Small Business Saturday

It’s Small Business Saturday! This means it is time to shop for the holidays from smaller businesses. I love small businesses, since they are companies where you can discover emerging designers. I also love them because many small businesses are owned by individuals or families; which is the heart of the American economy.

When you give a gift from a small business, not only are you helping out a small business owner, you are giving a gift that is not mass marketed. The person who received your gift will love having something unique and cutting edge. Doesn’t everyone want what others cannot get their hands on? Yes, yes, and yes!

So, without further adieu, here are a few fabulous small businesses to shop and support on Small Business Saturday.
