Let’s Shop Small

I know Christmas is right around the corner, and many are still scrambling to get gifts or if you’re anything like me, you’ve yet to even start. Thank goodness for rapid shipping, right? Anyway, I’ve been a huge advocate of shopping small this year, and I put a post on Instagram asking for my followers to post their favorite shop small companies. I wanted to share the responses here, as these are places that can be shopped all year round! Shopping small has always been something I like to do, not only because you’re helping to fund an individuals dream instead of a large corporation, but also because you tend to find more unique one-of-a-kind items. It’s also a way to encourage financial growth within your own communities. I love finding new boutiques and brands so this post will go far beyond Christmas. I’s never too late to add, so if you know any shop small entities please let us know so we can grow this list! Currently featuring black and woman owned businesses of fashion (vintage and contemporary), mens style, beauty products, home products, desserts, and other Style Stamped goodies in between. Check them out! Leave comments, share this post, show support, and let’s grow this list.
