Nearly the end of November and the Black Friday thing...
Occupy Black Friday, BUY LOCAL and give back to your COMMUNITY 🧡❤️💙💚💜💛
Almost a third of people start their Christmas shopping on Black Friday and it's always a bit jarring for small businesses and those in the sustainable/eco/ethical space. So once again this year I am pledging support to this year's initiative: #ColourFriday and #CampaignShopIndependent set up by @hollytucker (founder of Not on The High Street). This year small businesses need support more than ever as there are thousands of hard-working, brilliant and creative people whose livelihoods could be at stake. So I am supporting the need to encourage more thoughtful consumption - independently, locally and colourfully! So maybe swap some of your usual Christmas spend to support small & local businesses instead? I know I will be.
"We worked out we have the power to save small UK businesses at risk of closure in 2022 - if we each buy JUST ONE CHRISTMAS GIFT from independent businesses instead this year, we'll reallocate vital £2.7 billion between us" - Holly Tucker
I have created a GIFTS & GIFT CARD page on my website (so be sure to let your partners know 😉) (there are a couple of new products due imminently) - ideal for giving as Christmas gifts or birthdays near Christmas time - let's not forget those people!
The last Made to Order date will be Mon 20th December (official date). For local orders only it will be 23rd December for any really last minute orders.
Happy #ColourFriday and don't hesitate to contact me with any questions, feedback or shopping queries
Stay stylish! Lisa x
