Hey babes!

Do you shop small? What I mean is do you shop in small businesses. I support many small businesses.

Here are some reasons I support small  businesses.

*Small businesses are often locally owned (giving back to my community makes me feel good) or an online shop.  These folks are entrepreneurs living their dream.

*Small businesses are all about growing their customer base so I know I will get great customer service.  They appreciate their customers and will typically offer special discounts.

*I like finding items that can’t be found in the mall or other stores.  Finding something truly unique or made to order sets me apart from following the crowd.

*Cosmetic and beauty products made in smaller batches means my product won’t spoil before I can finish using it.

*Some small businesses such as vintage clothing and thrift boutiques are popping up all over the internet.  I love them because I believe in reusing what we can and shopping these types of stores helps keep at least a wee bit of fabrics from being tossed into  landfills.

So that being said where DO I shop? I frequent a few of these and a couple are on my radar.

Margarita Bloom

Regina from Margarita Bloom is just the sweetest girl you will ever meet. She represents the brand that manufactures natural beauty products such as soaps,  lotions,  bath salts,  lipsticks,  etc.  She will work with you and personalize your scent.  Go treat yourself and tell her I sent you.

Racked Vintage

My girl friend Janice is the owner/ curator of this vintage wonderland. I seriously can’t look at her shop without swooning.  She’s been in  the business for years and is a true professional.  If you dream of cupcake dresses from the 50s , look no further than Racked Vintage.

Salt Light Company

I recently discovered this shop when I was looking for an organic goat milk lotion for my face.  Oh my goodness! The cream I bought is amazing! I highly recommend giving  this family owned business a try. They produce all their body products from nature.  Jessica is very prompt and cordial and best of all this small business is centered on Christ.

PearlAndIvyHandmade

Robyn is the creative genius behind this gorgeous shop. Each hand crafted piece is truly a work of art. If you want one  of a kind jewelry,  you will certainly not be disappointed.  Wait until you see the selection!!

Hollis Eve Company

Remember this fabulous thrift  company made up of twin sisters that I recently interviewed?! See post Here

They hunt for treasures everywhere and have many platforms to shop from.  From depop to Facebook, you will get your fix of affordable wearables.

The Gilded Girl

This is a local Pittsburgh beauty boutique.  The owner is a dream.  I actually came across her via instagram and quickly started following her. I love that she provides many services such as private parties, a huge assortment of natural beauty products and perfumes,  and personal customer care.

So there are my top picks of small businesses that I choose to support.  Each one is exceeds my expectations and the entrepreneurs are all delightful women.  Please do visit them. And if you have a favorite small business you support , please share in the comments section below.

Love,

Debra
