Buy less. But buy local. Keep it all here.
Good message, Adelita. Thanks. Buying local within Albuq but also within New Mexico is the most important thing we can do to help each other grow. It means not falling for national ads that make foreign made or U.S. made goods outside of NM somehow look more appealing. There are so many things that New Mexicans excel at: art, wine, beer, honey, farm produce, but also local restaurants and other home grown retailers such as furniture stores, even if they buy from beyond our borders. When in the Peralta-Los Lunas area, two great restaurants are Sopa's and Henrietta's, both strictly local, but they are not the only ones by any means.
Buy Local is a hard thing for me, cuz I kinda hate shopping. I love doing online research, though, and cybershopping falls right in my wheelhouse. I admit that most of my shopping these days is done online. Cyber Monday is a big day for me. That being said, I do spend most of my restaurant dollars locally, which is easy to do in this town, especially if you love New Mexican cuisine... I have, however, found a local jewelry maker who has become an annual holiday shopping tradition - Adelita Jewelry. You may have the privilege of knowing her personally, or just online here at DCF, but creations are awesome.
...but HER creations...
Aaawwww! Thanks Ron!!
