In these challenging economic times it is even more important to support your local small businesses. Whilst the high street giants can generally weather the storm, for a small business your purchase could mean the difference between survival & going bust.
Every hand made item has been made with love, care, & thought – rather than run off the assembly line.
For small businesses it’s not even all about profit: it’s about making a customer happy, giving them a unique & special gift for their child, uncle, aunt etc, knowing that they will appreciate the work that has gone into making it. Yes, hand made items are often a bit more expensive but they are SO worth it. Their uniqueness alone makes them so.
And then of course, there’s the stark reality for small business owners of needing to pay bills & feed families – just like everyone else does.
So, please, when you’re looking around for that special Christmas gift for Auntie Flo, take a look at all the wonderful products out there from small independent businesses like mine, and choose something really special for her.
