Wander Louisville is an upcoming guidebook for our wonderful city of Louisville. One of the writers and developers is Owen Graham, who happens to be a friend of mine. Owen asked me to show him some of the best places to shop around town. On Monday we spent the day browsing a few of my favorite local stores and boutiques including Clodhoppers, Lotsa Pasta, Scout, Dot Fox, The Nitty Gritty, and Just Creations. We also visited a few places I had never been: Guestroom Records, Revelry, Craft Gallery, Alchemy, Gifthorse, and Block Party. It was so great to chat with business owners and learn the back stories of the places I've enjoyed for years and discovering new places to enjoy as well. I love that Louisville has such a diverse and thriving local business scene filled with small business owners who are passionate about what they do. I'm excited that Owen and his team are creating a guidebook that will do our city justice and I'm very proud to be a part of it!
