We've all heard the term, Shop Small, but what does it exactly mean? To Shop Small is to buy from and support small businesses. Many of them are a one person or family business selling from their own websites. Or they sell on Etsy, Ebay and other third party markets. Maybe they have a storefront in the community where you live.
Small businesses create a sense of community. They shop local themselves, support local charities and, if they can, hire local people living in the same town or city.
Why buy from me and Shop Small? Since I am a one woman business, I can give you great, hands-on customer service. You know when you buy an item from OakFern, it is either something I made or some unique item that I personally found on my travels. When you have a question or a request, you know that it will be me answering your email!
