Supporting local small businesses is one of my favorite ways to shop during the holiday season. Here is a round up of some of my favorite denver shops, artisans + makers. #shopsmallsaturday
Okay, black friday… I get it. There are huge big-box stores opened at ungodly hours to lure you in with ‘deals of the century’. However, I want to remind everyone that tomorrow is shop small saturday. It’s a day I 100% support because it is all about community. When I give a gift that was made with love + typically by-hand, it just fills my heart. There are so many amazing makers in denver + I encourage everyone to get to know these amazing businesses + to buy all their things. Shop small!
