Small Business Saturday Giveaway

Back in 2013 I started The Little Garden That Could. Each year I added another piece to my business. I started out with selling flowers at my Farm Stand in front of my house. The summer of 2016 I also sold at the Bruce Farmers Market.
2017 I wanted  to try to have more control over how many flowers I would need to harvest. I created my Flower Subscription Service.


This week I added two more features to my website Flower Shop.

Living Gifts
sweet succulents that I can deliver to your friend or loved one
to bring a wee bit of green to the office or home

photo cards using photos we took from our garden

 Small Business Saturday Giveaway

 Small Business Saturday is November 25th.
To celebrate I am giving away four cards from our Autumn collection, featured below.
  To enter all you have to do is leave me a comment or e mail. I know I have some readers who have trouble leaving comments on the blog. I appreciate all of my readers and customers.

The winner of the giveaway will be announced on Small Business Saturday, November 25th.

Thank You for all the support and love!
