Small Businesses You Should Be Supporting in 2019

Last year, my very first blog was “My Favorite Small Shops”, because before I started my blog my daughter Leilani was a brand rep. Since then, I have had the chance to learn about more small shops! From crotchet, bath bombs, and children clothing. It’s so exciting! I hope you take a moment to check out one, or everyone of these small businesses. Some of them, I even have a code to help you save 10% if you decided to purchase!

You may or may not know that I love photography so if you’re in the Colorado area, hit your girl up!

Kara Kelley Photography

Hi Ya’ll! I’m Kara, a lifestyle photographer serving the Greater Fort Polk area in Louisiana! I love to capture those authentic moments that you, your children and even their children will forever cherish. From your toddler laughing at you making noises and silly faces behind me, to your dog trying to get the treat you’re holding up, and the true authentic connection between you and your significant other! My goal is to always create the best memories that you and your family will always remember and forever cherish!

Just Dandy

So you know those people that seem to always making something? That one person that makes it their mission to recreate something rather than buy it from the store?
That’s me, I’m that person. I’ve always been crafty and after I found out I was pregnant with my first son I wanted to make him anything and everything. I wanted him to have something I made him. Something that wasn’t just bought from a store but that was handmade and homemade. Something that who knows, he could keep forever and pass on to his kids. That specific thought sparked Just Dandy Works. Making something that a child or family could have forever.
Crochet gives me a creative outlet to make something truly come to life with just some yarn. The possibilities were endless and once I started I couldn’t stop. And to be honest… once I saw something I made in a child’s arms making them so happy I knew this is what I want to do with my life.
A motto I like to say about my items.
Nothing I make is “perfect.”
But everything I make is one of a kind.

Jus Create

I’m pretty much a wide range shop. I opened in Sept 2012 as a way to share my crafting with others and to keep busy while my husband was first deployed. I started off with bows and maternity sashes, expanded into wooden signs and then expanded into the vinyl world. I’ve recently been approved by 3 vendors for boutique styled clothing which I’ve added into the shop for some variety (on our second round of pre sale clothes currently). I like to think of my self a recreation and custom shop. Most of my customers come to me with ideas and I re create them for them. I definitely have open communication between myself and my customers which is why I stray from Etsy being so custom. Vinyl is definitely my top seller (shirts, cups, decals, signs, etc)

Production time is approximately 10-15 business days. This does not include day of order, holidays or weekends. We are a family of 6 and run this together with no additional help & we do our very best to stay on track with timelines but sometimes we can go a day or two over.

We really appreciate all the support!! It makes my heart happy to see all the sweet babes smiling faces!

LaLuna Company

Laluna is the product of a combination of forces. My husband Ricky and I found a unique need in the market after we had our daughter Logan. Logan was born 4 weeks early, healthy, but always petite. After sewing custom clothes to fit her and other tiny kiddos around the world, we decided that everyone should enjoy the same comfort Logan got from her parents. We started Laluna to create clothes and custom heirloom Minky blankets.

After selling out of blankets quicker than we could make them, we switched gears to keep up with the demand. Adults everywhere wanted something they could wrap themselves in. We are so grateful that we can be a part of your special moments and memories when you are snuggled up in a Laluna blanket. Newborns come home in our Little Travelers and grandparents snuggle their grandkids on the couch in adult sizes.
