Evening my lovelies,
So who is late to the party? Not me this year! I have been an extremely good mummy and been super organised. I have done as much as I can with small business or handmade but I did have to pull up my big girl pants and venture into the mayhem of Cardiff town centre ti finish off the last bits. But phew, wipe brow, I am done.
Is it just me though or does it get harder each year, the big chains are slowly taking over and Christmas is becoming so commercialised and I do NOT like it. So to do my bit, I have chosen to shop with smaller businesses as it makes me smile, knowing I have helped support a family who rely on our orders.
There are many reasons why I chose to do this but here are a few. You get much better customer service from start to finish. You often get to add some special touches at no extra cost and you often get a lovely hand written note or token of appreciation in your package. AND, the best bit, well to me anyway as I am rather odd like that, is the packaging. Its always blooming beautiful.
If you are looking for some inspiration or want to join in with the shopping small then why not pop along and give my top 5 pages a look on instagram. I promise you will not be disappointed. I however, cannot be blamed for the marital rows caused by over spending hahahaha.
Thank me later, love Jess xxx www.thehidingplaceonline.co.uk
