We are currently enjoying turkey leftovers with the Christmas/Holiday Season upon us. Black Friday has come and gone, Shop Small Saturday is today and Cyber Monday is just 2 days away. The season comes with an avalanche of advertising bombarding us! We would like to share with you a suggestion to consider all through the year: #shopsmall. Small Business Saturday is being promoted on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, however we would like to ask you to consider doing this all year long. Why? Because so many of us small businesses provide our services because of the LOVE of what we are doing and the desire to fill a need we have been made aware of. It’s usually not all about the money. Don't get me wrong, the dollars are important because this is how we feed our families. We certainly aren't getting rich off our small businesses, but we are loving the fact we are making a difference in people’s lives. Here at Perfectly Preemie, this is very true. We are a small family owned business made up of Cressie (Mom), Kevin (Husband), Melissa (daughter) plus Rachael (team member). It's is our goal to make a difference in the lives of preemie parents and their families. We also keep many small sub contractors busy with our sewing needs.
We will be here to provide you with Extraordinary Clothing for your Extraordinary Babies. We are committed to providing you with great customer care. We give back to our NICU community by supporting our local NICU and many more support groups with donations of caps and clothing throughout the year.
Here are 6 reasons to consider shopping small, we are sharing these from our friend @shegotguts. We teamed up with Stephanie to be apart of her Small Business Saturday Gift Guide.
