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

and if your budget will stretch to it, how about this stunning chair for Daddy to relax and read the papers. Wonderful Earmes style chair from Rose and Grey

If you are a business don't forget to submit your link below so we can find you.


  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

  3. I'm new to blogging, but I'm loving it. I think this is a great idea and great products
