I’m not sure how many people are aware in the UK that December 6th 2014 is Small Business Saturday. This trend started in the USA and is a way of promoting small businesses on the run up to christmas. Many of us aim to find the cheapest places to buy our gifts at this time of year as money is understandably tight, however these discounts are normally provided by massive corporations who have immense buying power. Independent retailers and small businesses cannot dream of competing on price, but they can offer a much more personal service & you can be safe in the knowledge that you are directly supporting the economy.
Also small businesses like ours really rely on your custom and we do everything we can to make your shopping experience & our hand made goods as personal as possible.
So on Small Business Saturday why not help a small business such as your local shop or farmers market, craft faire or independent online retailer and make a purchase. Even if you buy one of your gifts this year from an independent retailer it will help us all continue to exist & stop your high street looking like a carbon copy of every other high street.
We would love it if you bought some of our Hand Made badges. We are a small family run business & our company is only 2 people strong. We care about each and every order and we value each and every one of our wonderful customers. Some of you guys have only just found us while others have been coming back to us for years.
