Supporting locally owned businesses means supporting the local economy. And often you meet some wonderful "locals" in the process.
This happened recently when we visited 3 Fish Studios in San Francisco. We were greeted warmly by one of the artists, Eric Rewitzer. We had three kids with us- my nearly 11 year old son, my 7 1/2 year old daughter, and my 3 year old niece. They were as welcomed as the adults. Eric gave us a chance to view the art and answered our questions about his process. And then he did the coolest thing... he let each of the kids "pull a print."
Basically, that means he showed them how to ink his linoleum carvings
