Please take a moment to read this article - an excerpt from the LA Times by Corey Whelan.
The desire to own and operate one’s own business is the cornerstone of the American dream. Small store ownership helps individuals make a living doing what they love. It also allows them to create and sell merchandise that the average consumer would be hard pressed to find in a chain or big box store. If it can be dreamed of, it is probably being sold in an independent business.
Many families have found themselves grateful for the jobs and paychecks provided by local shop owners. Parents looking for part-time work close to home, those in need of second jobs, teens hoping to acquire hands-on retail experience and full-time employment opportunities from in-store sales to stocking shelves, all help to support the over-all, financial health of our nation’s infrastructure, keeping both our neighbors and neighborhoods solvent.
Small stores and businesses help revitalize tired city blocks and main streets by generating foot traffic and adding to visual aesthetics. Local businesses donate to local schools, charities and places of worship and other local events.
The money you spend in small businesses help keep your tax dollars confined to the local area, which translates into improvements everyone benefits from. These can range from paving sidewalks to safer playground equipment and better security. The money you spend in local small businesses is a powerful tool, able to help keep entire communities thriving, vital and safe.

In 2010, American Express founded Small Business Saturday to help businesses with their most pressing need — getting more customers. The day encourages people to shop
at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
The single day has grown into a powerful movement, and more people are taking part than ever before.
This year, the big day is Nov 29.
Playing & stamping with clay! Cut the scalloped shape with a cookie cutter, used calligraphy ink for the font and a gold pigment ink pad to cover the rest. Finished it off with gold Stickles. Super easy!
Love using the wafer dies to cut felt.
We're all in love with this amazing glitter tape!
Great Texture Sand Paste (DecoArt) and Chalkboard Paint (Prima).
