What Small Business Saturday Means To Me
Shopping Small is so much more than supporting local communities.
It's supporting actual people, working hard every day to make a dream come true.
It's putting food on the table. Helping makes end meet. And loads and loads of sacrifice.
We grow because of your support and commitment to keep things small and your trust in our company.
It truly takes a village.
I would personally not be where I am at today if it wasn't for an amazing group of small business owners, friends, and family who have been the support system I needed to get through the tough and focus on our company goals.
I sent out an email last week saying "When you Buy From a Small Business an Actual Person Does a Happy Dance" and I meant it.
When I began our company, I had no idea where it would take me. We began as a little company on Etsy and last December re branded into Southern Mess Boutique. I spent a lot of time reflecting on my goals and what I wanted our company to be about. I wanted something authentic, different, and personal. We are so much more than fashion. We are a way of life, and a tribute to Woman all over the world. We are about empowerment, community, and working together for a common good. We are real and we are just like you. Through our brands we reflect every day fashion. We are casual but like to dress up. Our graphic tees often say the things everyone else was already thinking. The faces behind our brand are Mothers trying to figure it all out just like the rest of us. The have flaws and insecurities, and that's the very thing we love about them.
Thank you from the bottom the deepest part of my heart for your support. It means the absolute world to me and my family.
Here's to an amazing December and an even better 2017!
