I can hardly believe the holidays are already upon us! Thanksgiving is just one week away which means it’s officially time to begin holiday shopping, if you haven’t already. If you know me, you know I’ve had my holiday shopping complete since March…LOL!!
Next weekend marks the three biggest holiday shopping events of the year; Black Friday, Shop Small Saturday, and Cyber Monday. As we all know, 2020 has been a trying year for many so I am highlighting the small businesses in my community that I think could use a little extra love this holiday season. Many of them are even offering promotions and treats next Saturday, 11/28 in honor of #ShopSmallSaturday. Check out some of my favorite local shops below and please consider supporting a small business this holiday season. It means more to them than you could ever imagine!
The Light Blonde
The Light Blonde is all about sharing the light. Ali, the owner, was inspired to start this venture by Matthew 5:14 : “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden…In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” She personally designs all of her tees based on messages that she would like to put out into the world. They may be funny, encouraging, biblical or thought-provoking, but they will always come from a place of faith and positivity, aiming to inspire and spread love.
