With Black Friday looming, our inboxes and news feeds are full of the latest deals. Grabbing a bargain always feels so good, and even better if you can do your Christmas shopping when the sales are on. People have been putting up their Christmas decorations earlier than usual this year, after so much uncertainty and turbulence, I think people just want to celebrate and see then end of 2020.
I have been so lucky that my small business has continued to grow during this pandemic. I am very fortunate that I have been able to continue working, and for the most part getting orders out and deliveries in smoothly.
There’s a quote that I see regularly saying “When you buy from a small business, a person does a happy dance”, and it is so true. I wanted to make a conscious effort this year to also shop small, and support fellow business owners.
I thought I’d share with you all a few equestrian businesses that you may find of interest. Some may be doing Black Friday deals (at the time of writing this not everyone has published what they are doing) But please go and check them out anyway!
Barker and Sloane
These guys offer luxury skin care for people who are “enjoying life outdoors”
I have their intensive Hand & Nail cream and I have to say it is amazing! With yard chores and all the hand washing and “anti-baccing”, my hands were struggling this year. But this cream feels so luxurious and really does repair my dry, sore hands. It’s a perfect gift for someone you know, or pop it on your Christmas list and get someone to buy it for you 😊
