Small Business Saturday is this weekend. In honor of this shopping day, I'd like to highlight a few folks and their small businesses! What are your favorite shops? Let me know!
Genevieve Santos - Le Petit Elephant
Genevieve is an amazing artist that I can't speak enough about. She is having a Black Friday Sale on her site that is going on throughout the weekend. For folks who are in Los Angeles, Genevieve will be in town at Leanna Lin's Wonderland for the We Heart Eagle Rock Block Party for Live Drawing & Pop-Up Shop. You can pick up holiday ornaments, Christmas cards, and holiday tags!
Amy Watkins has the distinct honor of being my first Oblivious Interview! Her shop Cozy Reverie has several things that you can pick up for the holidays! Amy's store has a discount code below that you can use on purchases on her society6 shop!Amy is also releasing her second book this holiday season! Reindeer Potluck is available for pre-order via her etsy store today! Who knew Reindeer's had potlucks before they head out with Santa!
Espacio 1839 - Imix Bookstore
Back in the day Imix Bookstore in Eagle Rock was my go to indie bookstore. When they closed up shop in Eagle Rock I was super bummed. However thankfully they have since been housed in Espacio 1839 in Boyle Heights! The space holds Imix Bookstore, Radio Sombra, and other shops!
Native Sol is an awesome artist who makes beautiful handmade pieces of jewelry. Her shop is based out of Long Beach (433 E. Broadway Long Beach, CA 90802 ). I love how she infuses batik fabrics into a lot of her pieces. If you are out in the South Bay, definitely check out her space!
There is a sense of joy in giving gifts to our loved ones. I hope you all are able to find awesome things to share with those you love!
