For most of us, 2020 has been a whirlwind, disaster, and horror!! It’s lasted forever and affected in ways that indescribable!! With a little less than 6 weeks left, I am positive that it has a few more swings left! Luckily, we have each other and the magic trifecta of Black Friday, Shop Small Saturday, and Cyber Monday are basically all one day and last for at least a week!! Before your eyes start crossing, don’t worry… I am going to help you out and make it easy!
Yesterday on my Facebook, I asked for people to share their shops, their favorite shops, or just share their business. It’s been a really rough year for everyone. As a small business owner, I can tell you the struggle, stress, and shambles the year created, these businesses have managed to survive 2020 and all of them with grace and humor.
I have certainly done my share of ‘rona shopping and will be doing more, not to mention with most of us not traveling to visit or see family, I’ll be shipping!! So shop early, shop hard, and shop small!!
