Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.

As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

HexLab Makerspace

HexLab Makerspace started as a rapid prototyping firm that used high-tech gadgets to help companies realize their vision for new products. However, it wasn't long before HexLab noticed an increasing public demand for their services and technologies—especially 3D printing, 3D scanning, and laser cutting. This sparked the decision to convert the workspace into a full-blown laboratory and throw open the doors to creative-minded people who want to try their hand at making things.

In addition to advanced tools, the lab now offers guidance on using such machinery in hands-on classes. Students learn how to sculpt or create 3D models, work with metal, and create unique objects as gifts or works of art. Visitors at the space pursue all sorts of projects, including creating miniature replicas of themselves to mail to loved ones.
