About The Local

you can sit with us.

The Perfect Unexpected Pairing.
1 Part Grit. 1 Part Grace. 1 Part Servant’s Heart.

Branding Agency. Gift Boutique. Catering Company. Event Venue. Kristie Christensen. Misti Goodson. Making Herstory.

In any normal world, those would be 4 different things. Not here.
Not at The Local. They all live together in perfect 4-part harmony.

What started as 2…well, let’s make it 4…separate collaborative businesses turned into a grit-meets-grace, marketing-centered, shared table, servant-hearted Southern Lifestyle gathering place for likeminded women seeking to dress for success both personally and professionally.

The only shop of its kind, The Local is a one-stop creative spot in Downtown Canton, TX where you can shop for one-of-a-kind personalized gifts, you can host a variety of girly events, you can attend one of our many over-the-top shindigs, and you can build your brand with our in-house branding agency – CEO MARKETING GROUP.

Partners in creativity, Kristie Christensen and Misti Goodson joined forces on this new venture in 2024 after a few successful shindigs of their own where they paired sipping, shopping, sharing tables and collaborating to create a unique gathering place for amazing women. Not only do they host amazing events and sell upscale customizable gifts, they help women in business in their fab consortium called CEO SOCIETY.
