Here are just some of the bargains you can still find while shopping independently. 

As the tradition of January sales pass we distract ourselves from the fact that the festivities have come to an end by buying things we don’t really need because they are cheaper than usual. It’s important not to forget about the smaller businesses at this time of year though. Whilst they may not to be able to offer as huge discounts as the bigger brands, they can often offer much more unique and interesting products to begin with.

Here are 7 of our favourite products we spotted in small business sales…
