There is no doubt that the retail landscape has changed considerably since the (almost) ten years that SoMe first opened. Everyone is busy and it seems online shopping is no longer a luxury as much as it is a norm. Yet, here we are! A small local business started from a simple dream about to celebrate a decade…
The dream that grew into SoMe was a vision rooted in creativity. I wanted a space where local artisans could gather together and showcase their work. A place where patrons could come to find quality one of a kind products crafted right in their hometown. As well as a place where I could cultivate and grow my own creativity as an artist and custom jeweler.
And through the changing landscapes of how we shop and how we live, the essence of that dream has remained intact. I have had the privilege of meeting and brandishing the talents of myriads of local artists, while simultaneously growing my own custom jewelry and repair business.
So if you are someone who is wondering what SoMe has to offer, and why you should consider shopping local, here is the list!
We offer a huge variety of artisan crafted goods. Our local artists put care, soul, vision, and tremendous creativity into everything they create. From ceramic artists to beading geniuses to exquisite knife carvers, you can find a gift for anyone on your list.
We have the means to get nearly anything custom created — from clothing, jewelry, pottery, paintings, and signage to wedding, baby and sympathy gifts.
That ring from Aunt Martha that has been laying in the bottom of your second drawer for 15 years because it’s “just not your style”? We can make it yours.
That awesome necklace your best friend from college got you for your 21st birthday that stopped it’s tour of your body when you ripped it off with your turtleneck that year turtlenecks were in? We can get it back on tour.
That one of a kind special gift you need to find for the friend who listened to you cry for 13 months over a guy named Roger? We have that. We promise.
And we also have YOU.
Yep, definitely the greatest side-bar that came out of fostering and following my dream was getting to know you. And your stories. Your laughter. Your families. Your likes. Your visions. Your lives.
So keep on stopping by. And we’ll keep creating. Custom lives together.
