Hello!!! I’ve missed you! Thanks so much for being patient with me this spring. I am feeling refreshed and that my ducks are somewhat back in a row, so I’m back to share 5 unique small shops that will have you returning again & again! I believe in shopping small when possible, and there are oodles and oodles of talented artists out there. It has been an honor to have worked with many and I am delighted to share a few of them with you today.
The first unique small shop in this round up is sure to spark conversation 😉 Wooden letter boards have become highly popular. Madera Modern boards are special, because they mimic that of a cutting board. They make the perfect house warming, wedding, bridal shower, graduation, and birthday gifts. These breadboards are available in two stain options. You can also choose the classic board style, and it is available in two stain and two size options. I have the breadboard in hickory stain and it’s definitely a focal point in our kitchen.
Next among these unique small shops screams bachelorette and bridal party to me! Talk about the perfect gift for your besties. Custom glitter tumblers and yetis, need I say more? Backyard BBQ, birthdays, NYE… I could keep going, but you get the point. So FUN!
I definitely consider myself a bit of a pillow snob. These fabric pillow covers are hand made in the USA and the quality and craftsmanship is superb. This unique small shop also offers pillows crafted from one of a kind vintage rugs. You can also purchase fabric by the yard, wallpaper, and murals.
I’m always impressed with hand-built wooden signs. The Little Bird shop owner Jennie, designs, builds, and hand-paints each sign. Each piece is unique, so the grain of wood and brush strokes may differ slightly from piece to piece. I was so impressed with the entire presentation from unboxing to hanging the piece I chose.
What gal doesn’t love jewelry? This unique small shop began after owner, Sheila, was going through a hard time. She hand crafted herself a word necklace as a daily reminder. You can read more of her story here. Some of Sheila’s unique pieces feature real pressed flowers set in resin. She also offers custom pieces made from a bride’s wedding bouquet.
