The Square Collective

 
With a combination of retail stores, restaurants and entertainment venues, the Independence Square keeps getting better and better.

The Idea

Welcome to the Square Collective. I wanted to create a space where our customer could shop and feel confident in the gifting choices we have made. I often find as I go onto different sites to find the perfect unique gift idea I am overwhelmed and then make no decision. Every month I will create a new selection to choose from that represents each of our brick and mortar stores here on the Independence Square.

Brick & Mortar

If your’e in our neighborhood, stop in and experience the stores. It’s a different era than I grew up with for shopping. I love the feeling of tracking through a beautifully merchandised store and the discovery of things I didn’t know I needed. But, I also am grateful for the time savings that I encounter from ordering online. This is my happy blending of my two shopping selves! Let life’s adventures lead you to the banquet table where champagne is served.
