Shop Small Business Guide!

Happy Small Business Saturday!

Today I wanted to share some of my favorite small businesses for you to checkout and shop from. Supporting small businesses can make such an impact in people's lives. When you shop small business you contribute to their local community, their family, and empower them to hire and continue to innovate. Whether you're shopping for holiday gifts or just looking to shop some new small businesses- we've got you covered! We've notated which businesses are Black owned, Women Owned, Veteran Owned and where they are based out of at the bottom of each business description. All of these brands are either black owned, female owned, cruelty free, or give back to a cause. We've sorted them by 3 categories: Black Female Owned, Female Owned, and Subscription Boxes! We hope you enjoy this shopping guide!
