Independent shops, galleries and creative businesses are celebrating this week by sharing information about them and their businesses on social media.
The campaign was set up to encourage people to support small independent creative businesses by buying 'just a card'. The campaign was set up by Sarah Hamilton..
There has been a real push in recent times to encourage shoppers to support their local shops. Small business Saturday is another event which is really positive in its approach to remind shoppers to shop locally and independently. Small business Saturday is on 7th December.
We are really lucky at Polka Dot to be able to showcase so many independent jewellers. We sell the work of over 60 jewellers, from those who have recently graduated to more established makers who we have worked with your years. By buying through Polka dot you are supporting two businesses, our gallery and the maker. You can browse our selection of jewellery online here
You can visit our store in Exeter or Taunton, details of our shops can be seen here
