Sponsor Spot Light: Shop Small Saturday!

It’s no secret I’m a fan of small businesses… after all, I AM one!  And I’m so pleased that all of my sponsors here on Decor & More are small businesses, too.

Did you know small businesses provide 55% of all jobs and 66% of NEW jobs since 1970 (sba.gov)??   They have a direct impact on the economic health of our communities and I feel we all have a responsibility to support them.

Now, don’t get me wrong… I love a good sale, and it’s hard to beat the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals offered by big businesses out there.  But shouldn’t we consider spending just a portion of our holiday budget with a small business or two? Maybe it’s your locally owned gift shop or dinner at the neighborhood bistro.  It all matters.  Even the smallest purchase.

In honor of Shop Small Saturday, I’m extending my thanks to my sponsors!

Like Green Acres Outdoor Living… I’ll be making a field trip to their location soon and can’t wait to see all manner of cozy firepits and adirondack chairs!

And North London Heating and Plumbing… don’t you know they’re busy right now!

And my very own ReMade Home Designs… it’s all decked out and ready for Christmas if you’re local and looking for unique decor and gifts!

Confession:  most of my major holiday purchases have been made, but I will be filling in the gaps in my list with small business purchases.  For me that’s part of the fun of holiday shopping!

Okay, so spill it — what’s your favorite small business in your area??  Are you planning to shop small this year?

Happy Shopping!
