“When you buy from a Mom or Pop business—-local or small business owned!—-you are not helping a CEO buy a third vacation home.
You are helping a little girl get dance lessons, a little boy get his team jersey, a mom or dad put food on the table, a family pay a mortgage, or a student pay for college.
Our customers are our shareholders and they are the ones we strive to make happy. Thank YOU for supporting small businesses! “
(Vikki here now! hehe) You all know I’m a firm believer in small business, buying local/hand made if possible, re consuming, shopping at thrift stores, gardening and all that good jazz. This is a little paragraph I came across and felt compelled to share. It is so true! This is one reason I buy (and sell!) on Etsy.
Etsy.com is a website for ONLY small businesses and people who create their products from their own homes! Who are supporting themselves and their families by following their passions and creating one of a kind unique items for you to enjoy.
So head on over to www.Etsy.com and have a looksie! I bet you will not be disappointed. You can check out my original impasto (textured) acrylic paint shop through this link here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/MyImaginationIsYours
Thank you for taking the time to read this and perhaps deciding to buy local or from a small business. The best gifts are those made from the heart. Have a wonderful Friday and a safe and happy weekend ya’ll! ^hugs^
