Whether you’re exhausted from the Black Friday crowds or too lazy to face them (like me), online shopping from the comfort of your home over the weekend is where it’s at. Here are nine brands you should be shopping this Small Business Saturday, because while these companies themselves may be small, the items they stock pack a powerful punch.
If you have some local businesses you can support in person, that’s great, but online, you have endless possibilities to support indie brands. Clothing, beauty products and more are made even more special when they come from less well-known shops. What I love about shopping from these types of businesses are the personal touches that come along with the experience. Something as small as a handwritten thank you note in a package goes a long way. It’s those little things that will forever keep me going back for more from these stores.
I’ve rounded up a few products from some of my favorite smaller brands for your viewing (and shopping!) pleasure. Honor this American Express-endorsed holiday and support local businesses without the crowds as you relax this Saturday. Once you see these items — it’ll change the way you shop post-Thanksgiving from here on out. Happy Small Business Saturday, everyone!
