What is Shop Small Business Saturday
and Why is it Important?
"Founded by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday takes place each year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. American Express started the shopping event in an effort to boost spending at small businesses during the holiday season and help establishments remain open during the recession." (source, Newsweekly)
Since it's inception, this annual event has helped small businesses across the country thrive and stay vibrant. It strengthens the community by promoting local creative entrepreneurs, new start ups as well as established businesses. Your locally owned businesses are your best resources in town! Not only will they have the things or services you desire, they also have the people who are ready and eager to help you!
Shop small every day and on Small Business Saturday, November 30th, be sure to give some extra love!
My name is Jennifer LaRoche. I am a Massachusetts based Photographer and Owner of two photography businesses. In 2011, I opened an Etsy shop called: Stamp and Note Photography. Under this name, I sell my nature, seascape and landscape prints and photo greeting cards. My business name came from a simple idea. I provide a forever stamp with every note card order so all you'll need is a pen! I also sell my artwork on this website and at local juried art shows.
I wouldn't be able to do what I do without you!
Thank you for supporting small businesses like mine, every day!
In 2014, I established my portrait and event business: Jennifer LaRoche Photography. I offer a variety of photography services to clients in eastern Massachusetts including: family & senior portraiture, branding, events, weddings and surprise proposals. Please visit my website to learn more!
Share the Love!
