Supporting Local Businesses

Today my post is about supporting local small businesses. We all want a bargain and search the internet from the comfort of our homes. It’s not always true that you can find cheaper versions online, and even if it is the case – I think it is equally important to support our local businesses. Although I do a lot of online shopping there is nothing better than actually going into a boutique, feeling the material or trying on things – and having that contact with the salesperson.

Especially now, because of COVID 19 pandemic so many businesses have gone under or will go bankrupt unless we lend a little support, particularly small businesses.

In my post, I am wearing a dress from Joy’s boutique in Zürich. She sells Italian designer fashion and accessories that are reasonably priced. Besides having the most beautiful designs, Joy, with her warm manner is very competent and gives honest advice. You know when the shop assistant is insisting how fabulous you look in something that obviously doesn’t suit your body-type, or, they try to sell you something that’s way too big or small for you! I assure you this will not happen at Joy’s boutique.
