Small Business Saturday/Cyber Monday & Etsy Folks You Should Check Out

I love small businesses. I know many small business owners, and I just think they’re fabulous. My parents and I did our part and went and supported local small businesses and crafts people this weekend.

I’ve been looking for something for the extra bracelets and jewelry that don’t fit on my hanging jewelry holders… and this cool bowl made out of an old record was super cool and fun! Now my dresser looks less cluttered!

And now I want to share with you a few small etsy buinesses folks I’m loving at the moment… This is definitely not a full list, but just a few people I want to share with my friends. 🙂

Megan has an etsy shop with a ton of cute things. I have this watch. I’m loving the hats, and pretty much everything in her shop! She also has a blog, as well as a blog with her sisters (she’s a triplet!)

These eco friendly cat toys are awesome. I especially love these made from wool sweater scraps. I definitely want to get some of these for Charlie!

I’m actually known for drinking cold Starbucks drinks in the wintertime, even though it makes my hands freezing cold! I love these cozies, it would be the perfect thing to keep my hands warm(er). I love the best friend cozies, but there is such a variety!

I love these! Olivia started this business in college and it’s taken off. I just got mine in the mail on Friday and I have been wearing them since! She has tons of colors, and a huge variety. And the best thing is that when I take my hair down, it doesn’t leave that dent that you sometimes get from other hair ties…. and I can just put it on my wrist and wear it like a bracelet!

If you’re a pinterest addict like I am, then you probably saw these legwarmers. After these hit pinterest, Melissa, the owner of Sienna’s Closet, got so much interest that she’s had a steady stream of people going to her etsy store and facebook pages asking for them. I ordered a teal pair that I wore when we got some snow last week, and they are gorgeous as well as being cozy and warm! Your best bet is to check out her facebook page, she will keep you updated as to what she has in stock and when!

I happen to think that you cannot go wrong when you mix pearls and ribbon! Twillypop does just that! I have my eye on a few of them.

Also, I did not get paid to mention any of these lovely folks… I just like sharing good finds with others! All photos/banners belong to the shop owners!

    Shopping small business is the way to go! Also, it’s important to shop local and keep the money within your community too!
