Shopping Small in Charleston
IMG_1841.JPG

By now it’s almost a trendy notion to “shop small” for the holidays.  Since opening a store, we have come to appreciate what impact shopping small really brings!  We both worked in retail for a lot of our high school and college years, and that usually meant working to meet a quota for a corporate company.   When you buy local, you’re making a purchase that shows you're believing in someone’s dream.  You're buying from someone that could be your own neighbor or child's teacher, and even a small sale is noticeable when you’re a maker.  We definitely have goals we are trying to meet for our balloon & product sales, but our biggest goal is to offer a happy spot for our community where you want to come again and again and where up and coming brands are getting to sell their products!  We also sell balloons, so we love helping out other locals for events or to draw attention to their place of business. 

We have about a dozen vendors that sell their wares within our ~400 square foot shop.  When we call them to let them know they are sold out of something, do you know how excited we all get?!  When they have to restock something, that usually means they are taking time out of their nights and weekends to make something by hand for us.  In fact, most of our vendors work other full time jobs so their products are truly a labor of love.

We wanted to share some of our favorite small businesses around town so that you have plenty of local options to shop with this season.  You’ll often see the owners themselves working, so remember how much more special your purchase will be to the person behind the register.
