I promised I wouldn’t mention the thing we are all going through. We all know the thing. It’s causing a lot of grief for small businesses everywhere – I know this because I am one of them. I know that shopping local is not always viable, but I recently learned about the #1in5 challenge where one in every five purchases you make should be a local business. Since we have a holiday coming up, I wanted to highlight a few local businesses, running specials for valentines day!
