Small Biz Saturday Gift Guide 2023

Small Business Saturday is just around the corner! I would love for you to take part. You can find MCreativeJ participating in the Making Local Small Business Saturday Holiday Market on (you guessed it), Saturday, November 25 from 10-4pm at Victory Hall in SODO, Seattle. I'll be joining many amazing local makers. These artisans are truly talented!

Here's a sneak peak at 9 of the makers in my small business Saturday gift guide. I wish I could buy all the things from each of them. And if you can't make it to the small business Saturday event, you can always shop online or follow them on social media to see when their next pop up event will be.
