I hope you have all your limbs and kin post shopping experience this weekend. Short post and little list I offer up as a links and things for “Small Business Saturday.”
As mentioned on my “Links: Friends & Resources” page, these are people I know, love, have worked with, and/or met and adore. I do not link share without some thought, and so consider these are golden support spots for the Small Business Saturday event. IMO, “any day” should be a small business day when you can make it happen.
I posted to Facebook and here is the list of links I received from my friends, presented alphabetical order, because I’d go crazy otherwise:
New friend and great designer of things sparkly and intriguing, Suzanne Colucci owns and opperates Belandari Designs. You have probably seen a few of her pieces in the Tarot Dailies, on in particular a Kyanite piece that I use for much of my client work. Along with friend Delia and her Phoenix Magick, she can also be found at Crafted Port of Los Angeles.
Owner: Suzanne Colucci

Location: Sherman Oaks, CA; Crafted at the Port of Los Angeles; and on Etsy
One of my closest friends and some of the CUTEST children’s clothing can be found at decafplush. Classics, dresses, coats, pants, rompers and overalls, tops and onsies, skirts and pants, boys and girls, and of course SALES!

FOTOMATIC – Photo Booth
Jenny Aja, B’s best friend since San Clemente high, owns and operates a photo booth that is a head above the rest business. I love the Fotomatic Photo Booth AND the Jenny A. team. Always great for parties and events we’ve had the fun little booth for holidays and personal events. I can’t say which I like more but I tend to have my “can’t wait for the Fotomatic Photo Booth” during the holidays as friends and family tend to ham it up the most with props, outfits, and general hilarity.
This gives us something fun and meaningful for everyone to take away. I highly recommend this fun photo booth!
