As promised, I wanted to let you all know of some of the fine people that I try and support during this time of year. Saturday was small business Saturday, which is intended to help small, locally owned businesses. A lot of people don’t realize that this can also mean independent authors, artists, musicians, etc. So, since this is Cyber Monday, I wanted to give you all some other places where you can find some great gift ideas.
First of all since, I know that a lot of you will be on Amazon today, let me go ahead and make some suggestions that you can find there.
For those of you looking for that someone who enjoys coloring, I recommend Henna Dreamers, click on the cover below to go to the Amazon page.
Do you have a reader in the family that you are looking to pick up a gift for. Might I recommend my books, the works of Bobby Nash, or the debut novel by J.A. Tony? You can click the names to visit the Amazon author pages for a list of complete works or click the links below for these recommended titles.
Now, let’s look at the more unique gifts. The following individuals can be found on Etsy.com.
My cover artist/wife sells prints and her one of a kind sculptures online at Etsy. You can find her store here.
Do you know anyone who enjoys handmade quilts or bags? If so, I have just the shop for you. Jul’s Treasures specialized in quilts but also makes wonderful handmade bags. My wife picked up a purse from her and has loved it. So, please check it out.
Do you have a manly man on your list? Might I recommend something that has been forged? North Crescent Iron hand forges different items from railroad spike bottle openers to knives and other items of interest. Check out their store for awesome items like the one pictured below.
Lastly, for those who are looking for something more rustic, I would recommend Northwood’s Carvings. They are handcrafting some fun items for home decoration or to trim your Christmas tree with.
There you have it. If you want to help support the little guy, these are the ones that I have supported in the past and hope to continue to do so. Do you have different individuals that you’re supporting? If so, please share in the comments below.
