What a week it has been y’all! Mostly everyone’s lives and plans have been turned on their head. It is a challenging time and I want y’all to know I am praying for YOU! That’s right, you! Everyone is having a different situation that they’re used to right now in one way or another. Grant and myself are blessed to be people who do work from home, besides my part-time “fun” job at a local consignment shop. Needless to say I’ve been counting my blessings lately because some are not so lucky.
If you have the privilege of still having an income at this time, I encourage you to shop small. Supporting small business is nothing new here on my blog, but now more than ever it is incredibly important to remember those who don’t have a multi-million or billion dollar company to save them. I come from a family of small business owners, including my Dad and my sister who both own and operate small businesses, and it is a scary time for them.
Today I wanted to share some of my favorite small businesses and if you, like myself, have been doing some retail therapy during social distancing, these are some great small businesses to check out and support. Even if you aren’t able to financially support at this time you can support these businesses by sharing this list with your friends, giving them a follow on social media, etc. Remember, supporting small business means to keep a fridge stocked, to keep someone’s lights on, to give a young child resources, and so much more!
Yes, I did have to plug my sister! She is mostly active on her Facebook page which you can find HERE. She offers a variety of products including customs tees, personalized items for Easter, items for Disney lovers, and so much more. Pictured is one of her best-selling, customizable Easter baskets. You can order them HERE for only $12 and you can do any character or theme imaginable! Check out her website & Facebook page!
Y’all already know my love for Caloosa WaterWear. She has some great pieces out right now that you’ll love for spring and summer. I do have a discount code for her products which is JAYME20, which you can get 20% off with. However, if you’re able to at this time, please refrain from using it so this small business can get the money they deserve!
There are a few ways you can currently shop Nautical Notions; their website, their Etsy, or their Facebook Jewelry Party (ends 3/22). On Facebook their having special discounts, and even a giveaway! I personally bought some pieces for myself & my bridesmaids. Their jewelry is great quality and is super affordable!
Sailor Sailor Clothing
Sailor Sailor holds a special place in my heart for so many reasons! The owners, the Kim’s, are the kindest souls you’d ever meet. Their clothing is amazing for the spring and summer heat and is of the highest quality, plus it is made in the USA! Don’t forget to check out their sale section as well.
Dress For Cocktails
No matter what accessory you’re looking for, Dress for Cocktails has you covered! They have the most unique and fun accessories out there. I’ve been drooling over her handbags for a while now, and I think I need to take the plunge! They have interchangeable bows and so many fun prints to choose from.
Will I ever not include Coras Den in a shop round up? Coras Den is THE stop for affordable monogrammed jewelry. She has some great new pieces right now that she’s featuring on her Instagram, just DM her on IG to order those pieces!
Pretty Little Monograms
If you’re a Disney & preppy lover like me, PLM is for you! There are so many fun designs to choose from, and a lot pair beautifully with Lilly. She is now offering Sezzle, so you can pay in increments interest-free. Need a gift for an upcoming celebration? They offer gift cards as well!
Krystal Healy Photography
I wanted to throw my friend (& wedding photographer) Krystal in here! She does all sorts of photography including engagements, newborn, family, etc. But she specializes in wedding at both WDW, DLR, DCL, and in Pittsburgh! If you or someone you know is a bride/groom that needs a wedding rescheduled and needs a new photographer, don’t hesitate to reach out to Krystal!
I hope y’all enjoyed this little round up, and I hope you discovered some new small businesses to support now or in the future! I’d love for y’all to share this list with friends and family members. All of these small businesses and female owned, which is awesome as well. Don’t forget to support locals restaurants, pharmacies, and other businesses at this time as well! Together we can make it through!
