Shopping At Its Best!

The Country Register began as a way to promote independent country shops back in the days when "country" was all about a certain "look." Well, "country" is still a very in "look" with just a new twist and and today's country look is called many different names. New publications have been put out promoting "country" in various ways. If you can't choose one certain look you can always do a nice blend of various styles. All you need to do to find out what the current trend is would be to go to one of the quaint gift and decor shops. The shops will help you find out whats in and what's out. Some will be more about Primitives, others about today's Country style, while others will take off on the Vintage look. Many antique and collectible stores have become a mixture of all of the above, adding another choice to the mix.

Our goal is to connect you to all of the unique speciality shops and find the perfect style of decor and gifts that appeal to you. Supporting your local business people has always been the right thing to do and when you travel it is a delight to meet shop owners and discover the unusual.

Shops can come in many sizes, shapes, and forms. They might be grouped together, free standing or out on a country road. Big cities to tiny towns love their specialty shops. The photos here are just a glimpse of a Main Street, just about anywhere, shop. Variations of this scene are played out across the USA and Canada. Very often you will find these shops advertised in your local Country Register and you can pick up your free copy at each advertising shop every other month. Pick up an extra copy for a friend and go like us on Facebook. Help us spread the word about shopping at its best.
