Small Business Saturday


Sale & Giveaway!

Small Business Saturday

Today is Small Business Saturday, and that’s definitely me.  CEO of Linda Landig Jewelry.  Employee:  One. Me.  Doesn’t get much smaller than that! 

Its a good to stop and think today about who or what you are supporting with your dollars.  When you shop at small businesses, whether online or locally you are supporting real people, not giant corporations, that often syphon off much of the profits for those at the top. 

When you support small businesses you can know the people behind the purchase.  And in the case of the arts, you know the hands that formed the gift and the mind that designed it.

So I’d encourage you to think a bit about supporting small businesses this holiday season and year ’round. 

Art Jewelry Elements

I am a part of several wonderful online communities of folks who design beads and components for jewelry and/or design finished jewelry.  One of those groups, Art Jewelry Elements, hosted a Holiday Open House yesterday.  As a team effort, we published 29 posts in one day!  We shared  recipes, folklore, wine recommendations, and even a bit of  humor. Please visit the AJE blog , and check out some of our posts.  Each post includes a link to our team members’   shops, with discount codes through Cyber Monday.

I’m also part of a large and growing group called  Artisan Whimsy.  They are  running a huge sale through next Friday, Nov. 30th.  All the participating artists are offering online discounts in their shops, using the discount code  AWHOLIDAY.   And many of these artists are also hosting giveaways on their blogs.

I will be giving away the Pink Rose Earrings pictured here. These lovely earrings are designed with lampwork glass, peridot and sterling silver.
