With bridal shower and wedding season upon us, I thought it would be fun to share some favorite shops I have found in the last months. Instagram has not only provided inspiration, but an intro to so many amazing small shops offering unique home decor. I have grown to love so many, and will take time to share them with you as this journey continues. I have purchased items from most of these shops, so I can attest to their undeniable craftsmanship and durability. No doubt, registries come in handy, but in case you want to give something unexpected, the bride and/or groom will be delighted when given something handmade and/or unique. Don’t let me stop at weddings… These shops listed provide the perfect gifts for birthdays, etc. and just plain YOU! Supporting small shops is a way to encourage those trying to make a difference. I believe word of mouth is the best advertising.
Above the Grain – Etsy – White distressed farmhouse candlesticks
I LOVE these, I have 2 and move them all over the house, They are so fun to style.
Any bride would love these as gifts or to use for table decor.
Bows and Burlap – Etsy – Pillow Covers and inserts
Well, no doubt you all know how much I LOVE throw pillows by now and this shop has it all!!
I have given these pillow covers and inserts as gifts and ordered several for myself and they are made with impeccable craftsmanship. Most common size is 20 x 20, but there are several to choose from and you will get lost in her design options. A MUST have.
Rustic Chicks Boutique – Etsy – Rustic and farmhouse inspired signs and home decor
Another shop with so many options to choose from, I love this sign, and would be a perfect wedding gift.
Sweet Mint Handmade Goods – Etsy – Hand stamped Vintage Flatware
Seriously, how cute is this?! You can custom order too 🙂
Driftwood – Decor – Unique home decor and furnishings
I cannot say enough about this shop and the shop owner. She has the most unique home decor!! Not to mention her candles are scrumptious! So many items to choose from.
Nested Sanctuary – Mother/Daughter owned home decor boutique with unique finds for every budget. Yet again, so much to choose from and excellent service.
Antique Candle Works – www.antiquecandleworks.com Not only are their scents amazing, they come in decorative jars! You’ll love choosing from their selection.
These are just a few of the shops I have grown to love over the last several months and wanted to share them with you all.
I have been so busy with projects around home. Painting, painting, and more painting.. I promised I would keep you updated with progress here, and I will be back next week to share more inspiration in my office space. It’s definitely being chick-a-fied!!
