Support Small Business Saturday
We’re sure that you were all more than aware that last weekend saw the shopping MADNESS that was Black Friday through to Cyber Monday, but have you heard of a slightly more low key shopping experience called Small Business Saturday?…
First started in 2013 this not for profit, grass roots campaign is taking on the task of supporting, inspiring and promoting small businesses across the UK on the first Saturday of December and beyond!
MiAL is not only a small business, but we’re a small business supporting small businesses! Each of our fantastic artists and designers are in the early stages of their careers with young businesses which need as much support as they can get. We facilitate this by provide much needed professional development and pastoral care through free workshops and lectures. In addition to this we try and give our artists plenty of exposure, not just online through our website, but also by taking them to fairs and exhibitions, such as this weekends The London Illustration Fair where we’ll be launching our Christmas Collection!!
So this year, in the hectic consumer driven build up to Christmas think about an alternative Christmas gift, one that will give back to the seller as well as the receiver!
