Buy Local : Online
This year I’m encouraging you to order all your gifts online, but do it from a local company instead of Amazon.
It’s convenient, fun and you will be helping a great local artist or craftsperson and entrepreneur.
Be a local hero and follow them on social, share their site with your friends and buy a gift for someone else from them online.
Here are a couple of Oregon based, one woman run companies that I love, to make it easy for you.
alobeejewelry.com – Handmade in Ashland by Kriya. AloBee Jewelry is made up of one of kind pieces that allow you to express your unique self. No piece will be the same as the one before it, which makes AloBee so special.
Kakes By Kenz
KakesByKenz.com – Kenz is a mom with little ones and she bakes from her home in the Albany area, custom cakes and cookies for any occasion. They look amazing and taste too good. I have had many.
shop-bsm.myshopify.com/ – Every single pair of shoes and piece of jewelry is handmade and painted by Brailey Shaye Murray. That means each individual stroke, stitch and bead is a one woman show.
Every piece is made with care.
