It’s easy to get caught up with all the big-box doorbuster madness often associated with Black Friday and Cyber Monday. As a counter to some of that mania, there’s Small Business Saturday. American Express began Small Business Saturday in 2010 as a way to bring focus back to smaller local businesses struggling through the recession. Though it started as a movement to support local businesses by pushing traffic to brick-and-mortar shops, Small Business Saturday has since evolved to include small businesses of all kind, including e-retailers without a storefront.
As producers of fine leather watch accessories, we’re proud to consider ourselves a part of this movement. As most of you already know, we design all of our products in-house, we source our leathers from the finest American tanneries, and we’re happy to support local manufacturers by producing the majority of our soft goods right here in New York City. (And remember, we’re currently running 10% off everything in the worn&wound shop with the code BLACKFRIDAY2016.)
To do our part in supporting others like us, we thought it would be a great opportunity to give a shout-out to some of our favorite small brands, some based in NYC and some with only an online presence. If you’re looking for that perfect holiday gift, be sure to check out one of the shops below.
