haass and Hers crafts adorable bows for little ones. By supporting these makers and retailers, we’re not only helping them weather this storm, but ensuring they have a fighting chance in the long run, too.
