Community Threads: Weaving Together the Independent Business Community

Yesterday marked a important milestone in my treatment for Breast Cancer — my final chemotherapy session. As I sat in the chair, undergoing treatment, something extraordinary was unfolding elsewhere. Kim, the talented soul behind @shealsomakesstamps, was diligently working on a MEGA stamp for our upcoming venture. The anticipation was palpable; every update she sent filled me with excitement.

In that moment, amidst the challenges of my day, I couldn't help but reflect on the profound connection I have with independent businesses. It's more than just transactions; it's about communication, community, and care. Kim's thoughtful gesture of sharing carving updates wasn't just about the stamp; it was a reminder of the genuine support that permeates through the independent business world.

Independent businesses like Kim's embody a spirit of empathy and understanding. They recognise that behind every purchase is a person with a story, a journey, and sometimes, a struggle. Kim didn't have to pause her work to send me those updates, but she did. She understood that amidst the uncertainty of my day, thinking about our new venture brought me joy. It's this kind of heartfelt connection that sets independent businesses apart.

To Kim I owe a debt of gratitude not only for the incredible stamp but for being a beacon of support behind the scenes. Kim's unwavering enthusiasm and being an excellent sounding board for some of my more wild ideas has been a driving force in propelling our venture forward. Her support isn't just appreciated; it's invaluable.

As we gear up for the launch of our new venture next Friday, I'm filled with anticipation. It's a momentous occasion, one that symbolises 10 years of planning and new beginnings for Florrie. The process and planning hasn't been easy, but with the support of individuals like Kim, it's been made infinitely brighter and fun.

I invite you to join us on this new venture by signing up for the Florrie newsletter. Be the first to receive updates and exclusive offers as we embark on this exciting new chapter.

@shealsomakesstamps isn't just about hand carved stamps; it's a testament to creativity, craftsmanship, and community. If you're in the market for a business logo stamp or even some hand-stamped goodies, I encourage you to explore Kim's pages. Her talent extends beyond stamps; it's a reflection of the passion and dedication that fuels independent businesses.

Until next time!
