TAKE THE PLEDGE

The Buy Local pledge states, “I pledge to vote with my dollars and purchase as much as I can from local businesses. I will maximize sustainability and community investment. I will minimize environmental impact through my buying.”  Guests can sign and date a business card-sized pledge and keep it in their wallet as a reminder to shop local.  Pledge cards will be available at both Sarasota Architectural Salvage stores this summer! #takethepledge
