Shop Small This Christmas

I know Thanksgiving is in 2 days, but I wanted to show some love to my favorite small shops because small business Saturday is also coming up! (the Saturday after Thanksgiving) Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?

I know we're all gonna go to the mall and the big box stores, but let's not forget the little guys this Holiday season.... or all year long for that matter! ;) Even if you buy just one or two gifts from an independent artist or shop this season, you're making a big impact... we are supporting creative talent, local communities and that money is also going into a family bank account... and not to that super rich CEO! What I also LOVE about a lot of small businesses, they giveback by donating a portion of sales to great causes! Something I plan on doing next year! (just one of several changes that are coming to my little biz!)

This is just a small list of amazing shops:
