Shop Local this Victoria Valentine’s Day

When Valentine’s Day rolls around it can be tempting to just grab some chocolates or jewellery from the nearest big name department store. But there are benefits to shopping locally — it strengthens Victoria’s economy while keeping our communities healthy and happy. Here’s a list of some of our favourite ~*~romantic~*~ local offerings.
