They wanted to create something bigger than themselves, an event for many local retailers. From this desire, the Boutique Crawl in Hamburg was born. This Friday, May 21st, enjoy a day in the village as you support your retail community. They can't wait to see you! “It’s always great to see everyone come out for The Boutique Crawl! Laughter, conversation, hustle and bustle enliven the village with a great sense of community,” says Lynn from Lodgical Country Store.
For creator Rachel, it was important to create something the community would be excited to show up for and participate in. Shopping small is SO important, more than just during the holidays (especially through this pandemic). The experience you get shopping locally can’t be rivaled, and the sponsorship you choose helps support your local businesses throughout this event. "Let’s keep a thriving community!"
Rachel started the Boutique Crawl in 2018 with just an inspiring idea. “This event means so much from me. It was something I created in 2018 with no clue how it would turn out; I poured months of work into pulling the very first one together,” she said. “This event was not only needed for the retailers but the community craved it, as well. I trusted in that idea so much that I fronted every cost for the initial event because I believed in it. I’m so grateful for its success and for all the local shops that took a leap with me by being involved from the very beginning!”
