The holiday season is finally upon us! We are busy little elves here at Fuzzy Bee HQ, sending your parcels off into the world!
As everyone starts heading out to holiday parties, collecting presents, and getting into the spirit, we wanted to remind you to shop small this season. This week is Black Friday and many small businesses will be offering what they can to entice you into their little online shops! It's so important to remember that every little purchase you make keeps a maker and designer happy and healthy. Both their business and creativity rely on you shopping small and thinking about where you put your money! Amazing work is created each year and every little purchase can make the difference for a shop owner.
We'll be featuring a couple gift guides this season and we're starting with our 'Gifts For Her' guide. It features amazing wee shops from around the world. A lot of them are Etsy shops we are lovin right now and are the gifts from small businesses we want to see under our own tree.
