Small businesses have been especially hard-hit since the coronavirus pandemic began, so it’s more important to support them than ever. What would a neighbourhood be without the cute mom-and-pop shops dotting the streets? What would a closet be without the one-of-a-kind pieces made by real humans?
We need small business, and small business needs us. This Small Business Saturday, we collaborated with graphic designer and author Amanda Jane Jones, who has curated an essential shopping list.
