The effects of the pandemic have touched us all, in particular, they have decimated small businesses who would normally rely on small shop fronts or local markets to sell their curated and hand-made products.
There’s no time like the present to show them your support and make your next purchase one that counts.
We’ve pulled together a list Aussie owned small businesses which offer everything from emu jerky to skin-soothing balms.
