The Benefits Of Shopping Small Business

So you may ask yourself what are the benefits from buying handmade products from a small business as opposed to a bigger corporation? Well, for one, you know exactly what the ingredient list is and don’t have to worry about putting harsh chemicals onto your face or body.

I prefer supporting small business owners and entrepreneurs when I can. The reason why is knowing what is going into the beauty products that I will be purchasing since I have sensitive skin and allergies to some things. I do check out the ingredient list so that my allergies won’t be triggered. I prefer purchasing skin care products that use all natural ingredients.

Another benefit in my opinion is the quality of the product. Most homemade skin care products are made without harsh chemicals and are beautifully handcrafted. The amber colored jars that farragio uses are so gorgeous! I can’t wait to make my first purchase through them!

Another added benefit would be that you would be financially helping a small business owner provide income for their family by buying their products. Isn't that worth it to you? I would say yes, because then it would make you feel better that you were able to help that business owner make an additional income through your purchase.

So to sum it all up, is it worth it to purchase products from a small business owner? Yes it is, because not only are you receiving quality and beautifully crafted products, but you are helping them out a little bit more financially and that is worth it all!

Why Buy Handmade

hands in shape of heart

With a new year comes new opportunities to learn and grow. I'm having so much fun running farragio and am excited to continue learning and growing as I develop my business in the new year.

I was pondering this morning what it means to buy handmade. Sure, there are the economic aspects of it, but it goes deeper than that. Even as I make handmade items I also shop handmade because I like contributing to other artisans who are just as excited and having just as much fun honing their craft...

Unique Furniture Finds On Etsy

January 24, 2019

My other passion, besides creating skin care products, is decorating. And it's funny how tastes can change through the years. I'm really starting to get into modern, industrial, retro, and other styles of decorating. I enjoy 'window shopping' for furniture on the internet and was perusing Etsy recently and found these lovely, unique finds.

Running a skin care business takes a lot of energy, so to get my day started right I drink this delicious and nutritious breakfast smoothie that my husband and I have been making for years. I thought I would share the recipe with you, but feel free to change it up to include whatever fruits and vegetables you like. (Shhhh, don't tell my husband but I've even sneaked squash into it.)

DIY Update A Brass Light Strip Fixture

January 15, 2019

Where you perform your skin care routine is just as important as your skin care routine itself. So I decided to see if I could do something to the outdated Hollywood-style brass light strip fixture. It turned out to be so incredibly easy, I wish I'd done it a long time ago.

I've included detailed instructions below. If you try this project, or something similar, I'd love to hear about your experience. Be sure to leave me a comment and let me know.
