Shop Small: Sales & Gifts from Small Businesses

Shamefully, sometimes it's not my first thought to shop small - but when I do remember or make the effort, I find some of my very favorite items (like earrings for myself, or art for my home) and gifts.  Etsy is one my go-tos for jewelry (especially earrings) and cute kid t-shirts.  

I was surfing their site for gift ideas, and was pleasantly surprised that many shops on Etsy are having 10-15% off (prices as marked).  So I picked my favorite items that are all on sale - you can feel extra good about shopping these sale because you are supporting small businesses!  

For Kids:


For Him:

House & Home:

Not on Etsy, but one of my very favorite shops (they happen to be in Kansas City, but they are nationally known and loved) is having a HUGE site-wide sale. Shop Ampersand Design Studio now through Monday and use code BIGTHANKS for 30% off!  Some of my favorite picks:

Another favorite small shop that is nationally loved (yet, again located in Kansas City) is Nickel & Suede!  They make the most beautiful earrings out of leather that are light as a feather. They do not weight down your earlobe like other statement earrings do. They come in 3 different sizes and several shapes + they have cuffs and other items that are also cute! 

They are offing 20% off all their earrings today on Shop Small Saturday with code SAT20, so I'm picking up my 3rd pair of earrings from this brand. ;) 

 {I'm wearing my fav pair - maroon in large, November's earrings of the month is this emerald suede, and I love all their gold earrings - including the gem shaped ones}

For the home, I have had two Happy Habitat blankets for several years, and they are still our very favorite. Not only to cuddle up with, but as a statement piece to whatever room they're in.  Another favorite local business in Kansas City, but nationally loved.  You can even find these blankets at West Elm!

Today, you can use SHOPSMALL at check out to get 20% off! These would make an amazing gift!

Other ways to shop small for gifts or yourself today:

- Shop at your local coffee shop (vs. the big brand on every corner) - pick up coffees for your friends/co-workers, grab a gift card, etc.
