gifts worth giving || shop small saturday

Saturday, November 26, 2016

It's officially Small Business Saturday and I am THRILLED to share many of my favorite small shops with you!!! As many of you know, I own my own business so supporting locally owned and operated shops are the best way to grow your local city's economy and make sure we prosper together... Shop Local, Eat Local, Spend Local, and Enjoy Local!

I've gathered up a handful of my go-to shops, both near and far, and encourage you to pay them a visit today [in person OR online] and support other small businesses as well. The girls, Jeff, and I are doing the same so cheers to shopping small this holiday season!

  1. Yes! I couldn't agree more. I am always looking for new small businesses (and Etsy shops). It is always amazing to encourage small, talented designers. Thanks for sharing <3
