I just wanted to remind you that this upcoming Saturday is Shop Small Business Saturday. It’s a day when you can support small businesses, their dreams, and their families.
When you support small businesses like mine, business owners do a happy dance each time they get an order. You are supporting my dreams of having my own greeting card and stationery business. I have grown to love doing almost every aspect of my business (not filing for taxes of course but someone has to do it).
Yes, sometimes shopping small is a bit more expensive but the person running the business is making the product, having the product produced, packaging the product, photographing the product, writing blog posts and emails, posting to social media, handling customer service, and so much more all by themselves with occasional support from family and friends.
Today is a day to honor those that have taken the leap of faith to start a business that they are passionate about. I have been writing blog posts for the last couple of weeks sharing my favorite small business owners’ products in hopes to spread the word about some of these small businesses that create beautiful products that are unique and hard to find in many stores.
Please share this with post to your family and friends to spread the word about #shopsmall.
Also, I will be at West Elm this Saturday for a pop-up selling my greeting cards and stationery. I hope you can come by so I can meet you. If you can’t make it, I am having a sale this weekend in my shop. Sign up for to be apart of my tribe for more information and details for Saturday.
