Small Business Saturday: Emerging Thoughts

I have a Locals Only section, and as much as I love my community to support, there’s also online shops from friends and family. Lauren runs a clothing site, Emerging Thoughts. The past year I've researched on how to be a better consumer, and what companies to support. Emerging Thoughts is an American company carrying indie designers, mostly American-made and designed. Lauren is one of the easiest women to work with when it comes to business (and just easy to talk to all around). I was also featured on their blog on why small business at the end is really the biggest business you can support. My inner entomologist is loving their Bumblebee Hair pins.

Small Business Saturday: Danny Brito

I have a Locals Only section, and as much as I love my community to support, there’s also online shops from friends and family. Danny Brito has has been mentioned so many times on this blog, I'm surprised I didn't make an honorary category for him yet. I have a few prints from Danny Brito (along with his book) and after watching him grow as an artist and online friend over the past couple years (which is like a decade in internet speak), his business is one that will always have my support. I recently purchased a Margot Tenenbaum clutch and I love it. Not only does it have one of my favorite prints from Danny, but it's well made and organizes what I need.

Since my phone case is equally cute, I should mention it's from Mandy Bryant.

Small Business Saturday: Tumbleweeds Hand Craft

I have a Locals Only section, and as much as I love my community to support, there's also online shops from friends and family. One of them is Tumbleweeds Hand Craft. I ordered a couple pair of glasses, and got a jar of lavender marshmallows from Beca. I've worked with her on Gadchick, she was a contributor for our photography issue, in case her name sounds familiar. The ones I liked best from her glasses were the round pair. glasses
