Men need style too!

Indie Industries just opened up their second San Francisco location and it's all about the men, bringing locally designed fashion to all those style conscious boys of the mission district!

We are always excited to hear about new venues and boutiques that connect local artists and their community.  Especially during this economic hardship, we really need to see a growing support of all things local.  But really above all, we need to see a growing awareness in the power of our consumption.  Where we spend our money has more influence then people seem to realize, so wake up and start spending local!  When you spend your money in local stores, on average it has 3 times the monetary impact on the community when compared to a national chain store.  Not only that but local stores provide more competition, innovation and diversity.  Ok. Ok.  We will step down from our soapbox but for those intrigued, we have linked some additional reading material below...

Now that we have you all pumped to shop local, come show Indie Industries some support at their Launch Party this Saturday.  Check out the store and ladies who fear they won't have anything to fuss over, no need to fret, there will be tons of locally designed accessories!
