Hey friends! It's holiday time and I'm seriously loving it. My husband and my wallet probably don't agree since it's my most faaaavorite time to shop! But not the crazy mall shopping that happens this time of year. I'd really rather not go there at all. I prefer doing my shopping online and at local boutique events! Shopping local is something I really love to do, I love supporting those little shops that put out a great product. I've discovered a few new favorite small shops that I wanted to share with you! And as an added bonus I will be giving away a $25 shop credit to Etsy for you to use on any of these shops! A few of the shops will also be giving something away or offering a coupon code, so keep your eyes peeled for those deals!
I discovered this vendor at a few of the local boutique events I went to this month. She creates the most gorgeous & simple jewelry from gemstones & 14k gold! If you love a simple or layered necklace look with stunning gems, this is the place to look. Her prices are also great compared to similar pieces I've seen out there. I own two of her necklaces myself and will probably add more to my collection! Voulez Jewelry is giving away a gorgeous necklace (the one on the left) from her collection as part of the giveaway below, be sure to enter!
Handmade wooden toys for my little kiddo is such a weakness and Wooden Giraffe makes some seriously gorgeous, handcrafted wooden pieces. We bought my 2-year-old a train set from them (similar pictured) last year and it's definitely a favorite in our house! The pieces are so well made and so much better than what you'd find at toys r us.
This shop is such a great place to find gifts for family members & gorgeous prints to hang in your own home! I'm a fan of the temple prints and have given them as gifts to family members. They are always a hit! The prints are a simple & gorgeous style and look so good hanging on your wall. Make sure to check it out! Collectivity Lane is giving away TWO of their gorgeous prints as part of the giveaway below (found here & here)!
I follow Amanda's shop on instagram & have seen her beautiful jewelry locally as well and I am always swooning over her pieces. A ring from this shop is sitting on my Christmas wish list! She hand makes all of her jewelry and uses natural cut gemstones that make every piece super unique. I'm always amazed at the craftsmanship it takes to make unique, durable, and pretty jewelry and I really think Amanda nails it. Right now Amanda is offering 20% off everything in her shop! Use the code holiday20. The code expires TOMORROW so be quick! And in case that's not awesome enough, Olive Deer is also offering a $25 credit to their shop as part of the giveaway below!
This shop is totally my jam. She has simple & unique jewelry pieces that are super layerable, AND has the cutest shelving I've ever seen. I die over her hexagon and triangle shelves! I may have finally talked the husband into getting a few for the baby nursery. If you're into the geometric look (and I definitely am), this is the shop for you. Check it out!
I don't think there's anything cuter in this whole world that baby shoes. Becca makes the cutest booties for the little ones! A lot of her styles are gender neutral which I totally appreciate since it's harder to come by cute little shoes for boys. And I will have 2 of those. Stock up on these warm things for your kiddos this winter!
I'd been on the hunt for a cute & unique clutch when I came across this little shop at a local event. Her designs are to die for. Fun, trendy prints mixed with faux leather and it's a perfect combo. I also love her travel makeup bags! The detail work that goes into these things is amazing. The inner liner of the bag is a cute fabric as well, and she uses a fun zipper with a little tassel at the end! The details are always what gets me. Lacy Lou designs is also offering an exclusive coupon code for free shipping to Janelle In Real Life readers! The code is REALLIFEJANELLE. Her shop will be open until December 15th and then will be closing for the holidays until January. Hurry and use that code!
And now we get to the really good stuff. Here's a chance for you to win a $25 Etsy gift card, $25 shop credit to Olive Deer, two holiday prints from Collectivity Lane, or a necklace from Voulez Jewelry! That's over $100 in prizes and there will be 4 winners! Good luck, enter below with Rafflecopter.
