I love everything about today. Last year at this time S|L was 2 months old! I can’t believe how my business has grown and changed over the year. I traveled. I did a few markets. I met amazing entrepreneurs. I moved into Peddler's Mall in Lebanon and into Horse & Hare in Centerville.  All things I never, ever thought I would do.  All because you chose to shop small. Supporting small business means everything to those of us out here hustling to bring you the best of the best! 

I hope today you choose to continue shopping small and to help you do that, I'm sharing some of my favorites with you!  I have personally met and spent time with each of these talent, determined, beautiful women. (and men... Can't leave out Andy at BubbaRub!) I've learned from each of them, collaborated with some and worked along side of them on long days at market.  Trust me when I tell you, they are the best of the best! 

I'm so excited to be offering TWO killer giveaway this weekend featuring a few of these folks I am going to tell you about!  Any purchase made on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Sunday or Cyber Monday at State of Lovely will be entered into the drawing! What's up for grabs???

* Dinner for 2 at Valley Vineyards in Morrow, Ohio.  

* Gift Basket featuring Bubba Rub, Sweet Stems, Burlap Buttlerfly, Cashmere Bath Company, State of Lovely and Horse & Hare!  

Take a few minutes and go check out these businesses! Remember when you are looking for something special, shopping small means someone took the time to make that piece at home or picked it out because she felt it was special too!

You can order through Facebook or online. Meet her at an upcoming market. Shop her Etsy store. Visit their brick & mortor store or their booth at Peddlers Mall!
