Small Business Everyday (not just Saturday)

 The Abbey Interiors and Boutique - Guelph, Ontario

If you're a regular reader of my blog, you know I am a HUGE supporter of local and small businesses! I feel that Small Business Saturday really should be Small Business Everyday as these shops and boutiques bring us so many unique and wonderful items. By shopping from your local or small town merchants, whether they be in a store front or online, you are supporting families, neighbours and your friends...and...you are getting amazingly wonderful and one of a kind pieces in return!

There won't be a lot of writing in this blog....The photos are a list of my 'go to' small and local businesses. Just click on the photos and they will take you to the websites for these fantastic shops and boutiques! 

Remember..... #SHOPLOCAL

You can also support your local restaurants too! Southwestern Ontario has some AMAZING chefs and a plethora of resources for local food sourcing and cuisine! Take advantage of local talent and scrumptious food by eating at your favourite local bistros, diners and restaurants. Here are some of mine:

I hope you have a chance to get out this weekend and enjoy your local businesses and restaurants! There's something special and very much needed about supporting those friend and neighbours around you, to help them grow their business so you can continue to go back and enjoy their wares!
