If you’re a lover of social networking application Instagram you may have seen the huge hype of shopping local and supporting small businesses, not only during this festive season but throughout the entire year. Some of you may be thinking what all the hype & fuss is about. Right?
There are lots of reasons to buy local. For instance you are supporting many small business owners in pursuing their dream and making their time worthwhile. You are helping them put food on their table, clothes on their back and a roof over their head. Not only are you supporting these individuals and their dreams, you are supporting the community; as small businesses are likely to buy their materials and goods from other small businesses. See the chain?
I was once like you, I actually didn’t know so many great small businesses were around until I started up All Things Little. I was truly fascinated at the amount of work these mothers were putting into their small home based business to help provide for their families and put some goodness out into the community. Now I see them popping up all the time and I think it’s great. Individuals pursing their dreams and interests whilst at the same time providing beautiful products to us, their buyers.
All Things Little has been up and going for 6 months now and I cannot fathom the amount of support from small businesses to other small businesses that I have encountered. It is absolutely inspiring to watch mothers inspire and support one another and their dreams rather then compete with one another. It doesn’t matter whether you have a following of 4000 or 200 the pattern of support from each and every individual I have seen is beyond amazing.
I have never seen a negative vibe between businesses and I have come across some absolutely beautiful mothers all working there butts off to bring you unique products that you won’t find in your local shopping centre. From decor goods to clothing and accessories, Mothers are putting their love and time into bringing you some really great products at affordable prices!
All Things Little supports small & local businesses 110% and we hope that you can too because we all know – Local is the new Black.
