Shopping small has never been so important!

As a small business owner myself, I know how hard this year has affected us all. However I also know how as a community everyone is supporting each other even more so and I couldn't resist the opportunity to shout about some of the amazing small businesses who I have either bought from myself or adore their work and felt I wanted to share.

I have complied a long list which I hope will inspired you to shop small this Christmas and hope there is something for everyone...happy browsing!
