Shop Local Roc


A-Listers are a busy bunch, so this year, A-List has compiled the ultimate holiday guide to help you Roc the Holiday this season!


A-List Rochester along with two incredible blogs Flower City Fashionista, and BESL { Barbara Ellen Shops Local } are bringing you access to Rochester’s best #ShopLocal spots + events, gifts + ideas. Why??  Because the holidays are about giving + getting. And that’s exactly what shopping local does for you + for our community.


What to Expect

Editorial will virtually walk you through the doors of local shops to highlight local gift ideas, boutiques, local artisans, and local spas to help you look your best for all the holiday parties you’ve been invited to, as well as highlight the most recommended spa gift options and post-holiday de-stressing options.


Rochester A-List 2014 Gift Guide

We will highlight 5 local gifts each week {on Wednesdays} from area boutiques, spas and shops.  Surprise your friends and family with presents we handpicked just for them from some of Rochester’s best local merchants – from gifts for the foodie, the fashionista, and the little ones in your life to gifts for that person who has everything for those who know Rochester is a great place to shop.

The Shop Local Rochester campaign is a collaborative effort of local bloggers, merchants, media and locals.  In the words of the Flower City Fashionista “We want you to love shopping local as much as we do.  We want you to look good and feel good.  We want you to #Roc the Holiday and make a profound impact in your community with the power of your dollar.”


In the words of Barbara Ellen Shops Local, make it count:
