Buy Better: Miles from Mainland


Made on MVY

If it’s local, it’s  just better — no shipping, no cardboard, no trucks rumbling up to your house. And you get to help sustain Island craftspeople and stores. Show your love for the Vineyard with a handmade wood item from the Miles from Mainland line. Designs include ornaments with a cutout of the Vineyard, tissue boxes, trinket boxes, and pencil boxes similarly decorated. Find them at Rainy Day in VH.
