Quirky, Cool and Eco Friendly Products
A funky mix of old and new, vintage and edgy with an eco friendly twist. Nettie Fischer, Proprietor of Little Shoppes on High.

"Retirement did not feel right for Nettie Fischer, Proprietor of Little Shoppes on High.  After many years in the business world and teaching, she felt the desire to open her own fun shop that would become a destination.  She searched for similar minded people who wanted to create their own business in an innovative collaborative way.  Thus, Little Shoppes on High was born."

Glitz by Fritz offers jewelry and accessories made from recycled materials such as bubble wrap, bicycle inner tubes, vintage buttons, Fair Trade African Paper Beads from Outreach Uganda (www. and even those old school 51/4” floppy disks. Traditional handmade jewelry is also available in a variety of styles.  Artist Audrey Frizzell Lassiter (Fritz).

"Audrey Frizzell Lassiter (Fritz) is a retired teacher who studied jewelry making and soon realized what started as a hobby quickly took over the dining room and spread into the kitchen. Now she has combined her recycling obsession with her jewelry design to create “re” fined jewelry that combine sterling silver with materials destined for the landfill."

During my travels, I shopped in Boutiques that carried local artisan, unique and quality items.
