LUCKY BREAK’S 2019 HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE


“Shop small” is more than a catchy slogan. When you choose to spend your holiday dollars with a small business, you empower people, families, and communities in ways that Amazon or Target can’t touch. Here’s how… • You create more local job opportunities. Seventy-seven million Americans are employed by small business. That’s 2 out of every 3 private sector jobs in the United States. According to the SBA, small businesses have created 66% of all new jobs since 1995. Every $10million of spending at a local company creates 57 jobs while that same spending at Amazon creates just 14 jobs. • You foster a more sustainable economy. According to the SBA, big businesses have eliminated 4 million jobs since 1990, while small businesses added 8 million jobs within that same time period. Small businesses are more likely to be peopleoriented, more likely to be community-oriented, and more likely to support local causes. • You support the creation of greater diversity. When you spend money with local, independent businesses, those businesses tend to hire people who represent the demographics of the surrounding community, including historically underserved populations. And it’s not just diversity of people, but a diversity of product, too. Local shops are more likely to carry a varied selection, and local artisans create goods that represent their culture. • You build a stronger community. A series of studies by the research firm Civic Economics found that 48 percent of purchases at local independent businesses go right back into the community, compared to less than 14 percent of sales made at chain stores. Supporting small businesses means that the community you call home receives the tax benefits, providing a deeper well of funds for spending on public services like education, libraries, fire protection, road and park improvements. • You enjoy better customer service. Small businesses deliver more personable, hands-on, and memorable customer service. They take pride in serving their people and deeply desire to connect with you. • You make a positive impact in the lives of others. When you shop small, you create a meaningful difference in the lives of someone whose name you actually know. And they know you, too. As a small business owner for the last 16 years, I can scan a list of customers and tell you which names appear frequently. They’re not order numbers to me, they’re my community of support. For each small business that I serve, your support unlocks countless opportunities. Another child can access music lessons. Another teenager can attend college. Another adult can get much-needed healthcare. Another family isn’t at the whim of a corporate giant. On the following pages, you’ll discover hundreds of unique offerings from some of the favorite small businesses I have the privilege of working alongside. Whether I’ve helped them nail down their pricing strategy, or get their work into more shops, or dig deeper into their brand to better communicate the value they deliver, I’m honored to help amplify their voices. This holiday, I invite you to shop small… not just on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, but all season long. And then carry that good energy with you right into 2020 and shop small all year long. In doing so, you support the American dream of independence. You create vibrant, sustainable communities, and that’s the best gift of all.

Wishing you joy and peace this season,

Lela Rain Barker & Team Lucky Break

Organic cocoa butter and beeswax give it staying power, while organic avocado and argan oils penetrate deeply to help lips stay in healthy, smiling condition.
