Hey y’all! I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving. I’ve been a bit incognito this week, but I wanted to throw out this blog post in time for Small Business Saturday. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’m always advocating for small business and encouraging others to shop small when possible. I come from a family of small business owners, and I guess I would consider my blog a small business as well. Needless to say, it’s very important to me to support!
Today I want to share with you just some of my favorite small businesses that y’all should consider supporting this holiday season!
Of course, I had to plug my own sister! ICYMI, I also announced a collaboration with her on a Christmas ornament. It’s super cute and I’m obsessed with it y’all. My sister has tons of fun stuff for everyone in the family as well as different events (wedding, holiday, etc), plus many of her items are customizable. She’s currently having 20% off her site with code SHOPSMALL20. If you’re shopping after 12/2, use code JAYME for FREE SHIPPING on orders over $15!
Y’all already know how much I love Caloosa WaterWear! They really do have the cutest things, plus Ray and Rebecca are the sweetest people you’ll ever meet. Y’all can use code JAYME20 for 20% off your entire purchase, and be sure to select FREE standard shipping at check out. They have apparel and stocking stuffers that are great for the entire family! Make sure to check out my holiday lookbook with them.
Again, I plug Cora’s Den constantly, but I really do love their jewelry and it’s super affordable. I believe she’s running a variety of sales all weekend long, so don’t miss out! She has great necklaces and earrings, plus everything is customizable. Get something for yourself, a friend, and even little ones!
I found The Loveliest on Instagram a few months ago and was so excited to visit the store in person while home in Pittsburgh. If you’re ever in the Pittsburgh area you need to visit! It’s super cute, plus they have a little coffee shop in the boutique as well. It’s super Instagram-worthy, too… check out my Instagram post I shot there. They also have tons of great clothing pieces available online.
There are so many small businesses out there, so find some in your area or online and support them, even if you’re just liking/sharing their pieces on social media! Also, take locally owned restaurants and other businesses into consideration this holiday season, and every day! Help your local families achieve their dreams.
One more reminder – if you’re shopping online at chain stores this holiday season, reach out to your favorite blogger/influencer! They may have an affiliate link you can use, which will pay them (pennies to the dollar) at no extra cost to you. Just a small way you can support someone like me 🙂 Be sure to check out my previous gift guides and fashion posts for the season, which are full of affiliate links you may want to use for stores like Amazon, Lilly, Target, and more! The affiliate link you use does not need to be to the specific item you’re purchasing for us to get credit, you just need to click a link to the website as a whole.
I hope y’all enjoyed this little post!
