There are definitely perks to shopping from small businesses.

Here are four good reasons to attend the Girl’s Night Out December Social on Dec 19th to shop small this season: 

1. You will Find Unique Gifts
Finding the perfect holiday gift can be difficult when you keep seeing the same stuff in every store. No one wants to give people a gift they’ve received from someone else or an item they’ve seen everywhere. Small businesses often offer unique gifts, especially if they are selling their own handmade products. Think of shopping small as an opportunity to wow everyone on your list!

2. You Will Be Supporting Your Community
Shopping at small businesses helps provide jobs for your community, and it puts money into the local economy. Plus, the small businesses at our annual Holiday Sip and Shop are all women dreamers. These local women businesses had a dream and made it happen by creating a business form their passion. When you support them you are support a local woman’s dream. And what is more amazing than that?!
