Small Shop Roundup

We get the privilege of working with so many small shops. These all have hard working moms behind them who are up until the wee hours of the morning sewing their fingers off to provide for their family and provide you and me with amazing handmade pieces! I wanted to share some our favorite shops with you so that you can pick special pieces for the special people in your lives. And maybe the shop below is already closed for Christmas or the holidays, because they need family time too…so that just means buy something for a friend or family member’s birthday, anniversary, or  “just because.”

The one thing I love about small shopping is that I know the person who made the piece that I bought. It’s not being made in a giant factory somewhere or by a slave overseas. It’s cognitive buying.I could go on a rant about knowing who you “employ” to make your clothing, but I’ll save that for another day. Just know that when you shop small, you make a big difference instead of just growing the pockets of some CEO. That doesn’t mean I do it for all my purchases. I simply can’t. But I do what I can.

Okay…here goes! The list of some of my favorites:

So, you may have noticed that it’s a lot of little girl shops! I confess, I love shopping for Hallen (and the new one on the way)! But, there are some women’s things in there as well. Some shops even make mommy and me pieces! Other shops from the small shop world community that I love for me and others are:

Blanqi

Pink Blush Maternity (they sell non maternity clothes as well!)

Dazi

BB Styled Boutique

Fawn Design

Cents of Style

Zoo Shoo

***On the list right above, not all are handmade, but are still small shops.
