Small businesses are the heart of America, and coronavirus is not our friend. So in between my amazon prime purchases, I make a conscious effort to shop local!
These people have artist’s souls, and I love their work. You should definitely check them out and if compelled, consider shopping local for Mother’s Day this year! Or any day, that is 🙂
(And PLEASE share your own local finds with me- I loving discovering new gems!!)

Wildcard Pittsburgh gift shop has lots of local finds
I also wanted to give a shout out to Carrie Nardini, leader of the I Made It (IMI) Market team here in Pittsburgh. She is a strong advocate of the craft community here in Pittsburgh, and despite the hit that the industry has taken lately, she continues to support small businesses like mine and the ones listed above. Check out IMI’s list of local online shops that her team has compiled, to explore lots of other talented makers here in the Pittsburgh area.
and Happy Shopping!! <3
