Small Business Saturday
As an original small business owner having open my boutique Bella Dawn in a small town in New Jersey in 2004 I know how important it is to shop local. This Saturday is a day especially dedicated to small business owners, encouraged to shop small, shop local and support their favorite neighborhood small businesses.
I of course want to give you a list of some of my favorite places to “shop small” during one of the most exciting shopping weekends of the year. Some local to my hometown in NJ and others I adore in the city.
