Sustainable living practices, including “buying local”, go far beyond being a member of a CSA or shopping at the farmers market downtown or making your own bread.  Sustainability also means supporting local shops and fair trade practices whenever possible.  In this manner, the money from your purchase goes much further than just powering your day with caffeine or buying a nice present for a friend.  Rather, that cash serves as a lifeline for small business owners that support the rich diversity that makes our world so enjoyable.  And money spent close to home stays close to home so your own neighborhood improves with each and every cent you spend. 

Come along with me for a photo tour of one of my favorite neighborhood coffee shops, InfusionsThen tell me what’s the best local joint in your town…

where the magic happens

Infusions Coffee and Tea
In Mt. Airy:
7133 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19119
In Bella Vista:
1001 S. 10th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19147

Port Wine and Pastries:  Yes, my dear readers, I am currently away from my desk/computer, hiking around the steep hills of Lisbon and rural sections of the northern Minho region of pint-sized Portugal.  I can’t wait to get back and tell you all about the rich old-world culture of this unique little country oft forgotten by European travelers intent on getting to Italy and Spain.  In the meantime, I hope you enjoyed this post and please have patience with my delay in responding to comments. 

Obrigada e adeus (thank you and farewell)!

    My husband and I had our wedding reception at InFusion! It was affordable and funky and fun. Did the bouquet toss on the back patio. 🙂

    Sarah – That’s SO cool! I was thinking about having my 30th birthday party there… eek, 3-0!!! If it has to happen, it might as well be in a cool place like Infusions. 🙂
