Shopping Small This Christmas

Nov 22, 2017

Happy (early) Thanksgiving, friends! I know turkey day is tomorrow, but I wanted to share some of my favorite small shops, just in case you'll be working on that Christmas list this weekend. ;)

I've always had a soft spot for artists and small business because I know a lot of time, passion and purpose goes into everything they do & create. 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! ;)

So grab some coffee (or hot cocoa) and start browsing! Plus I'm sure many will be having sales since small business Saturday is also coming up! ;)
