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.

Noje Collections and Spa
Enter Noje Collections and Spa's 7,000 square-foot facility, and your nose might be the first to notice. You'll likely be welcomed by a potpourri of fragrances: aromatherapy candles and organic massage oils, coconut soaps, and shea-butter creams. Inside two private massage suites, licensed therapists lather clients in organic Pure Fiji oils and ease tension with warm-stone massages. In the facial rooms, aestheticians use medleys of organic plant actives, drift nut oils, and customized masks, rejuvenating the skin.
And then there's the 2,000-square-foot boutique dedicated solely to self-care and a little bit of spoilery. The shelves are lined with organic oils, lotions, and skincare products from Red Flower and Germaine de Capucini. Clients can purchase silk robes from Sweden, aromatherapy candles, shampoos, and even starfruit-scented soaps to replace the Starburst-flavored soaps your dog keeps eating.
