Off The Interstate

We are so bombarded by gross consumerism that it’s sometimes difficult for people to take independent businesses with lower advertising budgets seriously but today as we drove through Auburn, MA I happily noticed some local business that are just as valid as the U-hauls, Walmarts, Pier 1 Imports and Best Buys that we can’t escape:

– ‘Olde Lamp Shop’ – Where it’s not just the shop that’s old but all the lamps too!

– ‘Safety Smart Gear’ – Specializing in reflective vests.

– ‘$5 Per Item’ – Junk sale with a 16 foot long flag that says OPEN!
