I have made a list of my favorite small shops to support this holiday season for you in hopes you find something you like there too!
We all know these last two years have been hard on shop owners.
While online shopping is very likely at an all time high (based on my own personal opinions and habits 😂), supporting small businesses is more important than ever.
Now I am the first one to say – I love that my Amazon stock is literally 500% higher than what I paid for it.
But I find the smaller shops are just as reliable (sometimes even more so!) and have pretty dang fast shipping too!
Most of these ladies I interact with on Instagram and love seeing their successes.
It would be awesome if you checked out a few of them (or ALL OF THEM) out too!!

My Favorite Small Shops to Support
This is a local small shop for me.
I have seen her jewelry and signs in person and they are truly gorgeous!!
I have shopped for holiday decor at Nigh Road for two years now.
And have even met Vanessa in person in Waco, Texas this year ;)!!
I currently have a clothing order placed with Nigh Road and cannot wait to receive it.
I will certainly be putting my review for that on my Instagram stories FYI!
This trio of wooden trees is from Nigh Road’s holiday collection last year. They were available again this year but are now in a “Notify Me for Restock Availability” status 🤪.
I purchased this fun gold tree last season as well. It comes in two sizes but of course – sells out FAST!
As of writing this post – the small size is still available…
My Embroidery Creations
I ordered personalized bags, water bottles, and caps from this company for a content creator retreat I recently helped coordinate.
Michelle is super easy to work with and is sooo talented!
If you are looking for something to personalize – she is your gal!
Plus – who doesn’t love personalized items???
Michelle is still building her website but takes orders via Instagram DM – so easy!!
The Polished Jar
Another Waco swag bag item that I am rather obsessed with!
So much so that I am giving bottles as gifts to many people on my list this year!!
Great customer service and SUPER fast shipping of their beautiful products!
Be sure to look at everything they offer too – kinda love all of it!
I may or may not have two of these Evergreen bottles coming in the mail this week!
Minty Salvage has been my go to shop for signs, beads, trays, etc for as long as I can remember!!
Heather is so kind and is always up for bringing your ideas to reality ;).
This sign was custom made by Minty Salvage and is on her Etsy website now!
Heather has many options for bead colors!
The Always Believe sign is one of my favorites from her.
I have a similar style that says “Harvest” for fall also!
It’s More Than a Home Candles
I have been friends on Instagram with these two ladies for years and just adore them!
They have been making candles for a while now and I finally got to try one this season ;).
Pepper and Pearl Clothing Boutique
This boutique is owned by one of my favorite Instagram friends.
I have purchased plenty of cute clothing items from her shop and can attest to the quality of them!
Christina is another shop owner that values customer service too ;).
I hope that this list of my favorite small shops to support was inspiring to you while you are looking for holiday gifts and decor.
I appreciate the efforts small businesses go to to provide great service.
And having a relationship with most of the owners on this list makes it all the more special to know you are helping them accomplish their dreams ;)!
