It’s no secret that businesses across all sectors and industries are experiencing a major hit right now. This couldn’t be truer than for small shops. They need us now more than ever.
Below is a list of a few small shops I like to support. You can check them out and see if they’re offering anything you might need right now. I’m finding that small purchases right now are offering a small boost in my mood. I get to anticipate the arrival of a gift and support a small biz. It’s a win-win.
Please keep in mind that these shops might not have a full stock of inventory and their delivery times may be affected by the crisis.
NW Bulk Market
This is my favorite online farmers market. They have so many clean and eco-conscious plus an entire bulk pantry. Here are a few of my go-to items from their shops:
My absolute fave Etsy shop for little girl clothes. All handmade with the cutest prints. She’s a young mama herself and I love supporting her.
Cupcakes and Cashmere
I have never purchased anything from this shop, but I follow their CEO, Emily Schulman on IG and I love her! She shared that they were running a sale during the COVID-19 crisis of 20% OFF the entire site and with each purchase they’ll be donating 20% to crisis relief efforts. So, I’m using that as an excuse to shop small, support female-owned biz, and give back.
I’m sure you have heard of this brilliant hair company already. I have a few friends who sell it and, honestly, I swear by the stuff now. My hair looks so great! And I can finally grow it out again and it’s making me feel more like myself. The products are all super clean and I know every purchase is helping me support my girlfriends. It’s a win-win all around. If you’re interested, I can connect you with some of my friends who sell. Below are some of the products I swear by.
