Localvore: apparently this means a person dedicated to eating food grown and produced locally – but why not a person dedicated to all things local? Our town has atmosphere, artists and attitude.

And so do these garbs. Check out this off-shoulder top by isa maisa ~ subtly sexy and hand stitched at the front. The distressed Linn Street vintage brass locket made by your very own Shopgirls adds a bit of shine to this flowy number. For those chilly July nights (inorite? #onlyiniowa), a cheery infinity scarf like this one from Night Owl Bliss will always add color & flair.

Speaking of fab, you’ve heard of {made}, right? This community collective of artists uses renewable and re-purposed materials in their simple, stunning jewelry – always giving back 9% of their profits to local charities.

Nearly next door to Revival's brick-and-mortar location are our sarcastic brethren at Raygun: making the Midwest shine one proud city pun at a time. Proceeds from Iowa City's 'Anything Goes' tee go directly back to the Iowa City Downtown District.
