Welcome to the first Doctorette Small Business Spotlight!
Supporting small businesses is a passion area of mine – and hopefully yours too. They are invaluable in the creation of diversity in the workplace, keeping more money in our communities, and serving as a cultural representation of our cities.
In a new series on The Doctorette, at the beginning of each month, I will be highlighting a favorite small business.
I hope that by sharing my passion for small business with you that we can help support, entrepreneurs like, Margaret Hennessey, together.
I was first introduced to Margaret Hennessey from my lovely friend, Jessica Fowler (@threeregionnc / @coppercreatives). She gave me her Zip Clutch as a wedding gift. We’ve been inseparable ever since – and by “we” – I mean, me, and my clutch.
By sheer happenstance, I was at an event at The Durham Hotel a few months ago, when this lovely woman walks over to our table and says, “I know that bag!”.
Soon after, I visited Margaret’s brick and mortar in Durham and was stuck by both the craftsmanship of her bags, and her attention to detail.
A little bit about the lady herself:
…so if that isn’t reason enough to enter this amazing giveaway to win one of my favorite designs, in my favorite color, then I don’t know what is!
Here’s how you enter:
And that’s it! Two steps, and you’re entered.
I know that signing up for an email list can sometimes feel like the kiss of death. However, The Doctorette & Margaret Hennessey will not spam you, annoy you, or share your contact information with anyone, ever – because, that’s just rude.
Margaret was also kind enough offer all Doctorette readers a 10% discount off any order between now and February 10th with promo code “DOCTORETTE”.
If you want to pay a visit to Margaret and see some of her pieces in person, she’ll be at Father & Son’s in downtown Raleigh, tonight, February 1st from 6:00-9:00 p.m. for a First Friday Valentine’s shopping event.
I’ll be stopping by and hope to see all of you (bundled up) out and about for First Friday!
This post was not sponsored by Margaret Hennessey – I just like her that much.
