A love note to all holiday shoppers

A love note to all holiday shoppers

It's no secret. Everyone loves a good deal, us included. However, if the good deal compromises the health or well being of another human, is it actually a good deal? This is the biggest season for retail, and YOU have the power to decide where your hard earned dollars go, and you have the power to change an industry that for so long has not been held accountable.


So when you start your holiday shopping this season, before you hit the big box stores, take a minute to check in with your favorite designers, or a local brick and mortar. Most likely you will be able to find something fun, unique, and thoughtful for everyone on your list. And, in the process you will be supporting not only a small business, but an actual person, or a family who makes it their livelihood, and I can guarantee you (from firsthand experience) your order/purchase/or just dropping in will put a huge smile on someones face.

Happy shopping!

xx,
Emily
