That is why it makes us so sad to watch fellow boutiques close down due to the economy. Another boutique turned us onto a project called the 3/50 project that we thought might be of interest to all of our supporters and friends.
Just go to www.the350project.net and read all about it!
It talks about the benefits of local independent retailers and what they bring back to the community in the amount of dollars. I think it could go even further and talk about what they bring to the community in terms of customer service, creativity and originality.
The 3/50 projects invites all of you to pick 3 of your favorite boutiques (The Willows being one of them!) and spending $50 there a month.
"If half the employed population spent $50 each month in locally owned independent businesses, it would generate more than $42,6 billion in revenue.*"
We invite you to buy your next gift at a local independent retail store instead of the big chains - you are protecting local jobs, keeping dollars in the community, and enriching what makes this community so great - the originality and creativity of local artists and vendors.
We look forward to helping you with your next purchase! Thank you to all of our friends for your loyal support for the past 11 years. You are each what let us continue to grow and share a little bit of The Willows with you, your friends, and your homes.

See what The Inspired Room made of her vintage doors -
Doors can even be hung on the wall as art work as The Nesting Place did with her doors!
Here is the set we just picked up in California - what could you do with these? $465 for the pair!
The glass could be taken and out and mirrors put in possibly for a closet? Maybe they would look stunning with a coat of black paint? Oh the possibilities!

We are so excited about a line we picked up from a local artist who creates darling inital and story necklaces with fun bubble charms. She adds some beading and a simple chain to create versatile and unique pieces meant for all occasions! They truly are conversation pieces!
The next line simply sparkles. Many of you might remember that we used to carry this line at Hilton Village...that's right, Emily Austin is back!!!! We expect it to arrive by the end of summer!
