Though today happens to be the day we dedicate to showing our appreciation for small businesses, showing our support for them can happen any day. As we inch closer to the holidays, it’s important to consider shopping locally first. The pandemic has impacted everyone in one way or another. Our local restaurants and smaller shops have taken some of the hardest hits during this time. If you’re considering buying Barack Obama’s latest memoir, have you considered an independent bookshop near your house? One of my favorite neighborhood shops, [Rare Device,] is always my go-to spot for any type of greeting card, candles, and this year, ornaments.
I have no problem boasting about Rare Device because they have an online shop too! However, I know that there are so many other businesses that could use more exposure and attention. Even though we’re coming to a close on Small Business Saturday, I’ll continue posting my favorites to Instagram as time goes on and I hope you’ll consider your favorites as you begin holiday shopping.
