Have you shopped small recently? With the holiday season upon us, I encourage you to do some holiday shopping with local, individually owned, and small businesses within your community! On instagram, I asked my audience to share their favorite small business with me… Here are a few of the results! (PS- did I mention these are all WOMAN OWNED? Love that girl power!)
