Today is #SmallBusinessSaturday and I want to do a quick reminder to my garden friends to be sure to check out your local IGC ( Independent Garden Centers) to see what they have growing on for the Christmas Season. Did you know that The Twitter hashtag #SmallBusinessSaturday started back in 2010 and was used to promote small businesses on any Saturday. The hashtag is used similar to #FollowFriday to highlight favorite local businesses. I love adding #gardenchat so folks can connect with small business gardening friends on Twitter.
One of my favorite places to shop outside of a garden center is this adorable small business in a neighboring community. Let me share with you some of my favorite instagrams from this small business that sells local art and garden enthusiasts favorites!
Located at Levis Commons in the Historical Ohio town of Perrysburg you will find many small businesses to shop during the Christmas season. Please add this cozy little town to one of your future travel destinations. Expect nothing but unique products and friendly service from these shops in Perrysburg and be sure to try a homemade ‘buckeye candy’ in one of our many bakeries, candy shops and or coffee shops!
I LOVE sharing instagrams from #ohio … love supporting my local friends while shopping!
Lily’s is a one-of-a-kind shop locally owned and is know for their friendly service. Lily’s was created by Judy Church in 2001 and has been the owner of this one of a kind shop to this date. The shop started in neighboring community of Sylvania and moved to Levis Commons a few years ago. I’m excited that they did … shopping Lily’s is a gardeners dream with all their garden themed products. I really enjoyed the handmade bows hung on locally created garland and trees. Many art prints, table settings and items for the Christmas tree with a garden theme and more. Lily’s at Levis has some really great organic / handmade products such as soaps and candles as well.
Photo collage above of some of the bows and gingerbread themed goodies I love at this adorable art / garden shop taken last year during the Christmas season. I hope this post will inspire you to get out and shop local and support your small business today!
