Today, according to American Express, is Small Business Saturday where the consumer, who have ravage the Big Box Stories, should turn their attention to the small businesses in their area. Small businesses are important to the health of a country. It is those small businesses that, some times, turn into big businesses and bring in revenue and taxes to an area.
I have a small business and am part of another. My small business is practically microscopic right now but I am working on expanding it a bit. I make puppets and dolls. They are one of a kind wonders that I am quite proud of. Peter is a business since he incorporated himself and I am part of that business as well.
I have a lot of friends who run small businesses of all sorts. Some are copy editors and indexers. Others create really nifty stuff that is either practical or pleasing to look at. Esty is full people who do really cute crafts and those practical things that look good.
So I encourage you to shop a small business today. Either online or in person. I encourage the owners of small businesses to put your links in the comments so that others can look at your work and maybe you will make a sale or two.
Personally, I think I am going to be putting up photos later of what I have to sell and see if I can’t generate some income for the holidays as well.
I am grateful for small businesses and those who work so hard to make them succeed.
