Lincoln Like a Local

Passion and creativity run deep within the community of Lincoln, Nebraska. Whether it’s a small business run out of the basement of a home or a successful boutique downtown, there isn’t a shortage of unique places to shop. Though there is a lot of individuality in this town, there is a common denominator that brings the people of Lincoln together—their love and desire to support the local artisans and business owners of their town. The people of Lincoln believe in being intentional about the way they spend their money and the options are limitless.

The greatest thing about local Lincoln businesses is that there is something for everyone; from college kids on a budget to working adults and everything in between. Whether you’re looking for a unique card to send to a loved one or the perfect outfit for a night on the town, you’re sure to find it here.

Of the many successful and fast-growing boutiques in town, Stella Collective (a collaboration of Stella Clothing, Loft & Craft, and Hunter Gatherer) located downtown has been a favorite amongst the trendy Lincolnites for years, offering an array of stylish pieces for your closet and your home. The owners behind Stella Collective are in tune with what the modern day woman wants and they provide it flawlessly.

For those who love a vintage flair, Home and Closet is the place to go. With weekly updated inventory of vintage clothing and furniture, this store has quickly become a local favorite. The perfect mid-century furniture resides here and makes its way into many local homes.

After opening its doors in the fall of 2014, Paper Kite has become the most charming boutique in town. Located in the ever-growing College View, this boutique embodies everything lovely and sweet. There is truly something for everyone whether it’s a locally made cutting board in the shape of Nebraska or the softest baby blanket for a new bundle of joy. Not only will you hear friendly chatter between the customer and the owner (as if you were watching a scene from You’ve Got Mail), you’ll see many locally made pieces from artisans who don’t have a storefront.

Lincoln is a place where the small business has a voice; it’s a place where the consumer spends with intentionality and knows the face behind the business. The small business community continues to grow and make Lincoln a desired place to shop.
