Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday was started by American Express to help support our local small businesses. Last year, Small Business Saturday made roughly $12 million dollars. That revenue has gone to our communities to help provide jobs, homes and better lives for our families. I want to highlight several small businesses you should know about and will hopefully support.

Clutched & Covered was founded by Rocquelle Porch of Houston, Texas.  Rocquelle made herself a fur clutch last year, and that one time DIY project turned into a genius business idea. A Clutch Cover is simply a cover for your clutch. Clutch Cover is the simple way to spice up your old clutch but give you that “something new” feeling, and they are even made to order.  Follow her on twitter for more updates @ClutchedCovered

Wrist Soiree is brought to you be the crafty L. Duncan. If you follow her on Instagram you know her talents range from Martha Stewart style décor to Rachel Roy cooking to her signature bracelets and necklaces. They are stunning! Many of my blogging buddies own her pieces. Act fast, she is currently running a special on her products right now.

The lovely sister duo of Tiffany & Jen founded T + J Designs. These ladies say they were surrounded by beautiful, luxurious pieces all their lives, and that’s what led to the inspiration for their own brand. I am very fond of several pieces of theirs and I adore the sister duo.  Follow @tplusjdesign on twitter for more info.

Angela, founder of Gigee Marie, makes the most stylish clutches you have ever seen! I was introduced to her product by my lovely friend Eboni. Gigee Marie offers regular size clutches and mini clutches. Angela is based in DC and does pop up shops throughout the year. Follow her on twitter for more updates: @gigeemarie

Kristen Henderson is the owner of the Atlanta based vintage boutique, Lily Kai. The Lily Kai boutique has a collection of hand-picked jewelry and clothing. The boutique is having a huge sale on clearance items right now {60% off – 80% off}. Kristen has become a dear friend of mine over the years. You wont be disappointed when shopping her store.

Enjoi Cupcakes has been my go-to place to order cupcakes for my customers as gifts. It’s great to send loyal shoppers all across the U.S. cupcakes in a jar! Ashlyn Joi, the founder, is a shopper of Imperfect Concepts.  I am smitten with her cupcakes and can sing her praises all day long. She is based in Los Angelos and DC. You can catch her and the Enjoi team at events in both cities, but if you don’t live in either city, don’t fret! You can order cupcakes in a jar. Follow @enjoicupcakes for more information.

Each of these ladies own great businesses, and I support them wholeheartedly. I hope you will too. Please remember to support your local businesses. You can easily find them by searching Google, Yelp or social media networks. Also, don’t forget to support other small businesses virtually. Together we will build better businesses and help our communities flourish.

Who do you plan to support on Small Business Saturday? Do you have a favorite small business you love to shop or support? Please share so we can all support too.
