We want to acknowledge and support businesses that are keeping their team and customers safe by practicing COVID-19 CDC Guidelines.
Why are we doing this? We own 3 service based brick and mortar businesses all impacted from this pandemic. Owning a small business is hard enough without the long list of roadblocks, hardships and COVID guidelines that you now have to follow. Not to mention the potential of getting shut down, making less money every day.
We absolutely love local small businesses and can't begin to envision the world without the small business community and local artist/makers! This is our way of keeping the small business community around during this time and thriving after this pandemic. It costs us nothing but time to promote businesses that are doing amazing things, if we could all make that our mission to support one another, the world would be a more caring and better place. Let's truly be in it together and support one another in any way that we can, we all need a little kindness #spreadlove #supportlocalbusiness
