Sharing is caring!
Times are tough right now. We all know that. While most businesses are suffering, large corporations like Amazon are not. This is a time for us to be mindful about where we put our precious cash, because it could be the end of many of our favorite small businesses.
Instead of adding more items to your Amazon cart, think about what you can buy from small businesses instead. Etsy is a marketplace full of small businesses that already operate online. Shipping costs are minimal and they can get to you quickly too. More than that, you can feel good about your purchase from an Esty shop because it is directly benefiting the person you buy it from.
Rather than support large corporations that are going to be fine regardless of what happens with Coronavirus, some of our small businesses won’t see a dime from the bailouts. And, the small business loans may not be enough to pay the rent and keep the lights on when there is no income rolling in.
So, without further ado, I’ve created a list of affordable items you can buy right now that will directly benefit a small business owner.
I’ll be honest, I’m a sticker fanatic. I love stickers. I put them all over my suitcases and bullet journal. I always have one special spot for my “favorite” on the side of my water bottle. I used to pepper my notebooks in school with colorful stickers. And, you can bet that my laptop case was covered in stickers at one point too.
Stickers are easy to travel with and don’t cost a lot of money. They’re easy to collect from different places and can serve many different purposes!
I am the girl that squeals with delight when businesses give out free stickers! But, let’s be honest, the best stickers are not usually free. These small purchases can mean the world to a small business owner. At the same time, your purchase could help to remind you of your own favorite quotes, flowers, and designs!
Check out these eight epic Etsy stores that specialize in unique, artistic, and high-quality stickers.
All of the above images are from the Etsy store creators, so please click on them and consider making a purchase. They deserve our business and our bullet journals deserve these stickers.
Enjoy purchases you won’t regret and support small businesses in the time of the Coronavirus. We’re all in this together. #StandWithSmall
