I saw this posted on Facebook and I think it’s a wonderful idea so I want to share it here. As you plan and do your holiday shopping this year, why not purchase from local small businesses, artisans, craftspeople, self-publishers and the self employed? Put a little of the economy back into the hands of someone other than big business for change. These are people who are committed to their trade and put a lot of heart and soul into what they do. What a wonderful way to give a gift that benefits everyone!
