Loved & Local Adds A Storefront Location In Hastings Sunrise

11 May

This past February, we featured Jenn Franzen’s pandemic pivot from the travel industry to an online store, Loved and Local. The evolution continues as Jenn moves Loved & Local to a small storefront in Hastings Sunrise within the Hastings Ticket Centre located at 2463 East Hastings Street. Coincidently, it’s right next to one of our favourite brunch spots, the Roundel Cafe.

If you aren’t familiar with Loved & Local, it is an online store that features gently used clothing and accessories for women, men and children.  Loved & Local also carries items from local artisans including Oona Clothing, Mosaic Earrings, beeswax food wraps by Etta & Olive and candles by Grain & Honey. Jenn is regularly adding new pieces by artisans including artwork by Calvin Sketches and dog beds, standing desks and wine/beer crates by Greenwood Box Co.

Loved & Local carries a wide range of items and yes they deliver!  They offer free delivery on orders over $20 within a 10 km radius of Loved & Local which is located in Hastings Sunrise. If you are interested in trying on a specific item, feel free to reach out to them directly.  

We invite you to visit Loved & Local online or in store to check out some of their 1,200 items! Shopping in person is available Monday to Thursday from 11:00 am to 4:30 pm. Deliveries are made Monday to Thursday from 9:00 am to 11:0 am. The online store is, of course, open for shopping 24/7. Stop by and support this local shop that is working hard to support other small businesses.

Pandemic Pivot: Loved & Local New Online Shop

1 Feb

2020 was a year of challenge and change for many and 2021 continues on that same vein.   The pandemic has many people pivoting to earn an income from a new source. Today we’d like to introduce you to Jenn Franzen who did a complete 360 and created Loved & Local.  Jenn was a self-employment travel agent for 15 years. As we all know, with the current travel restrictions, planning trips isn’t first and foremost on people’s mind nor will it be for some time. So Jenn pivoted and created Loved & Local.

Loved & Local is an online store that features gently used clothing and accessories for women, men and children.  Loved & Local also carries items from local artisans including Oona Clothing,  Mosaic Earrings, beeswax food wraps by Etta & Olive, candles by Grain & Honey and knitted toques by Littlee Lambs Boutique to name a few.

Loved & Local carries a wide range of items and yes they deliver!  They offer free delivery on orders over $20 within a 10 km radius of Loved & Local which is located in Hastings Sunrise. If you are interested in trying on a specific item, feel free to reach out to them directly.   They have also just added a weekly auction on Facebook and Instagram that runs from Thursday to Sunday with a starting bid of $1.00. For those wishing to give back to charity in an easy way, Loved & Local supports some local charitable endeavours including Victory House Mental Health Facility. They are currently selling Valentine’s Day cards made by residents. 100% of the sale proceeds go back to Victory House.

We invite you to visit Loved & Local online and give them a follow on Instagram where they post many of their newly acquired items.  As always, support local when and where you can.
