SMALL BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT

Supporting small business is something that I’ve always been passionate about. Not only do small local establishments have amazing, handcrafted, one-of-a-kind products and services, but the stories and faces behind these businesses are even more captivating. In the Fall of 2020, I started this series to feature some of the small businesses I’ve visited, showing their unique offerings, products and stories. It is so important that we support small businesses now more than ever. So, if you’re looking for a new place to enjoy with friends and family, a new product to try or a new service for an upcoming event, I encourage you to check out one of these small businesses.
