GaptoothDiva RVA Small Business and Cyber Monday Shopping GuideYou know we have the wonderful opportunity to meet some fantastic entrepreneurs in the areas of fashion and lifestyle through out the DMV area. I get excited at events when I see so many hard working people with their table displays and their unique products, ready and willing to be a staple in the local style scene. Below I have compiled a list of individual business that you should check out and support for Small Business Saturday on November 24, 2012 and on Cyber Monday on November 26, 2012. If you have the energy to stand in line at large retailers to get great deals on big products, I know you won’t mind simply clicking on a few links and saving yourself the energy and time, shopping online.

Support local small businesses and online stores, as they attempt to knock out the mass-produced and make a name for themselves in their respective niche…

It’s easy to run to the mall and get the latest “it” product that everyone is clamoring for, but try getting your loved ones something they can truly appreciate.

I will be posting a few more businesses in the Part II Shopping Guide, so stay tuned for more links and ideas for your Christmas shopping.
