Take a peek at our Sentimental Journeys page and you’ll see why we care so much for small businesses. Our grandparents always told us of a time when people not only helped their neighbor, but they really knew their neighbor. Everyone was connected by the simple fact that they belonged to the same neighborhood. They shared a sense of pride and adoration for their hometown and their country, and there’s something romantically nostalgic about that kind of inherent kindness, isn’t there?
We’re passionate about supporting small businesses because we believe that is the first step to bringing back that sense of community. We thought the beginning of a new year would be a perfect time to encourage our shop small initiative. We wanted to introduce our readers to some really special small businesses by giving away some of their great products all this week. So we teamed up with Kee Mo Sabe Espresso and Gelato, a Younique Cosmetics rep, FiveOneThree Bagel Co. and Flores Lane candles to give back twice; we give our loyal readers a little love, and then also do what we can to help get our readers through the doors of some of our favorite small businesses.
Below you’ll find the rules for these giveaways and how to enter. We hope that even if you don’t win next week, that you’ll consider shopping small as much as possible in 2018.
