I’m a huge advocate of shopping small when possible, every day, but especially during Small Business Saturday. If you’re not familiar with it, Small Business Saturday is an initiative by American Express, which has taken on a life of its own.
Every year, I try to highlight a few of my favorite Etsy shops and the women behind them. One of my favorite parts about Small Business Saturday is reminding everyone that shopping small can mean online, supporting Etsy shop owners who work hard at creating high quality, handcrafted goods with love. (If you’re a frugal shopper like me, I’d like to point out that Ebates now provides cashback for Etsy purchases as well. Right now, you can get 6% cashback on your Etsy purchases)
On to the shops:
Jenn is one of my oldest friends I met through blogging. She and I’ve had created some pretty epic memories, so when she launched a new Etsy shop with Erica, I knew it would be pretty fantastic. Combining their love of woodcutting, anatomy, all things nerdy, and creating, there’s no doubt in my mind you’ll fall in love with at least one or five things in their shop.
Lucky for you, they’ve also got a Small Business Saturday going on. Use coupon code SBSP3W17 for 10% off any jewelry or keychain.
I’ve followed Michelle’s journey since the days Etsy was just a hobby and she was working full-time. I’ve watched her evolve as a solopreneur and I’ve never been more proud of a friend’s success. If you love personalized metal jewelry, then you will love her stuff. If you’ve seen any pictures of me or have met me in person, 95% of the jewelry I own/wear comes from her shop.
Bonus: Everything in her shop is 20% off right now, with free shipping on orders over $75. What are you waiting for? Go get some!
I think we can all agree that we all need a little self-care these days. Lucky for us, there are people like my friend Emily who are creating amazing products to help you treat yourself! Bath bombs and body oils, galore. Those big names have nothing on my girl’s handmade creations.
Of course there’s a sale happening! Go to her shop page to find out the details.
If you love having a variety of options for your computer background, your phone, or awesome posters around your home, well, you’ve come to the right place. My friend Mandy’s new shop is full of fun digital download prints & posters for every room in your home.
Reminder: Go sign up for Ebates if you haven’t already to get even more cashback while supporting small businesses this holiday season!
