Why I Shop Small Business and You Should Consider It Too

Hi Everyone,  today I am sharing with you, some of my favorite small businesses and why I like to shop small business  

This time of the year can be a bit busy, as well as a stressful time of year for many of us for different reasons.

Though Black Friday and Cyber Monday can both be great shopping days,  but what about Small Business Saturday?

On Small Business Saturday, some really great products and gifts can be found.  Also, did you know that shopping and supporting Small Businesses can also be good for local economies and even communities?  Plus many Small Businesses are also charitable and give back too!

Supporting Small Business, can add to economic growth and often local employment.  These small businesses are often local Artist, Artesians, Jewelers, Bakers, Craftsman, Marketing, Boutiques, Donut Shops, Coffee Roasters and more!

It is also a great way to find unique gifts, handcrafted Candles, Beauty, Skincare, Art, Furniture, Clothes, Gifts, Foods, Cheeses, Coffees and things that you may not find elsewhere and it is also a reason I like to shop them all year-round!
