Shop at Open Studios this Small Business Saturday

Krowji-based Bookshell Bindery have an important message for us this December, shop small – think big!

When you shop with small and local businesses, more than 50% of the money you spend stays in the community. You’re not only buying a unique gift, you’re supporting individuals who took a chance on their dreams and work with passion every day.

Small Business Saturday takes place on Saturday 3 December, which coincidently is also the same weekend as the Krowji Open Studios event. So what better way to show your support for local, small businesses than to ‘shop small’ this Christmas. There are lots of local businesses taking part and running special deals and promotions. Just check out the small business finder to see who and where they are.

Free keyring
To celebrate Small Business Saturday, Bookshell Bindery are giving away a free ‘I shop small, I think big’ leather keyring with all purchases over £20. Just visit them in studio 118 at Krowji Open Studio’s, or online at
