Welcome Dayna:

Joining us on the star line is the Trend Expert for Etsy and judge on the NBC hit craft competition “Making It” we welcome Dayna Isom Johnson

Let’s go Beyond the Mic last time you joined us we talked about what to get our significant others for Christmas. This year let’s talk about the way holiday shopping has been affected by a pandemic and how that impacts gift giving this year.  Now that everyone has had the time to slow down and “get to know each other” in a less fast paced way, should we expect gift giving trends to be much more personal?

What should we consider, when gifting a hand crafted, specialized gift, especially when we may not be able to be with all of our loved ones this year?

How important will early shopping, especially online, be this year?

How has this lifestyle shift changed the way people view individually owned companies struggling now in a pandemic and do you see this heart-felt gifting style boosting boutiques and small businesses in a positive way?
