Hey there Friends! This year certainly is winding down FAST! Thank goodness right! This has been a year that no one could have predicted. That is why I wanted to provide a few suggestions on where to shop small business this holiday season.
As the holiday season gets into full swing, I wanted to provide you with a few ideas for shopping at small businesses to fulfill your holiday gift giving needs. You may not be local to me, & that’s OK. A few of my shop small business suggestions can ship their items. My suggestions might also spark an idea for you to search out a local small business in your area. Shopping & supporting the small businesses in your area is vital this year.
Here are a few of my favorite places to shop & support small business:
Sera Blanket is definitely a top choice! Now, I personally have a Sera Scarf, Let me just say this is AH-Mazing! If you are someone that spends long hours in front of a computer or at a desk, you need this in your life, STAT! This is good for anyone that has upper back & neck tension. The weight from the 5 pound Sera Scarf helps to counteract all the tension. I use this often when I have marathon editing sessions. L-O-V-E it! This is also good for anyone that you have to buy a gift that does needlework, knitting, crocheting, or scrapbook. Also, if you know someone in that suffers from restless leg syndrome, autism, sleep disorders, or ADHA, a Sera Blanket or Sera Scarf could be extremely helpful & comforting to them.

The Craft Factory What can I say about this business other than I Love it! The Craft Factory is a sign making studio in Mount Joy, PA. The possibilities are endless at this small business! The shop owner, Karen, is an excellent guide to help you along your path while creating your sign. Karen will assist you in thinking through colors, paper pattern choices, & design options. A handmade sign makes a GREAT gift! What is really cool is that these are gifts that are from the heart & not a mass produced gift that can find just anywhere. You don’t have to be crafty either to make a sign at The Craft Factory. It’s easy peasy! This makes for a fun experience gift, a girl’s night out, bachelorette part, or a mom & daughter experience. Time spent creating memories at The Craft Factory Studio will be time well spent.

Francie Faces Skincare Studio Another small business that I absolutely love is Francie Faces Skincare Studio which happens to be in Lititz. Fran is such a delight! She has a lovely studio space right in the heart of Lititz. When you are in Fran’s treatment room, she really takes care of you. Fran listens to your concerns & is experienced to know how to create the perfect customized treatment for you. you will leave feeling rejuvenated, relaxed, & pampered. A few services that Fran offers are facials- signature, acne, hydrating, anti-aging, & deluxe facial. She also offers LED light therapy, eye peels, & waxing. You won’t be disappointed with a facial from Fran at Francie Faces Skincare Studio .

Girl Crush Co.– Let me tell you about this fabulous small business! Girl Crush Co. makes the most delectable soaps! They are absolutely beautiful artisan soaps. They have other products that are fabulous as well. I personally recommend the Cashmere Butter Mousse. Your hands will thank you this winter. I put this on my hands at night before bed & wake up with rejuvenated hands. It’s a wonderful product. The other awesome aspect of Girl Crush Co. is that the company’s profits are used to mentor, educate, & employ Lancaster County at-risk single mothers in a program called Second Grace(from Girl Crush Co. website). How amazing is that! There are several ways to view their products. If you head over to the events page on Girl Crush Co. you can see all the places they will be or schedule a time to stop out to the soap barn.
