It’s Small Business Week

by | May 8, 2019 | Stories | 0 comments

Support small businesses this week and every week. By doing so, you build your community, teach your children the value of small business and benefit from these entrepreneurs.  Take a moment and think before you purchase.

  • Sometimes it takes a little longer to get a cup of coffee from a local barista but you are supporting your neighbors.
  • Lost a button or need something hemmed?  Find a local seamstress. They are out there and they are great!
  • Farm to table your thing? Find a local fresh delivery produce service. You will not regret it.

As an Italian, I love local small businesses.  There I can find good conversation, wonderful Italian desserts, breads and meats. It reminds me of going ‘downtown’ with my grandmother in the early 1970’s.

My message is not meant to pontificate or lecture, but I  hope it inspires you. Chip and I both own small businesses and support other small businesses and the Chamber of Commerce in the Capital Region.

I would love to list all the small companies I support but it would be quite lengthy. Isn’t that a wonderful thing?  But, if you’d like to know where I go for certain things, I would be more than happy to tell you.  Just email me at

Happy (small and local business) shopping!

About Me

KarenHello and welcome.
I am often asked, “What is Pasta on the Floor?”
Pasta on the Floor is different for everyone. It is a recipe that tells a story and inspires them to try something new. For others, stories of family, joy, loss, and hope engage with them. This brings me a great deal of happiness. I do not take myself too seriously, so be forewarned the subject matter is open and truthful. In many ways, Pasta is a tale of life, and I think you will find familiarity and commonality as you scroll through these pages.
