A Celebration of Small Businesses

A Celebration of Small Businesses

At Outer, we remember firsthand the joys (and headaches) of running a small business. After all, we only launched last year. And with a challenging year for the world coming to a close, it’s more important now than ever to support the entrepreneurs who are building something from the ground up.

That’s why we’re thrilled to feature a dozen-plus of our own Neighborhood Showroom Hosts from across the country who are also small business owners for this year’s Small Business Saturday. With services ranging from design to crafts to real estate and more, we’re proud to call each of these entrepreneurs part of the Outer family.

Read through to learn more about each entrepreneur in their own words, and pick up a few special offers just for Outer fans along the way.
