Shop Local Ideas: For the Love of Local in Ortonville

(Crystal A. Proxmire, Dec. 18, 2020)

Ortonville, MI- For the Love of Local is a cute little shop inside an adorable blue house with yellow trim in Downtown Ortonville. From the enclosed porch featuring locally-made, woodland-themed furniture, to two inside rooms of local products, there are many gift ideas to browse.

Among the unique treasures are ceramics and pottery, home and garden decor, jewelry, art, up-cycled items, beauty products and more. Items in For the Love of Local showcase the talent of Michigan artists.

For those in the holiday spirit, there are locally-made Christmas ornaments in several styles, including some that pay homage to the uniqueness of 2020. There’s also locally made hand sanitizer and cloth face masks in many styles for what will undoubtedly be the quintessential stocking stuffers of the year. Though of course the beautiful selection of artistic necklaces, bracelets, and earrings are also a nice idea. There is even a line that is beach-themed, plus several pieces featuring Michigan’s favorite “jewel,” the Petoskey stone.

Other wearable delights include knit shawls, scarves, mittens, legwarmers and caps. Walls can be equally well-adorned with art and vintage decorations. There are also baskets, bowls, and platters to add a decorative and practical touch.

This adorable Ortonville shop is located at 68 South Street. There are regular store hours, as well as personal shopping appointments available for those who need extra social distance. For the latest hours and more on their creative offerings, visit For the Love of Local on Facebook and on their website.
