Do you love independent businesses? Do you want to do more to support indie businesses, not only locally, but around the globe?
If your answer is “YES!”, welcome friend. Let me introduce you to JUST A CARD.
JUST A CARD is a grassroots campaign on a mission to encourage people to support, value and buy from artists, makers, independent shops and small businesses. Every sale, even just a card, is vital to their prosperity.
Since 2015 JUST A CARD has been highlighting the value to both customers and independents of shopping small to keep our towns, markets, events and online small business economy vibrant. The campaign is UK based, but they have thousands of supporters from across the globe, including the USA, Canada, Australia and Africa all united in spreading the JUST A CARD message.
So now is the fun part – JUST A CARD has teamed up with HandmadeHour to host their first ever online market, Visibility Fair. Visibility Fair is an online market shopping event where over 400 small businesses, artists, makers and independent shops are showcasing their work.
Shop via the dedicated Visibility Fair page HERE. You can shop by category, or just browse for stores you may have never heard of!
You may have guessed by now that Freshie & Zero is participating. This is the first online fair we’ve actually done! I love the JUST A CARD mission, and I love the UK! One of my favorite podcasts, RedHanded, is UK based so I feel a connection over there. I also backpacked there many years ago and I’d love to go back as an actual adult, not a 20-something party animal.
Another exciting thing to mention – many of the shops (including ours shhhh) will be offering a discount during the Fair! So pop over to the event page and find that fancy code to get 15% off your order during the event.
Be sure to show your support for small businesses like Freshie & Zero, and click on the links to get a head start on your Christmas shopping. Most of these shops are outside the US, so you’ll find all kinds of things you can’t get anywhere else!
Every sale for a small business like ours is hugely valued and we are so excited to take part on the first-ever Visibility Fair!
