Black Friday is back but this year we are celebrating ‘Indie Friday’! Instead of throwing mass discounts for a week or so we are joining forces with support groups like Just a Card and Holly and Co Workshop by shouting out about their causes to support small independents this season.
This means that the discounts may not be major but you will get some fantastic deals from every small shop be it in a percentage off or a free ‘Thank you’ gift with every purchase.
What happens when you support a small even if you are only purchasing something small? You get the maker, owner, entrepreneur – dancing, singing and jumping! You support an entire system, someone who loves their craft. Who puts all hours of the day and night into it, who sometimes works alone or in a partnership with their other half or friend. Creating a sustainable income for their families and future, reaching a goal of a simpler work – life balance.
Here are just some amazing small shops however there are 100s more out there that would appreciate your support as well.
