Holiday Shopping Guide

As you get ready for Thanksgiving and then the always crazy shopping season, I hope you will strongly consider shopping with local and small businesses.

According to the Local Business Saturday site, "For every $100 spent at a local business, an average of $68 remains in the local economy."  

By raising awareness and encouraging our friends to shop directly with crafters, small retail outlets and local businesses, we are all helping each other. 

In Tallahassee, we have a group called Mom's Time Out organized by the Mom-Owned Business Association, LLC, and we have worked to connect moms with moms.  We just published our first 2011 Holiday Shopping Guide which is chock full of great resources for shopping with local and mom-run businesses. 

Please check it out!  And if I can help you create handmade and personal gifts for your friends and family, please don't hesitate to ask!  

Visit my shops online at HappyLittleMonkey for pregnancy through age 1, and MonkeySeeMonkeyDoHLM for bigger little kids.
