Shopping small has a significant impact on the economy and plays a vital role in building our communities. We love to support small local businesses on Small Business Saturday (November 28th). Because we are an artisan gifting business specializing in curated gift baskets, boxes, and gifts, we intentionally support small businesses throughout the year. To help you shop small this year, I’ve put together a list of five small (local) businesses that I love and recommend to you. They are worth checking out and supporting during the holidays or any time of the year.
Rachel Roe Art
Rachel Roe is a fantastic artist, designer, and illustrator. She creates the most impressive fine art and graphics that display breathtaking florals and landscapes in her quaint, cozy backyard studio. A few of her designs are available through Minted.com and would be perfect as gifts. Visit Them
Wrapped & Written
I just recently met Leah and immediately fell in love with her beautiful work. Leah creates hand-lettering on surfaces like wood, glass, canvas, paper, and many others. Her attention to detail and overall presentation when you receive your order is so beautiful. Visit Them.
The Caramel House
Janet Shulman knows her way around her delicious caramel, and we can’t get enough of it! From popcorn to cookies and with over 13 different caramel flavors, you will find something you’re going to enjoy. Visit Them.
Rachel Sarino is the owner of this delicious company. I’ve never visited Rachel without coming away with one of her delicious cake pops. There isn’t a shortage of treats when you step into her quaint shop in St. Charles. You have the choice of deep-dish cookie cakes and chocolate-covered Oreos, to any shape cake pop you can imagine. Visit Them.
Shannon Patton is the owner of this sweet little company, but there’s nothing little about the taste of her delicious cookies. This mompreneur has proven that she knows her way around a sugar cookie. I first tasted her work at a wedding where her cookies were the thank you gift. I was taken away by the detail and then the taste…heaven! Her cookie kits are so much fun and make great gifts. Visit Them.
