I am a huge supporter of artists and artisans all year, but especially on Small Business Saturday.
Below as some small businesses owned by artists that I know (and endorse). Most of these businesses are historical or nerdy (as I am both), so they may not be your cup of tea, but it’s always fun to check out new businesses, right?
Carolyn’s Geek Boutique– I love her aprons and hooded towels
September Girl Designs– Dianne makes all kinds of awesome stuff, but I really love that she makes T-shirt quilts with your old shirts. This is great if you have theatre shirts from old productions or camp shirts, or if you have a loved one who has passed and you want to make something from their old shirts.
Kit’s Designs– Kit makes THE BEST EARRINGS! Is there a book that you loved as a kid? She can make earrings or a pendant of that book. Or Christmas ornaments.
Northernridge Glassworks– Awesome handmade lampworked glass beads.
CokGuzel– Handcrafted historically inspired jewelry and fabric
Viking Krafts– Rick makes beautiful knives, wooden chests, and all sorts of other goodies. I have several of his chests in my home.
The Brackish Baroness– Angela is immensely talented. Cloisonne jewelry, hand stamped copper jewelry, and fan art prints are among some of the cool stuff in her etsy shop.
Wyng’d Lyon Creations– Decals, accessories, jewelry, Cosplay goodies, even corset making supplies. Colleen has it all!
