They agreed that there isn’t enough time in a day to share all of the small businesses that are on their radar, but here are a few:

House Of Medicinals: Owners Jill and Steve have just become “Mom & Pop” to a beautiful baby girl so they really fit the mold of the day’s celebration!

Art Of Dough: This small business is woman owned and quarantine conceived. Meagan Dillard is a mamma to 3 young boys and needed a way to keep the kiddos busy during the start of the pandemic.
She developed a non toxic- food grade, scented dough and taught herself to use a 3-D printer to make bio-degradable (non plastic) cookie cutters. She then developed really cute, themed boxes that are now sold online and are perfect for activity time, a birthday gift or a special treat. For more information or to place an order go to

Antonelli’s Cheese Shop: Kendall and John Antonelli are the owners of Antonelli’s, an incredible cheese shop that hosts classes and events to get people educated on all things cheese! They are always giving back to the community with their “do good, eat good” motto and they’re always looking for new partners to support local business.
