My youngest daughter and I support Small Business Saturday every year, spending Saturday morning in a small, local town near us.
We start out with breakfast, then we go to A Good Book first thing, then make our way through the other shops.
Some years we hit gold, other years, it may only be a small item we have found. Either way, we support it.
I also support small fiber businesses. Every year I find something that I could use to create my own handmade gift with, be it yarn to knit a project or fiber to spin for the yarn to knit a project.
To get into the spirit of “shop small,” I have put a 20% off coupon code in the #spin15aday store for Saturday, November 24, 2018.
Enter: shopsmall2018 for 20% off items ordered.
Even if the #spin15aday shop has nothing you are needing at this moment, please take some time to look on the web or down your local street to see if there may be another small business shop that holds that perfect gift item.
I’m not dissing the big box stores, I’m just thinking we can do a better job of gift giving without them.
