Local Leslie picks up a lantern at her favorite boutique and gives it a rub. Out pops a genie.
Shopping Genie: I shall grant you one wish.
Local Leslie: Oooooh! I wish I didn’t have to run to the Ferry Building for Cowgirl Creamery cheese, then to Sephora for my Juice Beauty cleanser, then to Sausalito for Heath Ceramics. Why can’t I get all of my favorite local products in one place?
SG (snapping): Poof! I give you The Marin Store, a new online boutique and quarterly catalog that celebrates Northern Cali artisanal producers of everything from home and beauty to food and fashion.
SG: Yes. And most ground shipping is free. There’s also a 24-hour customer service number in case you’re wary of ordering online.
LL: Just one more wish, pretty please? An unlimited budget.
