Have you heard of Just a Card?
They are a fabulous group of people who help make thousands of small businesses more visible to the buying public by their huge and tireless efforts on social media. Here at Dragon Art Glass I’ve been a supporter ever since their campaign was in its infancy. Together we are bigger, together we are better. Just a Card; Just a Gift, even Just a Bead – Just a Card highlight the fact that for a small business every sale counts, and every sale matters. Go and take a look on their website, and remember to consider small businesses for your purchases.
