If you're not mainstream, I guess you're an offshoot. If not usual, unusual. If not ordinary, extraordinary. And if not regular, well, that's another topic.
This month's issue is about the uncommon. People who own and operate businesses that provide products or services that are a bit rare in our region. Or, they're for very specific purposes and audiences.
We collected a bunch of them; culled it down to 24 separate businesses (even though some of the examples are provided by other businesses, too). We could have presented some product/services that are so weird, they are off the scale. But we insisted on two rules: the business must be a legitimate, viable operation; and it must be local.
We hope you enjoy the read and appreciate the diversity of ideas in our Virginia's Blue Ridge Region. It's not always regular around here.
