Springfield is special for so many reasons. For our vibrant history and arts culture, for our small-town living with big-city amenities, but most of all, Springfield is special because of the diverse and brilliant people who call the capital city home.
This giving season, we're celebrating the small businesses who call Springfield their home and who have established their headquarters at Innovate Springfield, in the heart of our community. Because when you purchase from a local business, you're supporting the local economy in a meaningful way.

Reverie Apparel, locally designed, locally printed, and garments so soft it will feel like a hug from your Grandma. What better way to show off your Midwestern pride than with a t-shirt featuring Abraham Lincoln, a corndog, an ear of corn, and the date Illinois became a state. Or any other of Reverie's unique and beguiling designs!
• Our printing process is called DTG (or Direct to Garment) printing. The ink is water-based, eco-safe, dries rapidly, and will soak into your garment to become part of the shirt. Meaning, your Reverie Apparel will wear and feel like a "traditional" tee and not like a vinyl cut or iron on.

When we buy local, our money stays in the local economy. Studies have shown that local businesses recirculate a greater share of every dollar as they create locally owned supply chains and invest in their employees. Data shows that local businesses return 52 percent of their revenue back into the local economy, compared to just 14 percent for national chain retailers.
To put it another way, the money we spend locally will generate three and a half times more wealth for the local economy compared to chain-owned businesses.
Think about all of the businesses/events you've been to. Whether it’s a business you've popped into while on vacation, a tribute band concert, a friend's business you hang out at, or the coffee shop you find yourself at on your hardest days…
Generally, you bring a piece of that business or event home with you. Why? We create and attach ourselves to our best memories. To someone out there, your business houses their best memories, and they'd love to carry that feeling of belonging with them, and their show support by wearing your merchandise.

Hello! I'm Laura, the face behind the lens and lead photographer. Capturing delightful chaos, romantic love, and joyous tears, I freeze the large events, but also the moments in-between.
In 2003, I joined the United States Navy as a Photographer’s Mate in search of adventure and the desire to tell a story through photographs. While being trained in old-school film and photojournalism, I fell for the greatest story yet—capturing love.
That was fifteen years, college, and countless weddings ago. A dream that stared with the desire to capture a story, is now a business called Cherrybrook Photography. Always learning, striving for more while appreciating the small, and always smiling—I’m thrilled to be part of a story. I hope to hear about yours!
