06 Apr the SERIOUSly good Local First gift card
Want to hear something rad? Local First Springfield, the non-for-profit which supports and promotes local independent businesses such as Serious Lip Balm, just released its very own gift card. That’s right and guess who was one of the first to sign up, SLB of course! AND not only did LFS (short for Local First Springfield) launch a gift card, it gave away $1,500-worth of them! SO GENEROUS.
So, what does this all mean? Well, if you were one of the lucky winners, we think you should spend your winnings with us because DUH. The LFS winners received $25 digital gift cards to be spent in its entirety at one of the member businesses or split it with some of our friends, like Café Moxo, Three Twigs Bakery and Sangamon Reclaimed, for example. Cafe Moxo has sandwiches that will tickle your fancy, Three Twigs Bakery has some AMAZING baked goods and Sangamon Reclaimed has some beautifully crafted woodworking pieces and furniture that will have you DROOLING.
Want to know what you can grab from us for just $25? How about our brand new limited edition Better Together Box… it’s an adorable little gift box that contains an almond marshmallow Serious Lotion Bar, a Serious Lip Scrub and a Serious Hand Stuff for your intensely dry hands and cuticles? We’ve also got whipped lotion, beard balms, dog paw balms… you name it, and as always everything is all-natural and handmade. They are perfect for a ‘pandemic’ self-pamper or you could purchase a gift for a healthcare worker, first responder, or supermarket shelf-stacker!
As for the Local First Springfield gift cards, here’s how it works. The gift cards are digital and available on your phone. All you have to do is visit the LFS website and go *here to purchase a gift card. You can also find all participating merchants.
