Hi everyone! I’m back with the third and final post on the little magical village of Haworth. Without its characteristic little independent shops it wouldn’t be quite as magical, so I thought I would dedicate a blog featuring a few of them. If you do visit here, do try to support them as independent businesses need our help more than ever. Did you read my first and second posts about Haworth?

The benefits of shopping at independent businesses
-They provide a much friendlier service and value their customers alot more. They see you as a valuable customer and not just a number.
-You support them financially and by showing your love and support they get to continue the work they do. By doing this you also create jobs in the local areas.
-Items are more likely to be sustainable. They use more responsible practices and often use sustainable suppliers.
-Your more likely to find something weird and quirky because they do not follow what’s trending and order in mass amounts of items. Their items are usually more traditional, therefore the items are alot rarer.
-Your more likely to find quality items because they focus on quality and not quantity.
