Small businesses have the always been near and dear to my heart. Through firsthand experiences volunteering for multiple small businesses throughout the years – and most recently for a shop here in Seattle – I got to see just how much every sale made an impact to the livelihood of the business. There’s a big impact to the local community whenever small businesses in the surrounding areas thrive; the community thrives, too, and it is so lovely to see!
While Black Friday sales this year from large retailers felt lackluster (nothing short on quantity of sales, but the quality of items for sale felt like they fell flat), Small Business Saturday supporters felt like they were out in full force, regardless of sales being touted.
Whether or not you’re doing holiday shopping for yourself, family, loved ones, etc, keep small businesses in mind! A little support can go a long way, especially during this time of year. Links and sale codes below!
