Christmas, not only is it coming faster and faster each year, the retail push to spend, spend spend is increasing.
But before you pop down to your local big name retailer this Christmas have a look at the alternatives. Namely people like yourselves who are trying to get their small businesses started.
A solid Christmas sale can mean so much to an independent label. Not only is it valuable money the morale and confidence boost it can offer is far greater.
So take a look at
local markets (the Sydney Morning Herald has a quick round up across all states here)
and your local independent stores. You will find individual gifts that can be so much more exciting than the bland big corporate offerings.
So take a look around and see if you can make this Christmas a handmade Christmas.
