Small Business Saturday

Normally I do a Sea Dog Saturday post, but since it's the busiest shopping day of the year, I changed my mind. First, I work retail, so I knew there would not be nearly enough time for me to pull together a complete Sea Dog post. Second, I wanted to shine the light on something great, Small Business Saturday. 

If you aren't sure what Small Business Saturday is all about, this says it best:

So this week I will spotlight some great small businesses I like and support. I also hope it will encourage you to shop small as well.

Hookin' For Rent



My pal Stacie at HFR makes amazing crochet items by hand, made to order. Please check out her facebook page. She is also one of the most caring and selfless people, so I would love if you showed her some love!

Rhinestones & Bobby Pins


If you like sparkles, then check out the creations from Jennie at Rhinestones & Bobby Pins. She creates adorable one of a kind jewelry as well as some great burlesque outfits. Go visit her Etsy shop and this Thanksgiving weekend use code SparkleFriday for 25% off!

Cheerful Homemaker


The Cheerful Homemaker has been one of my tweeps for a whiles (twitter friends) and she has always been crafty. Where she finds the time, I have no idea. There are tons of great gifts available from her Etsy store. She has recently added a ton of new earrings and hairpins to here Etsy shop too. This weekend she is running a Buy 3 get 1 Free Sale on all earrings. Check it out here!

Jewel Kade by Tiffany


I was just turned onto Jewel Kade by Toot Sweet 4 Two's Tiffany. They offer great jewelry pieces, charms, and some really cool custom canvases. There are a few pieces I have my eye on right now, I better tell Santa. There is a Black Friday special running while supplies last. You can visit her Jewel Kade website by clicking here.

Vaud Villian Toys

The Talented Nick Bane has recently opened up shop with Vaud Villain Toy (love the name). He is a successful animation artist (such as Metalocalypse) turned toy designer and he has some great custom creations as well as toys from other artists. If you are looking for a unique gift or something for those impossible to shop for men on your list this is a must stop shop. There are some great sales for the weekend running now, so click here so you don't miss out!

In honor of Small Business Saturday I will be offering FREE AD SPACE to small businesses that want to advertise on this site. Use Code SMALL when checking out. Just click the sponsors tab at the top to select your ad.

Here is a complete list or links to the awesome businesses I highlighted above.
