In place of my weekly Weekend Wanderings feature, I’d like to join in Small Business Saturday and highlight a few “mom shops” from around the web. Perhaps you’ll find the perfect, unique gift for a special someone (maybe even yourself?) and if you purchase, you’ll also be giving a virtual “thumbs up” for the entrepreneurial spirit.
A day to come together in support of the small businesses we love. The businesses that are the heartbeat of our communities and local economies. That day is November 27, 2010—the first-ever Small Business Saturday.
The Rusted Chain – “I’ll take one of each, please.” That’s what I want to say every time I visit Beki’s shop. Not only is her jewelry both simple and elegant (no wild fru-fru here), Beki is a fellow Kansan and is at the top of my “cyber friends I want to meet in real life” list.
From now until Monday night, enter TURKEY25 and get 25% off your entire order at The Rusted Chain! In addition, if you mention “freebie” in your paypal notes (right under the shipping address), shee’ll include a free stamped pendant with your order. These are pre-made and can’t be custom, but will be a universally appealing word like “hope” or “faith”.
Kelly Joy Boutique offers “handmade flair for girls of all ages.” I just purchased the above hair clip for my daughter to wear with her Christmas dress. Can’t wait to show her! Enter code BLACKFRIDAY10 at checkout from now through Saturday night to receive 20% off EVERYTHING in her shop!
I’ve had my eye on this hat from Mimi’s Babies for nearly 3 months. Not one to pass up a good sale from a quality shop, I bought it tonight! Merry Christmas, little man. 🙂 Mimi’s Babies is offering free shipping through Monday night. In addition, enter code FINERTHINGS20 for 20% off your order!
Kozy Kiddo offers custom products for mom and baby. If we lived in Florida (or anywhere that it isn’t freezing for Christmas) I’d be all over this dress for the girls! Kozy Kiddo is offering several Cyber Monday Sales: dresses 20% off (Regular $17.99), custom nursing cover 20% off (Regular $22.99), grocery cart cover 20% off (Regular $42.99), and ALL ready to ship items 15% off.
Denim Water Bottle Carriers Mini eCourse – In this course you will find the basics of putting together several different styles of water bottle carriers. You will learn techniques such as putting in elastic, embellishing, and how to add two different types of bottoms to your bag. Through Monday, use the coupon code DENIM to get the course for $4.95 (regular price is $9.95). This might be the perfect gift for your budding seamstress.
So many quality, creative businesses, so little time! I could be at this all night! If you own or know of a small, family-friendly business that should be represented, please link it up below, or leave information in the comments. Make sure to include any special sales that are offered this weekend!
