Online shopping has skyrocketed in the last decade and a half; about eight-in-ten Americans are now online shoppers: 79% have made an online purchase of any type, up from only 22% back in 2002. In the United States alone e-commerce sales are estimated to total $353.7 billion for 2017, and increase to $485.3 billion by 2021.

The day after Thanksgiving, or Black Friday as it is affectionately referred to by retailers, is nationally known as the day when the holiday shopping season kicks off, and when shops have super crazy good doorbuster deals. However, it can sometimes be hard to visit all of your favorite local stores across the Cape in one Black Friday, so this year, the Current Quarterly and Cape Cod Beer have

There has never been a better time for coffee addicts on Cape Cod. For those of us left unsatisfied by some of the chain caffeine purveyors, our java itch can now be scratched from Woods Hole to Provincetown at locally owned joe joints – some of which are also roasters! Most recently, the sandbar welcomed Three Fins Coffee Roasters, owned by Ron Reddick and Catherine Bieri.

Life after LYF

LYF post

Hi friends! A number of our community members have asked, so we thought we would clarify this in case others had not seen the original announcement earlier this year: LoveLiveLocal is no longer affiliated with Love Yoga Festival, which we founded and created with the current owner. We are not involved with any upcoming events but wish them well. We are super excited about our

We all need a little bit of fun and revelry to relieve some stress and connect with the Cape Cod community. Fortunately with October comes Halloween, which means costumes!  There are plenty of opportunities across the Cape to step out of your reality and dress up as whatever suits your fancy. First up, we’ve got the Pirates Ball, which was rescheduled to Friday, October 13 from

Eat well. Sleep hard. Be polite. This is the simple mantra behind Cook’s Organics, owned by Wellfleet resident Cookie Hebert. We’re thrilled to announce that Cookie – whose incredible magnesium cream helps us at LoveLiveLocal sleep hard – is also the second-ever recipient of one of LoveLiveLocal’s Project Cape Made award!

The Big {BAD} Box Store

It will probably come as no surprise that we weren’t super thrilled at the idea of an LL Bean opening up in Mashpee Commons, and were more than a little bummed to see a line out the door the day they opened. Why, you might ask? We couldn’t help but think of the small and local retailers that sell outdoor gear and apparel like Black Eel

In times of tragedy, it is hard to know where to begin to offer help and support. After the severe hurricane devastation in Puerto Rico, we didn’t have to look far to find an easy way to get involved and show some (local) love. LoveLiveLocal favorite and original supporter (he created our logo!), Vinnie Arnone of Cabo Cado has created a line of tee shirts that are both adorable
