It's Small It's Small Business Saturday! This year more than ever, focus on supporting your local community and your local economy. I'm sure you've seen the meme "When you shop small you support a dream and a family" well, here's mine. :-) This crew puts up with a lot and has been so supportive of me following this dream.
I have way too many to list but here are some of my favorite local brick and mortars that you can support with your holiday shopping: Books Reston's Used Book Shop or Scrawl Books, chocolates and handmade gifts Chesapeake Chocolates or River-Sea Chocolates, ship some tea from Elden Street Tea Shop or granola from Dano’s Granola, pick up pretzels from Nordic Knot, buy a bike or accessories from The Bike Lane, a gift certificate to your favorite restaurant or taproom Lake Anne Coffee House & Wine Bar, Local VA, Kalypso's Sports Tavern, Lake Anne Brew House, 100 Bowls of Soup or grab clothing from so many of us small businesses who offer branded apparel. Wouldn't you rather have your kids sport a local logo than a big brand?
Think about your other local salons, galleries, services that you can support too. Meg Donnelly, Nova Weekend Warriors , Rowan Tree, Reston Museum , Reston Art Gallery & Studios , Top Style by Kate Noda
There are so many others to support - feel free to comment with your favorites! #communityovercompetition
