Shopping Small Makes a BIG Difference
November 28th is Small Business Saturday, and this year it is more important than ever to shop small and support the backbone of our communities and economy. 22% of small businesses in the US have closed this year due to the pandemic (that's over 3 million businesses).
Where you choose to shop this season truly has the ability to change lives. When you shop small, you are buying from a real person (who is most likely doing a happy dance every time you place an order). You are helping them build up local communities, hire teams and create jobs and keep the economy going through your purchasing power.
When you spend thoughtfully, MAGIC happens.
Here are 8 other Small Businesses that I know and LOVE. Happy shopping & THANK YOU for supporting 'Ula Bloom and shopping small❤️
