I love it when local businesses and non-for profit start to think about carrying local products. The Tucson Botanical Gardens has joined the list of local businesses doing just that. The Tucson the Botanical Garden's gift shop buyer, Christine, knows that she has a loyal following of Tucson residents as well as tourists from out of town, who want to have a uniquely Tucson experience. She is now catering to both kinds of customers by bringing in Casa Kira's, locally handcrafted jewelry into the gift shop. Christina and I are both excited to watch the shift take place. Will keep you posted as to which pieces go into her shop.
