Shop local, support Independents Day

Updated: Oct 25, 2020

This year more than any other we want to stay local. Many of us might even be lucky enough to still have a thriving high street near us, whether in a city village or a rural setting itself. But, it's also clear that right now these businesses are struggling, so if there is a way to support them, shouldn't we?

Christmas is coming and regardless of our income, we know we will be putting aside some of our cash on gifts for our children, so why not invest not just in our children's ( short term ) happiness, but also our long term local happiness by buying that coffee or after school snack from independent cafes, green grocers, meat from the butchers etc etc. The supermarkets will survive a recession, but those family-run independent businesses really will benefit from your money and custom.

Join us at our Virtual Christmas Market this year

We're going to be investing in independent businesses here at Maggie & Rose Life in the lead up to Christmas by listing your favourite online shops here in our Virtual Christmas Market So, if you have a small online business, or know someone who does, just fill out our submission form and your 'hero' product and shop could well be featured here in the next few weeks
