As a small business owner, I fully understand the impact of shopping small and having the support of your local community and the community that can be built online.
My favorite holiday guide is below along with sales/promos these businesses may be offering during Small Business Saturday.
If you have not already attended a local maker/vendor market in your community, I encourage you to look up a schedule of events happening this Holiday Season. Attending as a vendor is always the highlight of owning a small business. It is a way to connect with customers face to face & discover other amazing artisans in the community.
The Homestead Haven – Offering 30% off on Small Business Saturday. Specializing in curated & meaningful home decor items. A portion of all proceeds is donated to a charitable cause each quarter. The gift that keeps on giving. Shop the Together is our favorite place to be, as pictured, and other favorited items.
Elle Woods Co. – Beautiful reclaimed home decor which can also be customized. Each piece is unique and skillfully curated with so much passion and an eye for design. Shop her shirts & sweatshirt sale going on now.
Pierce & Hide – Leather earrings & statement jewelry. Small Biz Saturday – Buy 2 get 1 Free. This mom boss is a total inspiration! Not only does she strive to offer affordable & beautiful jewels, she has used her shop to help others in need by offering special sales and then donates to charitable causes. This B2G1 sale is a great way to shop for others & treat yourself at the same time!
Greenhouse Picker Sisters – Specialty events and styling. One visit to their warehouse for a Galentine’s event with Restored for Moms, I knew they were my kind of people. Their selection of decor that you can choose from your event is un-believable! Prepare to be in awe of their stunning creations. If you’re in need of an event planner, they are your gals.
Honor & Grace – Beautiful special collection handcrafted bows for girls (mamas too). Two mom bosses who are spreading so much goodness with their curated goods & positive messages found in their posts.
Porch Dog Pots – Locally made (NC) ceramics. They are SO beautiful! Having recently spent time with Caitlin for a special anniversary date night with my husband, I can attest to the craft involved in curating these beautiful pieces. She went above and beyond to make our workshop special. Find her at local holiday markets here in NC.
