Happy Black Friday friends and fam! In lieu of sharing all the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales that are going on, I wanted to help you get a head start on Small Business Saturday! That way you can give great quality, unique, and special gifts that will help support small business owners. 🙂 Almost all of these are small businesses owners that are personal friends of mine, people I’ve had the opportunity to meet and network with, and/or products that I’ve personally tried and loved! So I promise not to lead you astray!
11 Great Places to Shop at on Small Business Saturday
You guys have probably seen a lot of Bijoux by Catherine‘s jewelry on the blog because I absolutely love it! She and I went to college together (even studied abroad together) and her business has grown so much in the last few years! It’s been awesome to see how much she’s accomplished! She makes truly beautiful, on trend, and good quality jewelry that won’t break the bank! Her whole site is BOGO 1/2 OFF with FREE SHIPPING and 10% of all sales benefit St. Jude’s.

Brian is a local Philly maker that creates awesome handmade clay pottery that includes everything from mugs and bowls to lamps and bookends. It’s all super fun and bright! He also has an Amazon Shop with pieces that are available for Prime shipping!
This one is a little more of a niche place to shop, but for all of my hometown family and friends, Camel City Goods is a great place to get some good Winston-Salem loot to give to your loved ones for the holidays! 🙂
Amber is another former classmate of mine and she makes stunning and super high quality handmade intimates! She even takes custom orders which is amazing!

5. Handmade Scarves by Christine
Christine is a dear friend of mine and she makes the most beautiful, chunky scarves I’ve ever seen! They’re like those giant chunky knit blankets but for your neck. 😛 All of her scarves are custom order so you can choose your yarn, colors, and more! Send her a DM on Instagram to inquire about prices!

Jak Snow is a great practical gift! I recently share a post on how to take care of suede shoes with Magic Spray by Jak Snow and, let me tell ya, that stuff is truly magic. If you have a person in your life that you never know what to get, try gifting them some Magic Spray. It’s perfect for this time of year when we’re all wearing suede shoes so surely they can make use of it. 🙂
Moonlight Doodle Co. is the perfect place to shop for hand lettered and personalized gifts of any sort! This sweet friend of mine makes all sorts of signs, ornaments, and more with her beautiful calligraphy! She even addressed our wedding invitations when we got married!
