There’s no avoiding the behemoth of Black Friday. And there’s no denying that it can be handy if you had your eye on a big-ticket item for the children for Christmas. BUT it is a difficult time for small retailers (and we speak from experience). Luckily, thanks to campaigns like Holly Tucker’s #campaignshopindependent and Just a Card, people are voting with their wallets and turning to the indies. Here are some amazing offers from small businesses we love – please support them (and us). It really does mean the world.
