While you may be scooping up deals to save during Black Friday, designate some of the money you are saving to use during Small Business Saturday. Presented by American Express, Small Business Saturday is a way to honor small local and online merchants who are the backbone of the economy.
Once Upon a Tree House— I’m always on the hunt for high quality toys to give as gifts and was thrilled to be introduced to Once Upon a Tree House and their incredible line that includes handmade dolls, maple wood dollhouses, beautiful furniture, doll clothing, and accessories.
Company founders and sisters, Lori and Tara, personally select family owned German and American manufacturers with years of experience creating high quality and long lasting products but with a modern spin. Once Upon a Tree House’s products are eco-friendly since they’re manufactured out of sustainable wood and fabric. Multicultural dolls featuring gentle expressions typical of Waldorf style are hand painted to be unique, reflecting true individuality. By purchasing a doll from Once Upon a Tree House, you also become a Fairy DollMother. The Fairy DollMother Program is a charitable commitment to provide a doll to a child in need with ever purchase of a doll from their site. Simply great products from a company with a huge commitment to helping kids in need!
The Mother Company— I know I can’t stop talking about The Mother Company! Working closely with founders Sam and Abbie has shown me their dedication to their goal of “helping parents raise good people” through Ruby’s Studio products.
From a DVD I fell in love with, to their new line of books, this small company’s mission to develop emotional literacy in children is evident through consistent positive messaging that empowers kids to open up and share their feelings even at a very young age. Support The Mother Company by purchasing affordable enriching gifts with a thoughtful message. The books (pictured below) are $12.95 each and you can get free shipping with the code FREESHIP11. Be on the lookout for some great fabulous deals through the holiday weekend. Oh, and they’re giving away a $100 Whole Foods gift certificate every week in December as a gesture of thanks to their fans!
Studio Jewel— My favorite pieces of jewelry are handmade with a lot of love by Lisa Lehmann, aka @TheBeadGirl.
Lisa is a one-woman operation who loves playing with metal and fire between home schooling her kids. Her inspiration comes from within and from fellow artists like famous sculptor, Alexander Calder. She handcrafts each incredible piece and is just as nice in real life as anyone could ever be. Shop through Lisa’s Studio Jewel website or her Etsy store.
