So, as you’ve figured out if you read any of this blog, I’m considered a “local” small business owner. My other half and I (with our daughter) are running the candy business. He and I also own another local small business (CC Fine Furniture). So every year at this time, I start to encourage folks to shop local for their holiday gifts.
I’m proud to say that last year I did buy a few holiday gifts from local handmade vendors at Knott’s Berry Farm’s Christmas Crafts Village and other events. This year I’d like to take that further. I am going to try to buy all of my holiday gifts from local businesses/ makers. I have to admit, this is harder for me than it should be. I love to shop online. I tend to search for the best deal and frequent those big chain stores more than I should .
So I’m going to post about my experience shopping local. I’ll be posting about some great places/ events to do your local shopping at as well. And I’m going to be featuring any vendor/ local shop that I buy from in future blog posts.
I’d love to hear from you if you’d like to join me on this adventure and I’ll try to feature your experiences too.
