Help Support Shop Small Today

Did you know that today, November 24th marks the third annual Small Business Saturday? I know, I can hardly believe it myself. It seems it was just yesterday when I stumbled upon American Express Facebook page reading their first announcement of what Small Business Saturday was all about.

The idea of such an influential company taking the time to create a day to support local businesses around the country was certainly news that grabbed my attention, not only because I am an AMEX customer but also because I am a local business owner. Knowing that there is one day of the year dedicated to helping those with local businesses really does help all of us who are trying to make a living for our families.

Which brings me to today's post. If you are still in need of finding a few holiday gifts, a haircut, even a new pair of shoes....why not help your local community by buying the items you need from a small biz! Not only will you be helping your community but you will also be helping local business owners support their families.

So, in honor of today, Small Business Saturday, here are two easy ways to shop that will not only support the SBS movement but it will also help you save time (and money!) shopping for your loved ones this Holiday season.

For the Divas, Princesses, Makeup Mavens and Fashionistas on your list:

When shopping at our online boutique, please register (it's free and we DO NOT solicit via email) so we can send you an additional gift and samples as a Thank You for supporting our business!

Entering code MARK20 will give you a 20% discount on every order - no minimum amount required!

For the Pet Lovers in your families and friends (I love this one!):

Kritter Kondo Deluxe
$164.99 + Shipping

The Kritter Kondo Deluxe is an outdoor pet enclosure ideal for indoor cats and small dogs. The Kritter Kondo Deluxe collapses flat with the simple release of a few pins; no assembly required. A shade canopy is built in to offer a shady side and a sunny side for your pet to enjoy. The Kondo comes with it’s own carrying case which has a shoulder strap and handles for easy mobility and storage. The interior of the carrying case has three pockets and a zipper pouch for toys, food, blanket and bed.

I hope by sharing these two Shop Small suggestions that you have been able to find a few more gifts to give your family, friends and pets this Holiday season. If you are interested in supporting other small businesses that are in your local area, please visit shopsmall for more information.
