In the spirit of the holidays, we thought it would be fun to give you 12 amazing reasons to shop on Spots On The FOX this Christmas. Go ahead and sing along (you know you want to) then read about these great features that provide joy for this season and beyond.
A single transaction on Spots On The FOX lets you purchase products from twelve (or even more) different local businesses at once. This saves you time and effort while you support multiple area vendors. Each vendor contacts you about the delivery, pick-up, or shipping options you specify.
Of course, there are more than eleven storefronts, but every vendor here truly is the “little guy.” Each is a small business trying to build a dream, offering local products and services by local people doing good for their (and your) community. Shop here and help them thrive.
By purchasing from this local-business support platform, you are keeping jobs and money here in our local economy. That strengthens our community and infrastructure while helping your neighbors continue to pursue their dreams.
One-of-a-kind, locally made products are at the heart of Spots On The FOX. From crocheted wearables and stuffies to soaps, accessories, and décor to furniture, art, and drinkware, Spots On The FOX lets you discover handmade products from local artisans and craftspeople eager to share their skills.
Just try looking through the scrumptious photos in the Food & Drink category and without drooling. From cookies, cakes, pies, and cocoa bombs to savory jerky, farm-fresh honey, hot sauces, and teas, Spots On The FOX is your one-stop shop for that foodie in your life.
Spots On The FOX already has partnered with several local organizations to get the word out and offer this amazing community service to a wider audience. To date, these partners include the Geneva Chamber of Commerce, the Plainfield Area Chamber of Commerce, the St. Charles Chamber of Commerce, the Downtown Neighborhood Association of Elgin, Women Entrepreneurs Secrets of Success (WESOS), Moms4Moms Vendor Events, and Good Morning Aurora.
The readers and writers in your life will thank you for shopping here. Explore a variety of journals both blank and guided for children and adults. Enjoy heartfelt children’s books, heart-pumping romance, scary and dramatic tales, self-help, poetry, humor-filled travel romps, and even beer guides!
Beyond offering products, Spots On The FOX and some vendors have professional services to share. Some of these services include editing and writing, graphic design, massages, and consultations on accounting, taxes, and QuickBooks. You also can support great charities and nonprofits or advertise your own business right here on the website.
Purchasing things manufactured elsewhere has a larger carbon footprint than buying locally. Shipping costs in terms of time, packaging, fuel, and pollution while locally owned businesses purchase and deliver right here and create less impact on the environment.
Spots On The FOX isn’t just keeping its local support online. In 2021, a partnership with Moms4Moms Vendor Events brought us Frost on the FOX, a successful showcase of local vendors (many with Spots On The FOX storefronts). Plus, a few vendors offer tickets for classes and events, and there are more events to come in 2022!
Shopping locally keeps money in our community. Buying from national chains sucks resources out of our area and grows businesses elsewhere. Statistics show that buying locally puts nearly double the money into the community compared to shopping at chain stores.
Overall, shopping locally is better and more personal. Local businesses are more flexible and more willing to adjust to customers’ needs than national chains. Being part of the community, they also can better cater to what you want, so let’s continue to support each other and grow together as one.
In the end, keeping it local is socially responsible and a win-win for everyone. Come check out Spots On The FOX and shop locally this Christmas. As local vendors, they will strive to get your goods before the big day.
