Small Business Saturday Sales and Gift Ideas
One of the best things we can do during the holidays is to shop locally and shop small. I don’t know about you, but I love discovering new small businesses on Instagram. Those targeted ads get me every time. I seriously once bought lobster earrings off an IG ad. Sorry, getting sidetracked. As I mentioned in my Black Friday post, this is the busiest shopping season of the entire year. And, these businesses need it. It’s been such a rough year. Today, I’m sharing some of my favorite small businesses for you to support on Small Business Saturday.
