Shop Small. Shop Local.

This summer Kadi and I had the opportunity to spend 4 glorious technology free days in Big Bear at an Entrepreneurs camp called The Unique Camp. We had an amazing time in the great outdoors and connected with a great group of creative, inspiring people doing amazing things. We took seminars on fundraising, social media as well as made t-shirts and had a futuristic themed dance party.

CAMP is the brainchild of Sonja Rasula the founder of UNIQUE USA, a trade show featuring small, independent makers. Sonja created the show as a way to bring local-made design and art to the masses while helping to grow and support the US economy and small businesses. Right up our HBH alley.

This weekend December 6th-7th is the LA Holiday Market in Downtown LA. So if you are in LA this weekend, pull out your shopping list and head on down. Because nothing says spirit of the season like supporting small independent businesses. Shop small. Shop local.

A serial entrepreneur, her journey has led her to explore and discover different parts of herself. Eventually she landed in Europe where she spent several years before returning to her hometown of Atlanta where she opened WAX, Atlanta’s first waxing only studio and then BUFF, Atlanta’s first natural nail bar.
