In nutshell, I’m sick of chain restaurants and stores. As a small business owner, and a mom, I think it’s important to support the independent shops & restaurants that are passionate about what they create and sell.
November’s Small Business Saturday’s popularity has increased dramatically over the years. But, really, can’t we support these businesses more than once a year. We seem surprised when the “little shop on the corner” goes out of business. But as my brother-in-law likes to ask “when was the last time you shopped there?”
So, I decided to challenge myself to a year of shopping small. Wondering if I can truly find everything I need for my family, without breaking the bank, and finding some amazing gems along the way. “Follow” our journey!
