There was an image meme floating around social media the other day… “when you buy from a small business an actual person does a little happy dance”.
I know I do.
Ok, #smallbusinesssaturday has come and gone. Why support a small business only one day each year? I can make a choice with every purchase that I make. Perhaps an item offered by one of these small shops strikes your fancy. Supporting a small business will make a long term investment not only in your life, but also their community.
Lysa Hoffman aka The Salty Widow / MakeRuckus Press. She’s the strongest, fiercest, kind, most determined, and amazing woman I know. She’s developed a line of pins and if you’d like to order one please DM her for details or stop by one of the following holiday markets. We’re working on a new website.
December 8, 4:30p to 9:30p, at the Music Hall Market in Tarrytown
December 9, 11a to 4p, at the Katonah Elementary School PTO’s annual Holiday Boutique
Tom Bihn. Tom and his amazing crew make my bags of choice. Currently I run around everywhere with my Side Kick. There’s a new pop tote that looks great with it’s zippered to[ if the open-ness of the swift made you wary (I’ve not tried it yet).
Adan of Akerworks has several brilliant new designs out. I’m still spinning away happily on my bobbins (choose yours here) and mini spindle (choose yours here). What’s new? There’s a yarn caddy/simple kate (or as a combo kit).
Elemental Fiberworks I really like what Mary is doing with colour. One day I hope to finish the beautiful braid of fiber I’ve been spindling for a very long time now. She’s now offering yarn and it’s probably good I can’t make a decision right now. I want to buy them all!
