I am striving to bring back the good old days while keeping life real in my home, heart and Christmas shopping this season.
I grew up in a time period where the Big Box stores were only in the big cities, or not at all and most definitely not on every street corner.
Mom and Pop stores were the norm and everyone in the county purchased everything from their clothing to dish soap. These hardworking shop owners not only knew your name, they knew the name of your dog, cow and even how your crops were doing. Sort of sounds like Little House On The Prairie doesn’t it?
Well in the scheme of things it really wasn’t that long ago and it really was my life…a life I long for once again.
In fact, I never even went inside a Walmart until I was in college.
When I write this, it makes me realize even more how important it is to be to get back to the basics.
Oh, I know how convenient one stop shopping is and all that jazz, but seriously how about you and I supporting real shop owners who craft out of their studios and homes like little Christmas Elves creating home-made goodness just for you and I.
Or those other creative shop owners who have that discerning eye and go junking, picking and hop in their cars to travel to estate sales to find fabulous treasures from the past, filling their shops with one of a kind items.
Well now, if this is your cup of tea you my friends are in the right spot.
Beginning November 4th there will be etsy shops each week sharing their goods with you and I right here on my blog- Home With Jemma.
Did I mention that these shops will also be offering some super sweet discounts or giveaways for you on select items in their shops.
Yep, it’s true, true….sort of a Norman Rockwell outlook on life…
These shop owners all have hearts of gold and talent to match.
So, if you will just envision a main-street in small town America about 40 years ago with welcoming shop owners greeting you at their shop door, you will want to join in on this positive experience.
You will use a unique code that each shop owner provides you on their featured day to receive the discount or giveaway which they are offering.
This code is for tracking purposes only, we are interested to know if you like this style of shopping and the opportunity to embrace the small business owner.
If the response is positive we will bring it back in the Spring.
I am thrilled be working with these talented entrepreneurs as well as delighted in having the joy of introducing their beautiful shops to you today!
These links will take you directly to their shops and will give you the opportunity to visit them ahead time.
Looking forward to sharing the time and talents of these successful and inspirational business women.
Any questions please feel free to email me.
Thank you from all of us.
