As the owner of a small business, Mockingbird Bay Resort, I totally appreciate the folks who choose to spend their hard-earned money here with us. So on this beautiful Thanksgiving Day, let me just say a big heartfelt THANK YOU to our awesome guests. Without you, we obviously would not be here.
I guess, I’m just trying to remind y’all this holiday season to look for a small business and spend your money there instead of somewhere else. The power of Local…and Community…and unique independent cottage industries is really cool — so instead of shopping at a giant big-box retailer or franchise chain store, think small.
Oh. And as much as I do appreciate American Express for all they’ve done to promote Small Business Saturday and bring awareness to this issue…If you’d really like to help out the little guy and small Mom and Pop shops, then don’t pay with a credit card at all. Pay with cash. That’d really help.
Thanks! …and Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
Here’s a photo taken yesterday of just one of the beautiful fall trees around Mockingbird Bay Resort.
Here’s a quick update:
Nature’s canvas will be awash with autumn colors soon! Splashes of fiery red, orange, brown, gold! …May your fall scenic tours be thoroughly enjoyed as we watch the landscape of Ozark foliage turn into a mosaic of beautiful colors of autumn.
We invite you to plan a relaxing getaway for yourself and a loved one…and join us at Mockingbird Bay Resort on Norfork Lake where a cozy cabin awaits you. We’ll help you find a scenic tour to be remembered. Would you like a little tranquility in your life? …Come to Mockingbird Bay!
