Hey there! Welcome to our Small Business hub! All of our posts featuring the small businesses we love and have reviewed are housed right here. We’ve been making an effort to be more conscious of our purchases and, ultimately, what companies we choose to support. Shopping small is an easy way to do our part in keeping our communities afloat while shedding some light on small businesses you may not have heard of — yet — and bonus: they may be local to you (and may ship nationwide, too).
