So…

Here we are again! Thanksgiving is over and its Small Business Saturday.  The million dollar question is… Where on earth did the time go!!! This year has moved so fast, there’s been no time to think.  One minute it was January 1, new year’s day, now we’re looking at Christmas all over again.  Today, November 28th, please support small business, whether online, or brick and mortar.  Entrepreneurs truly rely on you to make this a big day for them, especially with the holidays right around the corner.

There are so many ways to find beautiful items created and sold by a small business. Just walk down your local high street, there are probably quite a few there; Etsy is also a great place to find unusual gift items created by talented individuals, and also to discover items you won’t find anywhere else. Today, ditch the big box stores (trust me they’ve made their profits for the year 100 times over), and seek out a few small businesses and make an entrepreneurs day! Happy Shopping

And remember…

If you’re looking for a pair of inexpensive funky leggings, these just arrived via H&M. They were $7.95 down from $17.95 {sale ends tomorrow}.  The quality is lovely and the splash print looks even better in person.  Shop yours today here.

Also, remember tomorrow is Small Business Saturday.  Shop your independent small business retailer, whether online or brick and mortar; it’s important as it’s the beginning of the holiday shopping season, small businesses really depend on you.  You’ll love the unique and one of kind items you’ll find for yourself and for holiday gifts.

Shop Til You Drop & Small Business Saturday…

In Daily Musings on November 23, 2012 at 6:26 pm

Well now that you’re 10 pounds heavier and possibly a few hundred to a thousand dollars lighter, due to Black Friday shopping,  I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving Day; giving thanks for your family, friends and where you are at this time in your life {I hope it’s a good place}.

Personally I don’t get sucked into the Black Friday shopping hype, in my opinion its major publicity in overdrive by the big retailers; I just truly prefer to shop in the comfort of my own home online, or go out to the stores when they first open on a lovely Saturday, and not be crushed in a wave of people pushing and shoving to get that “As Advertised” item.

If you were able to procure that special item you’ve been coveting, good for you, it’s nice when you get that special something for yourself or as a gift for someone else at a really good deal.

Tomorrow, November 24 is Small Business Saturday, and we small businesses count on you, especially at this time of the year.  So before you spend all of your money at the big box and high-end retailers, please give us small fry a thought, the beautiful, handmade, vintage and one of a kind items you can find from us are second to none.  If you have a small business you’d love to promote, either leave the name of your business in the comments section of this blog or leave your info at my Facebook fan page www.facebook.com/maylanascloset.

You can visit my Etsy store at www.etsy.com/shop/maylanascloset ~ I hope to have more new items uploaded by 2pm tomorrow… See you there!

This beautiful twinset will be available tomorrow 11/24 {around noon} in the Maylana’s Closet Etsy store. Brand new from Portobello Road, London

Clutch To Me…

In New Loves! on March 2, 2012 at 11:30 am

 

Browsing through my favourite shopping site, Etsy, I  came across this darling little shop by the name of Quistt. Quistt sells a wonderful array of adorable clutch bags and small accessories.  The owner, Patricia Quist -Therson, a native of Ghana studied Architecture at the New Jersey Institute of Technology.   However, her passion for fashion, moved her to design her own line of accessories.  You can see her African influence and architectural training shining through her designs.  I’m loving her wooden handled striped clutch which is in line with the bold print themes floating around this year. 

Wooden Handled Clutch - $50.00

Red Clutch - $40.00

Visit Patricia’s Etsy shop @ http://www.etsy.com/shop/Quistt?ref=seller_info I think you’ll love what you see.  

As a small business owner myself, I am all about supporting and promoting women-owned businesses.  Ladies, let’s get out there and support each other, we have no problem buying from our favourite high-end fashion stores; and there is nothing wrong with that, but take a look at what your small independently owned boutique has to offer, you’d be amazed at the quality workmanship you’ll find there.  Every Saturday is “Small Business Saturday” where you should go out and buy at least 1 item  from an independently owned business.  We need you.

Happy Friday Dahhlings!
