PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- Jaime's Show the Love Virtual Cash Mob has partnered with Local First Arizona to identify locally owned businesses in Arizona that can use some help in the pandemic.
This week, Show the Love features Phoenix-area spots that showcase local artists. Check out today's featured local spots below!
Woods & Whites
Woods & Whites is a collective of creatives in an artisan marketplace. The pieces are carefully curated to bring you the warm, inviting feel that you would want in your home.
The comfortable, old world furniture has been restored and revived for another 100 years. Featured artists create pieces that are specifically made for Woods & Whites. You'll find the works of artists from Arizona and around the globe -- Fair Trade Designers offer hand woven textiles from Tunisia, wool weavers from Mongolia and cobblers from India.
Most artists are discovered locally and many also offer custom services and designs.

Straw and Wool
Straw and Wool is a new classic hat store in downtown Phoenix. The owners, Henry, Dominic and Ali each have businesses of their own, Henry runs a T-shirt company, Dominic a jewelry business, and Ali a bookstore, but their decision to collaborate on this vision was born out of their common love for style and commitment to community.
They were surprised to find that there were only a few hat stores in such a large city with so many transplants. After opening, they expected to see a lot of the hat collectors and connoisseurs coming through their doors but they’ve been pleasantly surprised by the support from Phoenix natives and locals that have never worn classic hats before. Phoenix has a great culture of supporting local businesses and their experience is a testament to that.
They’ve had to expand to the suite next door to make room for more inventory. When you see people around town switching out their baseball caps for classic hats, there’s a good chance they got it from Straw and Wool.
