Small business saturday - Posh petals

Happy Saturday, friends!

As many of you probably already know, this week we have been exploring the West Grand Neighborhood of Grand Rapids! It truly does live up to its name and we have an amazing business to prove it . . .


small business saturday - Momnumental edition

Dear busy GR moms,

I get it. 

You put everyone else in your life first, especially during the holiday season, and when it’s finally time to take care of yourself you’d rather just take a nap.  Well, at least I would.  That’s why I’m so excited to introduce you all to MOMnumental Moms and Founders, Thuy Simpson and Claudia Smith Kelly . . .


small business saturday - Fido & Stitch

I know we all remember that classic song Who Let the Dogs Out. A tale of pups and a grand adventure, right? Well, we figured out where all the dogs went: Fido & Stitch - Canine Boutique & Salon. The wonderland of all things your dog probably has on its wish list this Christmas . . .
