Well, if you’ve been privileged to live thus far, you would know, that there has been such a stigma with buying things from China, I guess there’s no getting away from it in totality but maybe this is also a time where we as a country should consider being more inventive, creative and innovative. As far as you can, support your local businesses, you are supporting someone’s dream, feeding a family, growing an empire, adding growth to a very weak and volatile economy, in turn, creating jobs and establishing people’s self worth. Besides the fact that yes, you get the odd person that want’s the work but don’t want to make the effort to return a call, keep to a promised date or quality of work or have no after sales service, there are more than enough people worth supporting, with good quality work and excellent products out there. Shop local, local is lekker!
