Small Business Saturday

In all the shopping frenzy, I wanted to take the time to share some of my favorite small businesses. As a women-owned, women-led small business, we know it’s important to share the love! I love identifying other small companies that do a great job so this list has been prepared for awhile! Here are some of our favorite small businesses to support this Small Business Saturday. A lot of them have great deals going on (including us! You can shop our small shop over here.)

1. March wrapping paper
2. and March ribbon (this is what I’m using this year, in addition to my own wrapping paper here)
3. Chatbooks is a locally owned company that does subscription photo albums. I love mine!
4. Elizabeth Graeber is one of our Print Shop artists who has lots of products in her own shop. I love this floral print tote!
5. Suzy Ultman is an artist featured in the Picture Hope Coloring Book. She has the most whimsical shop like these nesting dolls.
6. Marie Clare is a new recent love of mine (remember her interview here?!). She has lovely designs over here.
7. Justina Blakeney of Jungalow is a FORCE! Love her holiday collection this year. You can also read an interview about her here.
8. Cat Seto is the artist behind our Michelle print. She has a company called Ferme a Papier and I love this planner! You can read more about her here.
9. Lisa Congdon is everyone’s favorite artist. She’s so prolific and authentic. She has an awesome range of her own products like this puzzle. We are also lucky to have two exclusive prints in our shop! Read more about her here. Watch our Craft and Chat here.
10. I’m a huge My Little Belleville fan. I have been since the beginning! Michelle has been making these awesome jumpsuits and more! We’ve been collaborating for years!
11. Alejandra García y Gutiérrez is a Mexican artist whose work I adore. Her colorful work is in our shop and she also sells her own preserves here.
12. Jen Hewett is a master printmaker who has a range of products AND classes. I think it would be fun to gift a printmaking class! She’s also an artist in our Picture Hope coloring book.
13. Gathre is a Utah owned company that sells mats. I have a few of them and love them! This USA map is illustrated by my good friend Merrilee Liddiard and acts as artwork too!
14. Tubby Todd is a children’s soap company that I swear by. I love this new travel set. I’ll be using it for my babes when we go to Denmark soon!
