Small Business Saturday Recommendation

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!  I’m writing from the bathroom of the Omni Interlocken (Denver) where I am getting my hair cut in preparation for my photo shoot in the hotel and the city of Denver on tomorrow.  I start my day with an eyebrow wax from their spa, so be sure to follow me on to see the behind the scenes snaps.  It was a long drive (16 hours over 2 days), but a fun and beautiful ride to watch the country-side change from green to plains to mountainous.

Earlier this month I requested for small businesses to submit their information so that I could feature a post all about small business.  As you know when you spend your dollar with a small business, it circulates within other small businesses, thus making more of an impact that JUST the item you purchased; you help sustain a community.

This is my first stab at a holiday guide, at the bottom I’m also listing my other favorite holiday guides (3 are Nashville-based (Urbaanite, Native Nashville, and Naturally Stellar) as well as a HUGE curated list of black digital small businesses to support from Quirky Brown Love, so be sure to read all the way to the end.

Urbaanite – Listed on the Urbaanite’s site you will find “new, unknown and unique things created by African-American makers and creators in the city” and with this list of 15 items that are locally sourced, if you want to support small business, Nashville, and black entrepreneurs, this is the list.
Native Nashville – if you want to share a little bit of Nashville Small Businesses to anyone this holiday season, Native Nashville has the largest list.  This list is separated by color categories:  Jewelry, Travel, Food, Bath and Body, Home, Stocking Stuffers, Lifestyle, and Booze.  If you want to support large array of Nashville businesses, this is your list.
Naturally Stellar is another local blogger with a specialty niche that I would l like to share.  She is a full time blogger so she has researched the best deals , specifically with moms.  These items may or may not be Small Businesses or from Nashville, and a good list of gift items.  I hope you enjoy.
QuickyBrownLove – supporting the digital urban entrepreneurs, QBL has consistently compiled a large list of the best online urban items for men, women, and children in their comprehensive list.  I save this list and refer back to it throughout the year.
