Since it’s February and every where I go these days I see HEARTS, I thought I’d show a little love. Love to the amazing women I see out there.. GETTING IT DONE. Most are not without male counter parts (although, some are) assisting them with the heavy lifting and cheering them on, but none the less…they are out there doing what they love. And no, I am not just talking about the 25 women who help make Seaglass the awesome place it is.
I’m talking about Erica of Brushin’ Up, Jody and Bobbie of Flea Body’s, Amy of The Painted Mermaid, Kelly of Baker’s Street, Janie of Vintage Market Place, Jess of Jess James + Co., Karyn of Second Skin Vintage, Tammy of Creative Cake Designs and Patrizia of Planet just to name a few. Oh, I also don’t want to forget Samantha of Saltscapes Decor which is opening this month. I love being grouped in with such a kick a** group of women in an area that appreciates local owned businesses. I love that Brunswick and New Hanover Counties are FULL of shops and restaurants that are owned by average Joe’s (and Jane’s) who know what they want and aren’t afraid to go out and get it.
Now to be fair, I’m all about equality :), there are some awesome businesses out there owned by couples and or men…Luna Cafe, Jester’s Cafe, Bitty & Beau’s, Brick & Mortar and ARTphics for example. It truly would take me some time to list each individually owned business in the area, the brewery’s and taprooms alone would need their own blog, but I have no objection to you doing so, please feel free to comment your own business or one you frequent often that you think needs to feel some LOVE…because all the marketing in the world will never beat WORD OF MOUTH! Let’s spread the love this February and let all the locally owned shops know we appreciate them. Search them on Google, follow them on Facebook and Instagram, frequent them and recommend them to your family and friends. Spread the word…Spread the Love. There is enough for all of us after all.
Hope to see you at the next Seaglass Market February 17th – 19th,
Until then Reuse. Recycle. Restyle.
