I am a huge fan of small businesses. I have owned several of my own (including this one, and THANK YOU! all for supporting me in this venture) and I have always been so thankful for the support of others in my adventures. Today is Small Business Saturday, which means that we will be doing our traditional shopping on town at our favorite local shops, but since many of you are not local to me… I thought I would share some of the fabulous small businesses that She Saved readers have shared with me!
When you support a small business you do so much more then create a transaction … you support that hopes and dreams of that person, family, etc. I am fascinated with commerce on all levels, but even more so at it’s very core. It all starts with the artisan and I get so excited to see people sharing their creations!
Take a peek at their work below, just click on the images to go right to their online shops. I am NOT in any way affiliated with any of these artists, nor was I compensated. I just love to share wonderful and beautiful gift ideas, enjoy:
