#JustACard campaign came about when Artist & Designer SARAH HAMILTON saw the quote “If everyone who’d complimented our beautiful gallery had bought ‘just a card’ we’d still be open” by store keepers who’d recently closed their gallery.
I came across Just a Card Campaign on twitter recently and it definitely strikes a chord!
Instead of buying cake from the Supermarket go to the local bakery. Instead of buying coffee at a big International Chain go to the little independent coffee shop on your high street. Find a local Jams and Chutney maker Instead of buying big brand mango chutney to go with your poppadums .
For many small businesses the difference between getting paid and not getting paid a wage this week could be that one little sale!
Just a little bit of support to small businesses makes a big difference to them. Independent businesses are not asking for handouts. They are just saying spend a little bit of your shopping budget with the independent local and online retailers too.
