Do you get that warm and fuzzy feeling when you hit “add to cart” on a small business’s website? Same!! (And yep, I get that feeling too when I’m shopping in store supporting my local peeps!) Today I wanted to share a few small businesses that I’m excited to shop this fall! They’ve got some great fall-inspired products andddd if you’re already thinking about Christmas gifts… ha! I know, I know, it’s still too early for that!! Keep scrolling to check out 5 small businesses to support this fall!
I would be lying if I said I wasn’t wearing my Paul Landry “New England” crewneck as I type this. It’s SO dang soft!! While I haven’t had the chance to meet Paul in real life yet, I hope that day comes sooner rather than later! He’s a fellow die-hard New Englander like myself and based on that fact alone, I’m sure we’ll be fast friends. I recently modeled his apparel & accessories on my trip up to the Finger Lakes, I’ll share some of the pics below so make sure you keep on scrolling!
For all my fellow fall birthdays, this cable knit sweater gift wrap is just the cutest!! Sara Fitz is such a kind and awesome human. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know her a little bit through the internet, which is so cool! I love everything her online shop has to offer, so make sure you poke around (these notepads make my to-do lists a little more fun!).
I don’t know too much about Agnes Baddoo, and I won’t pretend to. What I do know is that her natural cow “Sac 1” leather tote has been bookmarked on my browser for the past 6 months! This bag is stunning and while I absolutely don’t need anymore tote bags at the moment (I already have trouble organizing all the ones I have), I hope one day it will grace my closet with its presence. For all my fellow admires of fine handbags, I just had to share this brand with you!
Jen is another kind-soul creative I have the pleasure of knowing! I absolutely love her artwork, much of which is Nantucket inspired! This personalized fall watercolor stationery would make the perfect gift for a friend, family member, or co-worker! And of course you should probably treat yourself to a set while you’re at it! Plus, now more than every happy mail is a great way to connect with people we haven’t seen in a while sooo I’m calling this a win/win!
This Boston-based company is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to shop for jewelry. To be completely honest, I always struggled with finding bracelets I enjoyed wearing… that was UNTIL I came across Sailormade. I love wearing my Sailormade bracelet stack so much I don’t want to take it off! Plus, Sailormade bracelets do WAY more than just look pretty!
Right now I’m currently wearing these UV awareness beaded bracelets (here & here). The beads are UV sensitive and will change colors when out in the sun. It’s so cool that my bracelets “ray-mind” me to reapply sunscreen & get into the shade! I’m also loving this rose gold Brummel bracelet & these 2 cable bracelets: one // two.
P.S. I’ve got a great giveaway going live on Instagram next week featuring Paul Landry and Sailormade! Make sure you enter on my feed for a chance to win their goods!
