When you support a small business, you are helping a dream come true. You are helping send a son or daughter to college or trade school, you are giving hope, and contributing to the local economy.
“America’s small businesses reflect the best of who we are as a Nation—daring and innovative, courageous and hopeful, always working hard and looking ahead for the next great idea.” - Obama 2013
I make every effort to support my fellow entrepreneurs, artisans, and hard working start-ups. I will be adding to my list over time but here are a few:
Peaceful Pig Pond, Gambrills MD. Where I buy the goat milk that makes such wonderful products (and it tastes good too). You can also buy humanely raised meat and eggs. The owner, Jen, is awesome and a hardworking farmer!
Courtney Madeline Boutique, Pasadena MD. Courtney Madeline is a small business that is just opening a brick and mortar store. She is carrying my products as well as products produced locally.
Montoso Gardens, Puerto Rico. Not local but a small business that has treated me exceptionally well in providing a product I need (cocoa pods) but are not available around here.
