While growing Simply Stated over the years, we noticed there was a lack of community for like-minded entrepreneurs in our small rural town. We slowly started to create a group of vendors that we met at local craft shows and vendor markets, who were also trying to grow their business, chase kids around, and adult in general.
When the world shut down in 2020, many of us were affected by craft shows and vendor markets being closed down. And so many of us relied on those in-person events. As a result, we started a private Facebook group called Small Biz Marketplace. It's a community of small business owners, coming together, and providing our audiences with a virtual vendor market. But we do so much more than that. It's a place where you can come to find activities, home décor ideas, recipes to try, and much more.
It's been such a blessing to link arms with so many local small businesses over the years. If you haven't checked it out yet, we invite you to join us!
When you support small businesses, you make a big impact.
