A Creative Collective of Independent Small Business:

As you shop this holiday season and beyond, here is a diverse list of independent small businesses you won't find in a retail space. These creative shops are listed alphabetically and by category. From herbal tinctures to keep you healthy, to art, jewelry, clothing, natural products, and more. I hope you'll find something you love!
