The Locals Love Book


In May we launched our very first ‘Locals Love’ book, and we are so excited about it! It’s a book designed to get people to try businesses that maybe they’ve never been to, or even heard about before.

It all started last year talking with different business owners every week. We would often hear about their struggles and we would get asked “what else can I do to get more people to know we are here?” I would tell my friends of the amazing places I was visiting, and most would say “never heard of them before.” 

One of the goals of our Instagram account was to shine a spot light on the local businesses we love. So we decided to put into print some of our favourite spots along with a special offer. 


Every business in the book set their own offer and own T&Cs. When discussing all this I would say to each owner “make sure it’s an offer that you aren’t breaking even on, or losing money. Make sure there is still profit in it for you. I want you to be happy every time you have an offer being used.” So every deal is designed to save a bit of money for the customer, and potentially get a new client for the business. Win win!

Like most projects, this one took a lot longer to pull together than originally thought. I did most of the photography myself, and did almost all of the writing. I learned so much, and genuinely loved the process. 


Inside the book you’ll find a write up on each business, 6 photos, a ‘Did you know’ section, and an offer. We are hoping that you will learn a bit about each business and be inspired to spend money locally.
