First of all, let me assure you that I did have this idea before I saw The Crescat doing the same thing. I mean, it is tempting to plagiarize all The Crescat’s posts, and my blog would be a lot better if I did, but I really was planning to highlight my favorite family-owned businesses before she did it first. Anyway, be sure to check out her post too.
Without further ado, here are some of my favorite small businesses that have wonderful products. I have either personally done business with all of them, or have heard good things from people who have. And I haven’t received any compensation for promoting these businesses — I just like them.
I love, love, love my Catholic day planner I got from them, and use it every day.
I’m so excited about getting one of these for my girls this Christmas. I just can’t decide between the Sisters of Life doll and the Dominican Sisters one.
I want one of everything at the Axis Mundi Esty store. It’s some of the prettiest jewelry I’ve seen, and so the fact that much of it is faith-based is a great bonus!
One of my favorite thank-you gifts is to send someone a box of dark chocolate made by Cistercian nuns, but Monastery Greetings has tons of other products made my convents and monasteries as well.
The customer service at Trendy Traditions is as great as their products — love this shop for rosaries and other customized religious gifts.
I’m sure I’m going to think of some great ones I forgot as soon as I hit Publish, but these are some favorite stores I thought of off the top of my head. Feel free to promote other small businesses in the comments!
