For Elizabeth Todd of Alexandria’s The Shoe Hive, the pandemic seemed like the perfect opportunity to launch Boutique Boxes, a weekly delivery service that brings products from four local shops—The Shoe Hive, Bishop Boutique, Bellacara and a fourth rotating option—right to your door. “It’s a way for people to support our businesses all at once,” says Todd. “And, we get to deliver them to everyone, so it’s a fun way for people to stay connected with the community and get presents like candles, jewelry and skin cream that make them feel good.” // prices vary, email [email protected] for inquiries
