Small Business Saturday falls on the Saturday after Thanksgiving every year. If you’re a fan of small businesses, micro business, artists, and entrepreneurs, one of the best ways to support their work is to make a purchase from their business. Of course sharing on social media helps too. ?

Here are 12 shops and entrepreneurs to support on Small Business Saturday:

1. Woodlot

A Vancouver-based company, Woodlot makes candles made with coconut wax for a petroleum-free candle burning experience

They carry candles, incense, soap, essential oil blends, mists, and lotions.

2. In Unrelated News

Lauren makes enamel pins that “can help you express yourself, your feelings and your f*cks.” We’re obsessed.

3. Maple Holistics

Maple Holistics sells all natural, made in the USA, cruelty free, and sulfate free products for hygiene and daily care. The tea tree shampoo is amazing. They also have an awesome free sample program to try before you buy!

4. SarahLouCo
