3 Reasons to Support Local Small Business

1. It is an Investment in the Community- For every $100 spent at local small businesses, $68 returns to the community (Small Business Administration)

2. Environmental Impact is Reduced-Local businesses make more local purchases requiring less need for transportation which mean decreased carbon emissions.

3. Small Businesses Foster Local Economic Growth-Small businesses help to create local jobs and contribute to the growth of other small businesses through the purchase of goods and services.

Now that you know just how important small businesses are show your support for show and tell on Indiegogo

(Almost) New Furniture

We went down to Uhuru Furniture & Collectibles today and got some great new furnishings for show and tell. We are super excited about the pieces and that our purchases are helping to support another local business that is doing amazing things for the Oakland community. With each little step we take our dream is getting closer to reality.
