We hope everyone stays warm and safe and more bad weather blows in to the East!

I have lived a long time and am convinced that God governs in the affairs of men. If a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? I move that prayer imploring the assistance of Heaven be held every morning before we proceed to business.- Benjamin Franklin

17 Oct

Did you know Small Business Saturday is November 26? Just about 6 weeks away?

We believe that small businesses add a lot to their communities, bringing excellent service, unique products and keeping local money– local!

When you spend money at your locally owned small business, three times the money stays local than when you spend at chain retailers!  That’s money for wages for locals, and then money that they in-turn spend locally.  It’s a win, win!  So, how can you support local businesses? Shop there, and recommend them to friends and family if you like their services and products.  This small business Saturday (Nov. 26) consider trying to do most of your Christmas shopping locally!

We’d love to hear about your favorite local business!  Give a shout out in the comment section below with the business name, and why you love them.

We only allow small businesses to sell our paints, and we love promoting the stores that do! To find a local store near you that sells Old Village Paints, search your zip code!
