The Ultimate Handmade Holiday Gift Guide - Gifts for Her

2020 has been.... well.... weird....

As a small business owner, I know how hard it is for small shops to thrive. Lately, I'm on a one woman mission to shop small. I am proud to say that I am almost done Christmas shopping and all of my purchases have been from small, local, independent businesses. 

In this blog post, I am sharing with you some of my favorite women owned small businesses.

Shop small. Shop local. Shop online. Stay safe.
