Why Shop Local? To Support and Sustain our Community.

The Economy

Spend $100 at a local business and $68 of that stays in our community. Spend the same $100 at a chain, and our community only sees $43.

Local businesses create higher-paying jobs for our neighbors.
• Independent businesses obey the law and collect state sales tax, which is reinvested in communities and bolsters state budget deficits.

The Environment

Buying local means less packaging, less transportation, and a smaller carbon footprint.
• Shopping in a local business district means less infrastructure, less maintenance, and more money to beautify our community.

The People

Local retailers are your friends and neighbors—support them and they’ll support you.
• Local businesses donate to charities at more than twice the rate of national chains.
• More independents means more choice, more diversity, and a truly unique community.

Dalt Wonk: Spiritual Gifts

Wednesday, November 28th


A piano bar on lower Bourbon Street. The kind of place tourists peek into but then avoid. Brenda Saenz, an elderly woman, holds court at the piano. She is abundantly made up and carries herself with the hauteur of a White Russian exile. In brief chapters, we meet Brenda’s staff and customers. The cleaning lady – a once famous rhythm and blues star. The waitress – a rebellious runaway from the Northeast. A carriage driver, who tries to help promote the bar with tourists. But it is Brenda’s own secret tragedy that this group must deal with or flee from – in the final chapter that gives the book its name.

This book is available in paerback ($9.00).

Brandi Perry: Splintered

Sunday, January 6th


Keaton Fordyce was once a celebrated and prosperous writer, but the excesses accompanying his success came at a steep cost—the loss of his family and his career. Living in a dingy river-front room in Natchez, Mississippi, Fordyce is caught in a vicious cycle of alcoholism and despair.

As fate would have it, an old friend offers him an opportunity to help get his life and career back on track. He owns an old mansion in New Orleans that he can’t sell because of its reputation as being haunted. If Fordyce will live there for a month, alcohol free, and disprove the curse, he will get the help he needs to get him back on his feet.

Accepting the offer, Fordyce prepares to face his inner demons. Perhaps he should have prepared for much, much more…

This book is available in paperback ($15.00).
