Small Business Saturday // Shopping Guide!

G U Y S ,   I T ' S   S M A L L   B U S I N E S S   S A T U R D A Y ! 

This year, consider shopping small businesses, rather than large, corporate businesses!

W H Y   S H O P   S M A L L ?

When you shop small, you're supporting a family, a community, and a passion. As small business owners, we put our heart and soul into our products/services. It's not just a "job" for us. We pay insane taxes, we are typically our own accountant, we do all of our own marketing, our own branding, etc. It's definitely not always easy to be a small business, but shopping small helps to show your support for all of those out there who are working extremely hard to pursue their passion. 

SO! As a fun little way to celebrate Small Business Saturday, I've put together a little Gift Guide featuring some of my favorite, mostly local, small businesses!

5. Live edge tables made by Matt! These are INCREDIBLE, hand crafted, one-of-a-kind tables made by our great friend Matt. He uses steel hairpin legs to give his tables and desks a modern mid century feel! We have one of these pieces in our living room, and it's always the hit of the home when we have guests over! Matt currently has a gorgeous desk made of spalted maple for sale (that's the one in the photo!) If you are interested in getting in contact with Matt, let me know! He doesn't have a facebook page quite yet!
