About Close to Home
Launched in 2016, the Close to Home shop offers a special hometown shopping experience in-store and online. The assortment features a variety of carefully curated and themed products from local designers and artisans. Some of the unique items include apparel, natural candles, handcrafted accessories, jewelry, wall art, one-of-a-kind artwork, gifts and more.
