We love the true enterpreneural spirit – microbusinesses built on sheer will and creativity. The 13th Moon is part of xarktopia, a partnership evolving since 2010. We are still at it because of a latticework of support. To add to that, here’s our list of small-scale operations we love that you might like, too!
