SEND GIFTS & SHOP EARLY

We are all trying to find ways to stay connected to each other. We are also bored. And we want to buy from small businesses. It is the perfect trifecta to start doing some online shopping! Do your best to not hop onto sites like Amazon to shop. Those large sites are cannabalizing small business and often have almost impossible contract terms for small businesses to sell on them. Instead, use these sites that will connect you direct to real small businesses all over the world. You will have a much better shopping experience, you will discover way more interesting products and you will get a chance to buy directly from a real small business owner – having a direct impact on their business.
