Out of all of the shopping days this weekend, if there’s one day I like the most it would be Small Business Saturday, and not just because I’m a small business owner, but because there are so many small business out there just doing their thing, so why not support them. Here are my top 5 reasons to support small businesses as well as some neat businesses to check out.
Top 5 Reasons To Support Small Business
1. Supporting small businesses in your community directly supports your community.
2. You receive personal one on one service.
3. You’re supporting someone else’s dream.
4. Want something tailored or personalized just for you, many times this is the route to go.
5. You’ll put a smile on someone’s face (the owner).

Say hello to the newest addition to The Pink Locket family, the Handmade Jewelry Subscription Box. As you can tell from the video, there were many stages to get to this point, but it was very exciting pulling it together.
Check out how it works on my new subscription site . Just picture getting handmade jewelry delivered to your mailbox each month in a beautifully wrapped box. I’m sure you’re going to love this new service and love the jewelry even more. Also check out my FAQs page to answer any questions you may have.
A special “thank you” to customers who have ordered their Father’s Day gifts so far. If you haven’t ordered yours just yet, don’t fret there’s still time, you have until June 14th to place your order. Creating personalized jewelry and accessories by far is my absolute favorite, there’s always a special story behind each one. Check out some of the options in my Etsy store for personalized gifts for “Dads that Rock!”
Every Mother’s Day I try to buy my mom keepsake and memorable gifts, as do most people. There’s just something about a personal gift that makes it great. Now my mom is the type if you ask her she’ll tell you, “Buy me a bottle of perfume,” she’s a perfume lover for sure. My sister and I are always like, you must want something else. This Mother’s Day I’ve added a new jewelry piece to my personalized jewelry collection, check out my new two tone initial disc pendant necklace. It’s so lightweight and looks great layered with another delicate necklace.
If going the personalized route is not your Mom’s thing, maybe she’s a fashion forward lover. In that case my array choices of statement rings also make great gifts.
Be sure to check out my Etsy shop for more gift ideas for your mom. Remember there’s free shipping on orders over $25 and the deadline to place your Mother’s Day Order is May 3rd.
A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of joining other creative entrepreneurs at CNC’s Annual Holiday Market. I don’t do a lot of shows, but when I do I like to change up my displays a bit. Operating on a shoe string budget, I needed a way to nicely display Statement Rings . I found this wonderful idea on Pinterest and used it as my inspiration from Planet Blue:
Gathering some tools and supplies I had laying around I was able to create this white and gold accent jewelry stand to display my handcrafted Statement Rings beautifully.
Here are the simple steps to create your own!
Mark your calendars for this Saturday, December 6th and come visit the Chattahoochee Nature Center and shop at its Annual Holiday Market. You’ll find some really nice and unique Holiday gifts for those on your list. In addition, the Nature Center is FREE for the family.
If you missed our sales during Black Friday, Small Business Saturday or Cyber Monday you can still get 25% off your orders if you come out to the Holiday Market. This will be our last sale for the Holiday season. We can’t wait to see you there!
It’s Giving Tuesday! A lot of times when people think of giving they think of some sort of monetary donation or giving away something tangible. The reality is giving can be as simple as giving your time to someone who really needs it, giving your expertise and sharing your knowledge. We all know the power of “word of mouth.” It’s how many entrepreneurs get off their feet and it’s also free publicity. In honor of “Giving Tuesday” I’m giving some fellow entrepreneurs who I know personally a shout out. They’ve created wonderful brands and stand behind them 100% and if you don’t believe me then just check out their products…one word…A M A Z I N G. Don’t forget to pick up something for yourself and someone else from their stores too! 😉
