small shops I adore

When you shop small you are helping an actual person, you are creating a community and making someone smile. Take it from me, whenever I make a sale I smile so much I start to dance. Small shops support their families, they grocery shop, they’re able to make their child’s birthday so happy with the profits they make. So this year consider helping a small shop. If you can’t make a purchase because hey it’s 2020 support by liking, sharing, saving and commenting on their posts. A little goes a long way especially during these hard times. This is not only a small list of some of my favorite little shops and ways to donate this season but some of these creatives I’ve grown to love. Happy holidays to all of you!
