Today is Small Business Saturday, so I thought I'd share 3 small businesses that I adore and support. These three women inspire me so much. They are fueled by passion and purpose. So if you're thinking of getting someone special a unique holiday gift, you may want to check out these ladies.
Nell of NellEsc Designs is a local Bronx Latina, blogger, designer and mother of two special needs boys. One of my favorite pieces is the Young Lords fabric cuff. Whenever I wear it, I get so many compliments on it. Check out Nell's Esty store --> HERE
I had the pleasure of meeting Aurora Anaya-Cerda of La Casa Azul Bookstore at the LATISM Conference back in September. La Casa Azul is a much needed gem in our city. And the story of how it came to be is inspiring. In most major bookstores, you can barely find of a shelf of Latino authors- Aurora has filled an entire store of wonderful books all written by Latinos. If you're looking for something special, you will surely find it at La Casa Azul.
Jennifer Bunt is blogger and autism mom. She also created her own line of Autism Awareness Jewelry. "The creation of the Autism Awareness Collection was inspired by my personal connection with Autism Spectrum Disorders, as well as my belief in giving back to the community," Jennifer says. I shared Jennifer's story earlier this year, you can read the post in full, HERE.
