You’ve all heard of this new shop local movement, right? I mean I always preach about it but that’s because I’m a small business owner. Why should I, as a consumer care? Well, I wanted to learn more so I spent an afternoon researching. And, I found some answers.
Recently, I’ve been having a little identity crisis for Thoughtfully Handmade. As you know, my slogan is Adjustable, affordable, adorable. While you can still personalize your cards with me and they are still cute, the prices of my cards have gone up. I was scared to do this- terrified actually. I still believe that $7 is too expensive to pay for a card, and I will never raise my prices that high. However, things have gotten more expensive and my time is now more valuable. What do I mean? Well, I’m about to show you what happens to your money after you purchase a $5 card.
So, as you may have heard, Thoughtfully Handmade has teamed up with Seniors With Skills to spread positivity. Ten cents from each and every card or bookmark sold will be going towards their operational costs! Without further ado, here is Jaya, the founder of Seniors With Skills to explain exactly what they are all about.
