Forbes magazine recently had a post with 7 reasons to shop local. These really resonated with me as a shopper and small business owner. So I put together a list of some of my favorite small businesses for you to shop with this holiday season (in addition to Sweet Sprig of course ;)
7 Reasons to Shop Local
1. Stimulate local economy
2. Reduce the carbon footprint
3. Create more jobs
4. Give back to the local community
5. Better customer service
6. Nurture innovation and growth
7. Support someone's dream

Our enchanting gift boxes are a unique and special holiday gift for anyone on your list. Receiving a Sweet Sprig gift box is an immersive and intimate experience. Each recyclable paper box contains carefully curated Sweet Sprig products. From there your gift box is filled with real dried botanicals like pinecones, strawflowers, roses, eucalyptus and moss. Your gift box is elegantly tied up with raffia string and is finished with a mini dried flower bouquet. The final step is to seal your holiday gift box with a wax stamp.
On our website choose from five different custom holiday gift boxes. We can mail directly to the recipient with an inscribed card. Save yourself from the long lines at the post office this year!
We also offer build-your-own boxes in our retail shop at 14 N Church St, Schenectady. You select the items and we will create something gorgeous and custom for you.
Gift the joy of handmade this holiday season.
