Small Business Saturday is all about supporting small local businesses.
 
 
There are lots of versions of this quote
 
When you buy from a small business, you are not helping a CEO buy a third vacation home. You are helping a little girl get dance lessons, a little boy get his team jersey, a mum put food on the table, a dad pay mortgage, or a student pay for college
 
that are shared on social media, but what does it really mean.  For the small businesses we help and support, buying from them helps mums to juggle having children and working, allows our artists to fit in a business around family life, a husband working shifts, having a baby, being there for assemblies and nativities, looking after a little one with chicken pox, making jewellery and other precious keepsakes in the evenings, at weekends, or during the school day.
 

 

Our keepsake artists love being able to earn money, be there for their family, act as a positive role model for their children, and sometimes to be able to work in their pjs!
 

 

Leah from Ickle Pickle Prints gave us her version of what your support means to her:

When you buy from a small business, you are not helping a CEO buy a third vacation home. You are helping a little girl go to ballet lessons, a little boy spend quality time with his mum, and a mummy to work a career around the demands of family life and pay the bills. 

Supporting Keepsake Association artists means your money isn’t going to millionaires; it is going to real people who are incredibly talented and work really hard to make their businesses a success.  They make beautiful items like these:
