When you buy from a small business...

I came across this online the other day and it really rings true.

I think sometimes we forget the impact we have in our community.  But I do not forget what my customers mean to me, and do for me.  So I thought I would share with you what you, my dear customers, do for me when you shop at Pippi's.

When you shop at Pippi’s you are putting food on my family’s table, giving my daughter’s swim lessons, a summer camping trip for our family, and helping us pay our mortgage! You also make it possible for me to have employees so I can have some time at home with my sweet little family. 

So thank you, because I know sometimes it feels hard to step away from the computer and come downtown, and it's hard to stop the daily go, go, go to take a stroll through our little shops. But it means so much to me (and other shop owners) that you do.  Even if you are just stopping in to check things out, I appreciate you coming in, and I love visiting with my customers.  If it's been a while since you have visited Pippi's I hope you come in next time you need socks, or a special gift, or just to treat yourself.

Thank you for shopping local and supporting my family and our community.

Here is a little bit of cuteness to end this post:

Dressed like mom.  In Pippi scarves and hats, and gotta have the shades, mom always wears the shades!
