December on Maui
(That’s right, it’s December already)
Support Your Local Small Businesses..
Not just this holiday season, and not just on Small Business Saturday, but everyday!
The small businesses around you contribute to your community in so many ways. Here are some of the amazing facts!
* 2 out of every 3 new jobs in the U.S. are created by small business owners! Chances are, you and your loved ones are working (or have worked) for one.
* More money stays in your community when you shop local!
– If each of us spend $100 more a year on local businesses (instead of chain stores) it would put an extra $3 million a year back into our economy! –
* When you shop at a local small business, you are supporting a dream!
Santa Figures by
Anne Taylor Vance
Puamana Santas are individually created from driftwood gathered on Puamana beach on Mauiʻs famous West Side. Each piece has a distinctive personality and is hand painted by island artist, Ann Taylor. A truly unique gift, they are all various sizes and no two are the same Post and share on instagram where you place him at home #anntaylorarts.
Ann, born and raised in the West Indies, is also well known for her petite watercolors and for her colorful and vivid silk pieces – an integration of the ancient art of batik and the delicate art of painting on silk.
