Have you ever wondered what these purple books are all about? Here at Mimi’s we sell “The Guide to Being Local” because we think it’s a GREAT resource!
The first half of the book is full of coupons for places that Ithacans love – like Greenstar, Rasa Spa, Ithaca Bakery, and of course Mimi’s Attic. The second half is full of photos and stories about our unique local businesses. The book is perfect for the Ithaca native who does their shopping here anyway, or for newcomers just starting to explore our wonderful town.
All the businesses featured in the book are local and independently owned- meaning that you are supporting people you know, and keeping money in our community. The guide offers coupons to help you save thousands of dollars – and for only $15 this book pays for itself! Keep it somewhere handy so that you can grab a coupon every time you head out to shop. If you buy your copy at Mimi’s, you can use the $5 coupon in your next transaction!
The guide is produced by Local First Ithaca. Check out the website to learn more about their efforts to create a successful local economy.
