Always Think Big and Shop Small

Small Business Saturday came and went this year and it was quite a success for many small businesses around the country – a record high $17.8 billion to be exact.

That is wonderful news for all our friends who run small biz commerce, but this doesn’t have to be a one day event. Plus, many of us prefer to to avoid shopping right after a holiday. We can continue to support local makers, artisans and creatives by purchasing the meaningful gifts they sell rather than the mass produced drivel many people wrap up and dish off to their family and friends year after year.

If you’re still looking for unique gifts, here is a list of all the small biz shops I love and will continue to support this holiday season:
