#SmallBizSaturday Shopping Guide: 25 Brands to Love

From InHerShoesBlog by Renae

With everything going on in the world, we need to strengthen our local communities and be self sufficient NOW more than ever.  Research shows that over 90 percent of small-business owners contribute each year to their communities through volunteering, in-kind contributions, and/or direct cash donations. That means your purchase of a good or service at a small business is a great way to “pay it forward.”

I’ve compiled a list of some (emphasis on SOME – it would have been impossible to name them ALL) of my favorite small businesses and emerging brands I’d love for you to support today and every day with a focus on beauty and fashion.  P.S.: In Her Shoes has been committed to shining light on small businesses + emerging brands since its inception in 2009, so if you don’t find what you’re looking for within this list, feel free to browse the site. I know you’ll find exactly what you need.
