Small Business Gift Guide 2018

With the holidays approaching, I thought it would be fun to put together a gift guide filled with some of my favorite movers and shakers! These are all small businesses that I love and admire. Some could fulfill your stocking stuffer needs, others are a more of a splurge, but all are totally amazing and run by hard working people. (Actually, now that I'm looking at my list, I'm almost certain they're all women owned businesses).
As I started making this list, I realized I could probably fill it with pages of people I've met over the years. Please know that I wanted to add more but at some point I had to stop because it was mid morning and I still had a full day of sewing to get to...!
