Hi Bees!! Seeing lots of Black Friday posts…but wondering who contributed to Small Business Saturday?!? What did you get?
I went to this adorable small town ~60 miles north of where I live, nestled at the bottom of a huge mountain, and bought a ton of Christmas presents for family and they were all locally made, high quality and super thoughtful!!!! We had lunch at an adorable little cafe overlooking the mountain and it was snowy and beautiful! We had a blast! And we didn’t have to get up at 2 in the morning and brave the crazy Boyfriend or Best Friend crowds…
There was this one tea store and the girl there was soo passionate about the teas and things she sold…I spent $80 on gifts for my mother in law!How do you spend $80 on tea stuff?!?! Homemade tea leaves/stuff!!!
There were home made sports gifts (big sports family here!) including earrings, doormats, aprons, really creative things I’ve never seen in the big stores!!! My mom bought a handcrafted wheelbarrow (sp?) that was made out of wood from an old Pony Express station in the town that had been taken down a few years back. We got my SIL a handmade gold keychain made out of real Swarvoski crystals. Total steal…just thought I would spread the word if you are stuck on gift ideas!! =)
