More than ever, local and smaller mom+pop businesses need our support! All of the sales everywhere are still going on, but I wanted to share some small businesses I’ve recently found and fallen in love with. Don’t worry, it’s not all fashion…but there is some of that too 🙂 Whether you’re all about the home decor, ready to get out and travel, or are all into beauty or wellness, I’ve got you! Here are some of my favorites:

  1. Na Nin: all-in-one store, where you’ll want everything (not just the clothes)
  2. Yucca: new & vintage clothing and accessories, and they also donate a portion of sales to environmental initiatives
  3. Avenue: simple, wearable, seasonless clothing, accessories & housewares
  4. Ali Golden: ethical women’s fashion…and oh, so cute!
