Shop Small: We Create Eureka Springs!

Eureka Springs is a wonder.

This is entirely so because of the thousands upon thousands of human beings that have made their mark here. Since the 1800s, Eureka Springs has captivated human beings from all walks of life and this unique place is the embodiment of human beings co-creating what it is. With each new entrepreneurial idea, the art of co-creation takes flight.

We all create Eureka Springs!

As I write this, it's the day before Thanksgiving 2020, and if you haven't been downtown yet, it is now adorned with thousands of lights this year. Eureka Springs merchants and shopkeepers have taken time to collectively light up the streets of charming downtown and our historic loop of homes and businesses.

Holiday Season is certainly upon us here in Eureka Springs and with it, there is shopping and shipping to do.

As this blog - - continues to make it's mark amidst the co-creative spirit that is Eureka Springs, I would like to take this opportunity to encourage this thought and ask everyone to consider this same practice over the coming weeks.

Let's all please make our Winter Holiday purchases of gifts and goodies ONLY from our small local businesses here in Eureka Springs as we offer up local support for our own community.

This year has been truly unprecedented and it's has had an unfavorable impact on many lives around the world. As we all continue to forge ahead, the livelihoods of our local shops and shopkeepers depend on sales. Some shops have chosen to remain closed completely, some offer curbside services, some have downsized and some have shuttered for good.

With every ending, there is beginning, and it's encouraging to see that with some of the shops here choosing to end operation (for one reason or another) new shops may now be seen on the scene. Check this out!
