Why I choose local
Before being a part of a small business myself, I honestly didn’t pay much attention to where the food, the clothes, the gifts, I bought came from. That has all changed. As a craftipreneur, you become more aware of what it means to shop and love local. It is a movement that has been steadily gaining momentum. More and more people are choosing to support businesses in their local communities.
We have felt this first hand when we participate in craft shows here in our hometown of Vancouver, Canada.
It’s all about relationships
There is something to be said about directly connecting with the people that have made what you are purchasing. The relationship developed is more meaningful. It makes the work we do more meaningful. And this is especially felt when we get the opportunity to collaborate with our customers on a truly unique one of a kind item. Onana has made a significant impact on where I choose to spend my money. Every dollar spent directly helps to build our community.
So when given the choice, choose local.
