With Christmas quickly approaching, I wanted to share some of the small businesses I’m currently obsessed with! These shops are all places that I love to shop for myself, for Christmas gifts, and definitely have items on my wishlist this year. Let’s support small business this holiday season!
This year has been a crazy one to be sure. As a travel blogger who can’t really travel right now, it has been difficult to know what to share with you all. Luckily, I have found a lot of inspiration right in my own backyard. I have always loved living in Ohio, but now I am even more thankful to call this beautiful state my home. Ohio. Find It Here. has curated 10 lovely road trips for all types of interests and I am partnering with them again on another post to share some hometown travel inspiration with you today! In honor of Women’s Equality Day, I decided to stop and explore the International Women’s Air and Space Museum in Cleveland which happens to be one of the stops on the Women in History Road Trip.
I’ve partnered with Ohio. Find it Here. to share this amazing list of Black owned businesses in Cleveland, Ohio. If you have been following my blog for a while, you will know that I am always talking about supporting local businesses (especially in these crazy Coronavirus times) but today I want to specifically call attention to some of the wonderful Black owned businesses in Cleveland that we are blessed to have in Northeast Ohio. Many of these are Black female-owned businesses as well, and you know I love a girls supporting girls moment over here!
I am always a big advocate of shopping small and supporting local businesses, but especially during this COVID-19 pandemic where businesses have been forced to close their doors to the public. During these uncertain times, we must rally together to support our local favorite coffee shops, boutiques, and restaurants as much as we can. Today, I want to talk about supporting your local book stores!
During this bizarre time in history that we are living through, it can be hard to remember what day it is, let alone get dressed up to work from home. So many of us are wearing cozy quarantine loungewear almost every day now! People and businesses are struggling to get by. We are all worried about the health of our loved ones. We are all just trying to take this day by day as it comes. Something that has been helping me get through this time is seeing how my community is coming together to support one another despite the physical distance. People are buying gift cards and ordering takeout from local restaurants and shopping online at their favorite local shops.
