I love the whole handmade movement/community!
I love Etsy, it brings together some rad shops all in place.
Shopping small businesses is cool because the products are just so good! As a small business owner, I know that so much time and love goes into every little decision about your brand. We stress and fret trying to go above and beyond for every customer (but also not go broke ;) Supporting a home grown brand is also giving Mom's like me an opportunity to create and help support my family, while staying home with my son. These are a few really cool shops that I follow and love to support (several are stay at home/working moms).
