a quote that reads products made at a time or in small batches, are likely to last longer than anything mass
Shopping small means you are buying quality. 😍

When shopping small, you are purchasing something that will undoubtedly last far longer than its mass-produced counterpart.⁠ ⁠ Tell us about the special handmade items in your life which have stood the test of time. We'd love to hear! 👇🏻⁠
