“Come on, come on. Listen to the money talk.”
This year, we decided to stay home from Black Friday shopping. We were never hard core door busters, but we liked to buy the boys a few new pairs of jeans and get a deal on batteries.
After spending a few years on the road doing craft shows, we have met so many awesome, unique people. We see the hard work that they put into their products and the time it takes to sell them. We know their families and their stories. We know the jewelry maker whose tent collapsed, almost ruining all of her inventory, the seamstress whose retina detached and had to take time off of work, the florist’s son who offered Josh breakfast and a place to stay when our car broke down, and the artist on a mission to further the good news.
We know that when we buy products from them, our money is speaking about our values. It’s saying that we value these people, and their families. It’s saying that we appreciate the countless hours they put into their trade, making sure that each product is just right. It’s saying that their values remind us of our own values, and we want to see them succeed.
We want you to know, dear customer, that your money talks too. We want you to know that when you support our small business, your money is talking. We’re not a large corporation that has mass market appeal. We’re a family business, and we have family values. Your money says that you believe in family when you buy from Bee Lovely Botanicals. Your money says that you want to support your community when you buy from Bee Lovely Botanicals. Your money says that you care about the type of ingredients you use on your skin when you buy from Bee Lovely Botanicals.
The next time you’re about to tender your hard earned money, stop and think about what your money is saying. Is this transaction going to support your morals and beliefs? Are these products good for you and your family?
Small Business Saturday is a great time to let your money speak to your values! We would love to provide you with quality products for your friends and families this Christmas season.
