Small Business Saturday is coming up fast! Celebrated on the Saturday after Thanksgiving in the USA (November 30th in 2019), and on the first Saturday in December in the UK (December 7th 2019), Small Biz Saturday is indie sellers’ answer to the corporate craziness that is Black Friday. It’s a great opportunity to show your support for small retailers both online and on the high street, with many sellers offering special deals, but also just a great day to discover some amazing craftspeople and independent stores. Independent stores offer unique, heartfelt items, usually have a lower carbon impact as the items tend to be locally sourced or made, and by buying from independent retailers you are supporting someone’s dream!
Here are some of my favourite online retailers (not paid promotions, just some of my faves!):
Two Cats Witchery - all the best in candles, bath salts, oil blends and beautiful candles, all with a witchy twist.
Red Raven’s Cauldron - gorgeous jewelry, from day to day wear to ritual wear pieces, alongside smudge sticks and other altar items.
- delightful handmade soaps, shampoos, body creams, perfume oil blends and more. My favourite fragrances from Future Prim are Dust Witch and White Witch, but they’re all really lovely!
Celestine & The Hare - adorable (slightly Norty!) needle-felted animals, and beautiful books about their adventures.
Foggy Forest Designs - gorgeous, colourful, organic children’s clothes, handmade with love.
