Giving Back by Supporting Small Businesses

Artisans, makers, and independent businesses are eager for our patronage this time of year. Many have an online presence that makes shopping easy, and a gift from them is more personal than going to a big online store.

Below are a handful of our best-loved items from our favorite small businesses around Boston and beyond. Whether you’re searching for a just-right gift or putting together your own 2021 wish list, check them out here.

  • For our go-to fruit bowl (The Lo Lacey Bowl): The husband-and-wife duo of Jill Rosenwald and Lawrence McRae ​sculpt beautiful pottery in an array of current colors in their Fort Point studio.
  • For pillows that are practically perfect: Judy Ross Textiles​ is a website that we visit time and time again for hues that match every room.  She also carries scarves, throw blankets and custom bed covers made entirely by hand. 
  • For a vase that’s so stunning it doesn’t even need flowers: Shop the striking hand blown glass at SkLO
  • For original artwork to complete your favorite room: Jules Place is an art gallery near our South End, Boston studio that is booking virtual appointments.

Of course don’t forget your own local toy shops, gift stores, and home goods retailers that need our support right now. Even if all of your big holiday shopping is done (lucky you!) a small visit to grab those last minute stocking stuffers might be just what they need.

Happy holiday shopping and cheers to 2021 right around the corner. If you ask me, it can’t come soon enough!Until next time,
