Great Local Brand: Zipped

This little pouch is my favorite acquisition of quarantine. The brand is Zipped and it was created by two local moms.

Tucked away under the main building at Christ Church on the Post Road is Christ Church Books and Gifts. I stumbled upon it one day, and to say that it was more than I expected is an understatement.
