Independents Day - Fathers Day

Be an individual, shop Independents

Here we are again on the 29th of the month.   The date each month we celebrate all Independent businesses.  As #IndependentsDay falls a little too late for retailers to send out in time for all things Queens Diamond Jubilee, I thought it might be a good idea to support all those hard working businesses who sell items suitable for celebrating Fathers Day on the Sunday June 17th .


Any type of independent business or even if you have a favourite one you love to support you can join in.

If you have a blog, please write a short post mentioning and linking to three or so independent businesses you follow, buy from or just plain admire. You can of course link to your own business if you want to. Its all about building up the traffic to help people find our businesses.

Leave a comment below with a link to your blog so we can all pop over and take a look. It would be really great if you would link back to this post.


Tweet about the independent businesses you are supporting and mentioning the hashtag #IndependentsDay


Link or share this or your own post on your Facebook page and encourage others to share


Link up your business below

You don't have to be an independent business to get involved or have a blog. Comments, tweets and Facebook mentions will all help enormously.

Here are my selection for this month

Wonderful personalised gifts for the whole family from Moobaacluck

Stylish and unique word art from Wall envy Art

Is the daddy in your life a fisherman ?  How about amazing mosaic wall art from Just Mosaics

  1. Fab post and some lovely products, here is ours for this month http://babyduckshop.wordpress.com/2012/05/29/independents-day-29th-may/

    1. Thank you so much for linking up, will pop over and take a peak xx

  2. Fabulous idea! I would love to get involved if I can. I like your suggestion for writing a blog post about other independents, so I'm going to plan that very soon.

    1. Thank you Shona, that would be wonderful. I think its really important that we show support for each other. It can be a really lonely and insecure time when you run your own business xx

  6. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic
    but I had to tell someone!

  7. Gday! My name is Ulrike and I personally just desired to say your
    website rocks! It's amusing due to the fact I use to have a web site that almost had an identical web address: http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=5502126299987574566&postID=1715749975643855493 mine was only a few letters different. Nonetheless, I'm a big admirer of your blog site and if you at any time want a guest post please make sure
    to email me at: bradyvelazquez@googlemail.com. I love
