Independent We Stand’s Custom Holiday Lookout List
Bill Brunelle of Independent We Stand, an organization that empowers independently-owned businesses and seeks to give local businesses a louder voice in their communities, highlights some independent CustomMade affiliated businesses to look out for this holiday season…
If you really want to make an impression this holiday, buy that someone special a unique gift that you will never find in a big box or mega retailer. Something that will be adored and admired for generations to come. Something that will take their breath away.
Whether you have something in mind or you are just looking for ideas, Custom Made has made it easy to find unique gifts this holiday season.
But what makes a gift from one of the many artisans featured on CustomMade even more special? The fact that CustomMade can help you find local artisans in your area. And when you buy from these artisans, much more of the money you spend is re-invested back into your community than if you were to buy it at a big box. That is, if you could even find it in a big box.
So this holiday season, please take time to reflect on the reasons we celebrate and then “buy local.”
Thanks, Bill! We would love to hear from other Independent We Stand affiliates about your experience as a small, independent business owner around the holiday season. And if you’re a shopper who buys local, tell us about your favorite local businesses in your area so we can spread the word and get them more attention this holiday season!
