Shannon's Web
Finalist, Best New Business

2454 Central Ave., St. Petersburg,

Shannon Kelly opened her candles and gift shop right before Christmas 2013, while still a college student. "I worked for many startups and small companies and thought, 'Why not do this for myself?' " she says. "I had a lot of ideas and I wanted to apply them without hearing 'no.' "

Here are excerpts from her application for LocalShops1's 2014 Best in Biz Awards:

"It’s beyond scary to dish out advertising money, set up for festivals and markets, pay employees, stock-up on merchandise, etc. to not see an immediate pay-off. However, I can see many seeds that I’ve planted begin to sprout — business connections, vendor relationships, and of course new and returning customers. I love St. Pete, and I’m feeling like I’m finally part of the community. I feel this is my biggest success."
"Shannon’s Web strives to work with local artisans and domestic suppliers. We want to be part of the community, not just contained within our own walls. We offer affordable, yet unique gifts and indulgences for him and her and believe in giving back while paying it forward."
