Shop Local Rolesville had a very successful event on Saturday, May 16, 2015. Sixteen local businesses participated in our 2nd quarter event.

Melanie Diehl, local business woman and one of the event organizers, shopped all day and shares her adventure.

“My first stop was the Rolesville Farmers Market. Even though the market wasn’t an official participant, it doesn’t get much more local than this. I met local farmers and business owners who offered samples and business cards. One of my favorite purchases at the market: snickerdoodle cookies from Michele Bobe of Scrumdelicious.

“I tried to visit every business who participated in the event and take pictures of my purchases. I really enjoyed visiting with the business owners, and look forward to shopping with them again in the future. It was a truly enjoyable experience, and I encourage everyone to support our local business community!”

Ace Hardware of Rolesville had a sale on plants. I got basil, thyme & parsley for my garden!

The chef salad from Anzio’s Pizza is always made fresh, and I love it!

Vanessa Davis of Dirty Dogs Spa sells
locally made candles–a shop local
double dip for me!
At Flower Creations, I hand picked some
fresh flowers to create my own arrangement
at home! Thanks, Jenny Kelton!

Heritage Market had a sale on NC cheeses and wine, so I stocked up!

I got a hot dog for my husband and a cold root beer for me at Jim’s Old Tyme Hot Dogs.

The great folks at Macon Garden Center helped me pick some flowers for my front porch flower pots.
That place is bigger than I thought!

My husband loves apple pie, and when I got this amazing creation at MB’s Tasty Pastries, I got a free Lumpy’s Ice Cream (locally made in Wake Forest) from the Heritage Market. Triple-dip local shopping!

While at MB’s and the Heritage Market, I found a local produce stand. Couldn’t pass the opportunity to get some good things for supper tonight!

Deborah at Pope’s Dry Cleaners was
happy to help me in getting my drapes
dry cleaned. 
Jumpin’ Jojo’s offer is a free popcorn with
the purchase of an entry. I got my snack
when I purchased a gift card for my godson.

Flying Froyo wasn’t open yet, but I did stop by and snap a picture of their storefront.
They have amazing froyo and sorbet.
