Prime Day is here; supporting small businesses in Canada is easier than ever. When the Amazon team contacted us last year, I was thrilled to hear they were putting together a feature for artisans from coast-to-coast. Small businesses are the heart of so many Canadian towns; seeing them represented on a platform like Amazon is incredible.
I love Prime Day because it kind of feels like Black Friday in July. My husband and I make our lists of what we want to find. Then the day of, we grab our laptops and a bottle of wine and start the hunt. We make it a whole thing. I do have to admit; it definitely confirms adult status when this is what we get excited over.
