Welcome to the St. Louis Shop Trail —a guide and passport highlighting locally owned shops in St. Louis, Missouri. This pocket-sized kit includes a letterpress map of St. Louis on the front and a passport on the back. To use the passport, visit one of the stores listed here and ask the shopkeeper to mark your passport with their business’ stamp or sticker. While you’re at it, learn a little more about who they are and what they do. What the heck, even buy something. Once your passport is complete, frame the map of St. Louis as a reminder of your favorite stops along the way.
