SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY!

Happy Small Business Saturday! What a great idea! Read more about it… {http://smallbusinesssaturday.com/}

A few ideas on how to Shop for Small Business Saturday.

1. Gift Certificates – Most local shops & restaurants offer gift certificates which make it easier for that someone special to get exactly what they wished for! I was talking to my aunt the other day and she had the idea of getting a gift certificate for carpet cleaning, I think that is a fabulous idea!! Something that you might put off with your own money but would love to have done.

Check out Violet Love Brands, Inc. – they offer gift certificates that you can redeem online if you can’t find a location near you to buy everything from headbands to loungewear to evening wear and all in rebecca michael’s signature soft fabrics.

2. A Clean House – Why not hire your favorite cleaning crew for your mother, auntie, sister, friend… ! I don’t know about you, but when things are busy, which they usually get even more so during the Holiday season, it is a wonderful feeling to have a clean, fresh house.

3. Photo Shoot – How bout paying for a photoshoot for your favorite family! Everyone loves family pics and if you are like us don’t get them done often enough!

Check out these fine photographers for the NE Missouri area {www.laceimage.com and www.jten21.com} & the Austin, TX area {www.vagabondstyle.com}

4. Handmade – Make something! And even if you aren’t the crafty type, something purchased that is handmade just makes it that much more special.

Check out Red Rooster Trading Company for some hand.built, beautiful & functional gifts. {www.redroostertradingcompany.com} Use coupon code SMALLBIZSAT for 10% off all products!

There’s also A Girl Thing – Teresa and her girls repurpose vintage goods & clothing into fashionable pieces of clothing, jewelry & accessories.

I would love to hear what your gift ideas are and how you will shop Small Business Saturday!!
