As the seasons change, we all want to update the look and feel of our homes. Home and garden decor items are some of the most fun finds when you’re shopping local!
Here are a few locally-owned businesses that can help you with your home:
Santa Fe Trading Company – You have probably driven past this amazing shop as you’ve headed down 7th Street in Victorville. Housed in historic buildings in the Old Town area (undergoing a small business-led revival! Check them out on Facebook!) owner Steve Blech has family roots in the area starting in the earliest part of the 20th century. His grandfather owned the building his store is in when it was a popular gas station on Route 66. You won’t believe your eyes as you explore room after room of unusual and beautiful home decor, gifts, garden decor and more. Spanish colonial, Native American, Moroccan, Indian, Central American, and Southwestern styles all come together to offer you the perfect must-have item for your home. They also offer layaway and gifts and items at all price points.
Desert Solar – Living in the desert, we all know that air conditioning is a way of life. Rising energy prices compound the challenges facing homeowners and renters. Have you considered adding solar energy to your home to take advantage of one thing we have plenty of? SUN! The team over at Desert Solar specializes in helping homeowners and other property owners find a plan that works for them, and walking them through each step of the process. They stay up to date on the current governmental regulations and tax breaks, as well as industry standards. And since we know it is a financial investment, they can also help you figure out your financing.
Carpet Club – Nothing changes the feel of a home faster than flooring! Whether you prefer carpet, tile, hardwood, laminate or vinyl, you can find the options that are perfect for you and your family at Carpet Club. Family owned and operated, they have brought together a team with decades of experience, as well as interior design services to make sure you achieve just the look you want. They are also an official HGTV flooring provider and offer all the latest looks from Shaw, Mohawk and other popular lines. Don’t waste your time and money at the big boxes talking to the guy who covers plumbing, lumber and carpet. Go to the people who can do it RIGHT the FIRST time!
Scentsy with Amy Reyes – Scent is a powerful tool to create a feeling in your home. As the weather (ever-so-slightly) cools down, use warm and cozy scents to transform the feeling of your home. No time to bake cookies? No problem! Amy has delicious fragrances with spicy and sweet flavors. Scentsy also offers a variety of warmers, from full-sized ones to small plugins to match nearly any decor. And there are tons of other products for personal care, for on-the-go living, and more. (And don’t forget Grace Adele purses and jewelry, and Velata dipping chocolates!) Contact Amy today for a catalog, or to set up a party.
Remember, when you shift your spending to a locally-owned business like our RelyLocal members, you keep money circulating in the High Desert THREE TIMES LONGER! You will be shocked by how much money we could keep in our community if we all shifted as little as $20 a month from a national chain to a locally owned business. See how many millions of dollars we could reinvest here at home with our free shift calculator. (Here’s a hint – the population of the Victor Valley is about 415,000!)
