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.
• Designed locally and printed to order at Reverie Apparel's shop in Springfield, IL.
• Reverie Apparel's graphic tees are printed to order. Please allow 3-5 business days for delivery.
• 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.
