2019 Shop Small Holiday Guide

I started my little business back in the fall of 2012. I had person after person telling me to “go for it” and supporting me through making a purchase or sharing about my business to a friend, a coworker or family member.


Since then, I’ve had the awesome privilege of becoming part of a thriving community of super talented artisans in the Milwaukee area.

I’m humbled to be included in their ranks at local makers markets and events. Because I understand first hand, the value of sharing a local artist's work with others, I want to share a few of my favorites with you today.


With the temperatures dropping and snow covering most of the Midwest at this point, I figured you might be ready to start a little holiday shopping, or maybe you cope with the cold weather with a little retail therapy!


So here’s a list of my favorites for you to check out:



Jewelry:

I honestly don’t wear too much of anyone else’s since I make my own… BUT I really love the style of these awesome artists:
