Today is considered #SmallBusinessSaturday! Tattly is a small business and while it looks all shiny and easy, it’s not. Running a small business is a consistent cash flow battle. Small businesses like us don’t have marketing budgets to spread the word, we rely on happy customers to tell friends and for social media mentions.
Here are some of the small businesses I’d like to highlight and that deserve our support. (Please leave a comment if there’s another small business we should support this holiday season.)
We are Closed Mondays | Brooklyn made rope products by Bekka Palmer.
Gift items such as pins, patches, pencils etc by City of Industry.
