Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
You're IT Saltana Cave!
Three questions with Anna Pogoda, owner of Ridgefield's Saltana Cave.
Why did you start your business?
My daughter is asthmatic. About eight years ago, we visited Poland and experienced several sessions in a simulated salt cave. After experiencing 10 consecutive sessions, I noticed that her asthma symptoms decreased. This inspired me to do more research and, ultimately, open Saltana Cave. The salt in the simulated cave generates negative ions, molecules that are believed to have positive effects on our mood, stress level, and overall energy.
What is your best selling product/service?
Sound Bath Event. It is an evening of immersion into Sound, Relaxation, Rejuvenation, and Peace. Within Himalayan Salt Cave, I play Native American Drum, Crystal Singing Bowls, Koshi Chimes creating an environment to let go of that which no longer serves all of us, and assist in the opening to new ways and possibilities! Collectively, we embrace Unconditional Love, Harmony, and Peace in our Hearts.

How many local businesses do you use to support your business (products and services) and can you name them?
I love recommending various local businesses to my customers who often travel a long distance to experience and explore the town of Ridgefield. These places include Ridgefield Playhouse, Prospector Theater, Garden of Ideas, Aldrich Museum, and various local restaurants and deli's where they can have a bite to eat.
