Shop Local This Christmas

Who we are

We are Nat and Nic Alpi, small business owners and parents of 3 young children. When the second lockdown was announced we decided to put our skills to good use and create a directory and an online marketing campaign for all the small, independent businesses that make Bristol the amazing city it is. 


This Christmas we will not be shopping on Amazon and we sincerely hope that you will join us in our effort to support the creators and shop owners in these difficult times, and beyond.

Would you like to get involved?

We know that independent traders are facing their most challenging Christmas yet. We set this platform up to encourage shoppers to move away from lining billionaire’s pockets, or sustaining tech conglomerates who have little interest in an ecosystem beyond themselves. If you want to add your listing to the directory just pop your details in below. Together let’s encourage communities to Shop Here Not There this Christmas.

How much does it cost?

Nothing. We’re doing it to support you and other local traders that make Bristol the city we love so much through this crucial Christmas period. 

What do we need from you? 

Just fill in your details and we’ll send over the link you need to get the ball rolling.

You can also share the word with anyone who would like to be listed and anyone who could help.
