Bookish Etsy Shops
It is no secret that businesses like Amazon are hurting local bookshops every single day. While the incredibly low prices are appealing, we should all try our hardest to support our local bookshops whenever we can! Cheap books usually means the author or publisher isn’t getting a good share, but going to your local bookshop can help this! Many news outlets have reported that Amazon takes a loss in profit on their book sales to sell big-ticket items. Supporting local bookshops for Small Business Saturday could make a big difference at your local bookstore!
