There are many positives to shopping locally and from small businesses during the festive season. Not only is it a more sustainable and ethical way to shop but it’s also a more meaningful experience. It’s true what they say, “when you buy from a small business, an actual person does a little happy dance!” – we’ve seen it from our local suppliers!
Here at BA i360, we are passionate about supporting local makers, which is why our beachside gift shop specialises in stocking their products. We’re incredibly lucky that Sussex is home to an abundance of wonderfully unique small businesses, artists, and makers whose fabulous products make perfect Christmas gifts.
