True love and passion are rooted in small businesses. The people involved are right there, living out their dream through their growing brand. It is more intimate, more special, more unique. Treasures can only really be found in such small businesses. (You're not finding handmade jewelry or antique decor at Target, are you?) I wanted to share the brands I have found as of lately that I have absolutely fallen in love with. If you are into dainty accessories, cozy crewnecks, or stunning antique pieces, you are sure to love these businesses.
Who doesn't love scrunchies and crewnecks? The founder of Lovers in Lace, Kaile, makes everything herself, putting in hours of precious love and time into this quickly growing business. She has just upgraded Lovers in Lace from being an Etsy store to an official website and boy, is it beautiful. Kaile is into graphic design as well and her skills shine through on www.loversinlace.com. (P.S. If you're a Harry Styles fan, you'll definitely find yourself obsessed with her brand!)
Nestled in a street of Tarrytown, New York, The Swan's House offers just about everything, from rare vintage decor and various staple pieces for your home to books and beautiful stationery. Though I do not live in New York, I have purchased items from The Swan's House in the past for gifts to others (and I have many of their new arrivals on my wishlist!). Keep your eye out on their budding Instagram page and you will be sure to find the item of your dreams.
Discover every jewelry piece you can dream of here. Kate, the owner of Precious by Kate, creates the jewelry herself and has poured her heart and soul into this beautiful business. Lose yourself in her impressive array of earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and more. (Plus, she has a killer YouTube channel that just hit 100k! Be sure to subscribe, her videos are so fun.)
Not only are these small businesses beautiful in every sense of the word - the powerful women behind them are as well! Be sure to check out all of their online platforms, I promise you will fall in love. I love supporting and prioritizing small, local brands, so if you have any favorites that you cannot stop buying from, please share them with me!
