With the holidays right around the corner, I know I have personally taken the pledge to shop as much locally as I can . Support a small business and local artists instead of paying into a big consumer franchise .
With that said I wanted to take the time to review a few local / handmade companies that I chose for the holiday season !
*rmj cozy quilts
*farm girl design
*sew ezie ... just to name a few!
There are so many excellent local artists to buy from. These are just a a few I chose so far . With these local companies alone I will be able to purchase handmade clutches , snack bags for lunch , bibs , booties , tumblers and mugs , bath items & reusable facial rounds for taking off makeup . Which also helps the environment . You can also choose to support local through weekend markets , school craft sales, and more.
Vixens Boutique alone carries a variety of handmade items from local artists .. RMJ Cozy Quilts, Sweet Soaperie , The Gearbox , etc . While there you can also help out a local boutique by purchasing from said local artists as well as ordering from Vixens! It would be like a one stop shop without the hassle of the mall! Stop into Vixens and you can leave with something for the whole family . Pinup inspired holiday dress with matching purse , shoes , toddler and child shirts ... a sweet button up for your husband . Grab a candle for a friend . Bath bomb to soak your feet ! The options are endless and how rewarding is it knowing with one stop .. you can help several different local artists! Also !!!
Don't forget .. Turner's christmas at the coliseum is yet another way to get in some holiday gift shopping and the is just around the corner !!
