Top 5 places to shop local in Mason City, Iowa

Yesterday, a few of the North Iowa Bloggers decided to spend the morning shopping local in Mason City, Iowa. Mason City is what I would say is the central “hub” of North Iowa. It’s the town the has all the big box stores, but when we went shopping, we wanted to make it a point to only shop local as there are so many stores with such great things! We were sure to find something for everyone in our families.

Here are the stores that we stopped at and are a must during the holiday season.

  1. Soyphisticated Candles

    Our first stop of the morning was at Soyphisticated Candles. To tell you the truth, I have lived next to Mason City my whole life and I never knew about this place! Sophisticated Candles is located on East State Street, right next to East Park. They have everything from candles to soaps, to sprays and oils.All of these products are made in Mason City with natural and renewable soy and essential oils. What I love about soy candles is that they burn cleanly, with very little to no black, sooty buildup.

Naturebox Subscription Review

Just last week, I got my 2nd and 3rd naturebox subscription. I’m not sure what happened but I had 2 boxes sent to me. Normally, Naturebox will send you a box of 5 bags that are full of different snacks that you have placed into your online “pantry” for just $19.95/month + free shipping. They have snacks for any type of person out there. There are vegan, soy-free, milk-free, gluten-free, non-GMO, as well as nut free.

Since I’ve got a total of 3 boxes, I’m thinking this will be my last one as I wasn’t in love with it and the price is kind of high. Since I am saving up for my wedding, I am cutting back on a lot of things and sadly, this will be one of them. This month, there were quite a few items that I wanted a lot more of so since there were so many,  let’s start with those items.

Whole Wheat Raspberry Figgy Bars
