Small Business Saturday Is Here!
We have been a small business for the last four years now and it is a full time job and a half.
All of the different parts that make a business or entity function is amazing to say the least.
From creating the thing your business is built around, creating the content, writing a clever caption, interacting with other accounts online, responding to comments, messages, crafting the next email about your thing, thinking about what's the next thing, making the actual thing. It's a lot of things, and when done well it is a beautiful sight. It's far from easy and most of the time takes a village to maintain, so from us we are so thankful to you reading this and all of the time you have spend with little piece of the internet, it seriously means the world to us and simply couldn't do with you.
Today we wanted to share some of our favorite businesses that we know you will love and the deals they have going on this weekend.
In no particular order and without further a due.
North End Bag Company
Northend Bag Company is the company that had the chance to design a signature Stay Bag with. It was if you took our home and made it into a bag, it was perfect! They create some of the finest hand made accessories I've ever seen or felt. Their small team creates a stunning span of well designed products and each one of them is made with an insane amount of care.

Reef Rain Aria
Jessica from Reef Rain Aria might be the sweetest person that we have met this year. When we officially met in person for a project we were working on together I think we became instant friends. She makes the most thoughtful and timeless gifts. Hand stamped books that can be customized and beautiful hand made bracelets. I have about three sets of them and I am in love.
