About Us

Welcome to my online shop, The Roxbury Local.               

First, let me introduce myself. My name is Lael Gibbs and I live in Roxbury, Connecticut. This online shop has been an idea of mine since I moved to Roxbury in 2013; and I am thrilled to bring it to life and to share it with you.  One of my favorite things about Litchfield County is its locally produced goods and services.  There is such care and quality put into everything made here.

My husband and I have spent the last several years using our spring, summer, and fall weekends to attend every local fair, famers’ market, and festival that we can find. We look so forward to stocking up on our favorite products and to stumbling onto new businesses. Now that we have a daughter, it has become one of our favorite family weekend traditions.

These events are the inspiration for this online shop. I want to make finding Litchfield County products easy and fun; and create a Litchfield County experience for anyone who doesn’t live here fulltime or for anyone who might be dreaming of those events when we are all snowed in up here in northwestern Connecticut.

If you ever have questions about any of our products or vendors, please feel free to email me at theroxburylocal@gmail.com.

Thank you for being a part of this with me,
